Review:A feast for the eyes with vibrant illustrations and photographs and food for the brain with detailed text, charts, biographies, and timelines, this encyclopedia and CD-ROM set provides an interactive and intergalactic journey into space. In addition to explaining the universe clearly and comprehensively, the book emphasizes career opportunities and the ethical, social and environmental issues of space exploration. Most of the content and vocabulary would be difficult for lower age groups to comprehend, but for older children, this set offers a balanced, multidisciplinary approach to space science and astronomy.
