Is there life beyond Earth? What will the space jobs of the future look like? What went wrong on Apollo 13? The Space Race answers all of the big questions that kids have about space travel. Astrophysics expert Sarah Cruddas unearths hidden stories behind famous space missions. Space-mad kids will delight in the detail, photographs, and information on each page, and will love seeing diagrams of iconic space suits andthe car on the moon.

Readers will learn about life during the space age of the sixties, visit other worlds alongside robot explorers, and shoot off to the Moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Find out about the space race between American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts, observe what life is like on the ISS, and discover new space nations such as China and the UK.

Propelled by recent scientific discoveries and printed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, The Space Race is an essential children's handbook to understanding every aspect of the history, and future, of human space travel.
