Heroes of Space: Who Changed the World
In 1609, Galileo discovered the universe revolves around the sun. Hundreds of years later, in 1912, Henrietta Swan Leavitt found a way to measure the stars. In 1934, Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space. And everyone has heard of Neil Armstrong. This book explores early astronomy, the first space shuttle, chimps in space, other solar systems, and more. Our knowledge of space is constantly expanding, but one thing stays the same: The universe is fascinating. Get the inside scoop on old friends like Neil, and learn about people you’ve probably never heard of like Valentina Tereshkova. From beginning to end, this book is very informative.
This book is interesting because it is an educational, nonfiction graphic novel. There aren’t many of those. The bright, vivid illustrations help bring the story alive. Other books in the Graphic Greats series are Heroes of Flight, Heroes of Discovery, and Heroes of Science.
If you like learning about rockets, science, and other spacey stuff, you should find the nearest bookstore.
