As tall as a 30-story building, orbiting Earth at 17,500 miles an hour, the International Space Station is a triumph of engineering. Find out what life will be like for the astronauts who will live there in this latest book from the originator of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. An introduction by Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter, a page of activities, and a double-sided poster showing the complete Station make this spectacular, information-packed book a must-have for anyone with an interest in humanity's next great frontier.
