My Terrific Spaceship

Blast off into space to see why space is so terrific in this nonfiction story.
Five, four, three, two, one, BLASTOFF! Come along on a stellar adventure to space in this nonfiction story and see what makes space so terrific. After launching into orbit, suit up for a space walk—IF you can. Even suiting up can be challenging in space where everything floooaaaaats without gravity. Check out how the view from orbit is much different than the view of space from Earth, then head out on a space walk to fix a broken satellite. Wondering about life on Mars is pretty terrific too. What do you think makes space so terrific? Why?
