Did you know that sliced bread is banned in space as the crumbs can float around and damage equipment! And that there is an estimated 181,437 kg of man-made materials left on the moon from Apollo missions!
Jam packed with fun facts and information, Blast Off to the Moon follows the thrilling story of Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and ‘Buzz’ Aldrin Jr. as they make their unforgettably epic trip to the moon!
Featuring exclusive NASA photography and an introduction written by Helen Sherman (the first woman to visit the Mir Space Station), I got lost in the ‘out of this world’ (pun intended) story of humankind’s greatest achievement.
With extra brilliant material like space menus and how to put on a spacesuit this book will delight space enthusiasts both young and old. Brilliantly detailed yet accessible for children, Ralph Timberlake has skilfully captured the excitement of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing whilst inspiring and encouraging a love of learning about science and space.
The 20th July marks the 50th anniversary of the first man on the moon and this book makes for a perfect celebration of this.
Blast Off to the Moon! is available from Amazon here.
