Astronauts do what nearly no one else does - They go into space. They do that in a space shuttle, which is sort of like a rocket plane. They buckle up and get ready. The engines start. 3 – 2 – 1 – GO! Soon the shuttle is high above the clouds. Wow! First the astronauts fly through the earth’s atmosphere and then they arrive in space. Now the astronauts can get to work in the space station.
An instructive, engaging book for children about astronauts, the space shuttle and space travel. For ages 4 and up.
