1,000 FACTS ABOUT SPACE
BY DEAN REGAS
ASTRONOMER, CINCINNATI OBSERVATORY
From the Foreword:
In this book you can see some of the amazing sights I’ve seen in telescopes—plus a lot more that are spread out across all of space. You’ll learn about what it’s like to live in space and walk on the moon. You’ll explore the rings of Saturn, check out the strangest stars in our galaxy, and dive into a black hole. You’ll travel to alien worlds that have several suns in their skies and start counting the billions and billions of galaxies in our universe.
The facts in this book are laid out so you can flip to any page and learn something new. If you especially like a certain part of the universe, you can go to that section and read and reread it until you know them all. I hope you find a lot of facts in here that you can share with others.
So sit back, get in launch position, and prepare to blast off on a journey to the farthest reaches of the universe.
