Introduction

The topic of this book is how scientists explore space. Some information about the topic is that scientists are exploring the size of the universe. Some other information is it takes four years for light from Earth to travel to the nearest star. Something I knew about this topic is scientists have sent a lot of probes to planets.

Graphics

There is a photo of the Moon taken by Japan's Kaguya space probe. I think the author included this picture because on that page he was talking about the Moon and the distant between the Moon and Earth. On this page is page 14.

Question

I think the author purpose for writing this book is so kids can learn about space and how scientist explore space. The reason I think that this book is about space is because They tell you a lot of facts about space. For example one fact is the universe is mysteriously expanding. The reason I think that this book is also about how scientist explore space is because this book talks about all types of space probes and space rovers.
