Description - Incredible Stories from Space by Nancy Atkinson
In The Incredible Stories of Modern Space Exploration, Nancy takes readers beyond the surface of what some of the most sophisticated space rovers, orbiters and telescopes are discovering in the sky above. This detailed guide provides information on these missions and the science surrounding them, as well as inside interviews with the scientists and engineers who conceive mission concepts, build the spacecraft, study the data and care for the spacecraft.
From the center of our universe, the Sun, readers will see how the Solar Dynamics Observatory gives us the best look ever at the "star" of our solar system by taking images every 0.75 seconds and how that helps scientists understand the mysteries of its turbulent surface and unseen interior. From there, readers can learn more about other missions that are hot in the news such as the Mars Rover, Kepler and the Search for Other Worlds, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and Unlocking Jupiter's Secrets through the Juno spacecraft.
