Book Review - Space Number Crunch

Space Number Crunch: The Figures, Facts, and Out of This World Stats You Need to Know

About the Book

This book about space gives kids all the facts, figures, and amazing information they want to know.

It's bursting with colorful infographics, high-impact artwork, and includes:
  • Space Record Breakers: random record setters such as the Sputnik orbit, Halley's Comet, and space tourist Dennis Tito
  • Astronauts: first spaceman and woman, most time spent in space, the first moon landing, astronaut records in space, and more
  • Galaxies: information that ranges from the oldest galaxies (13 billion years old) to the sheer number of galaxies in the universe (at least 100 million)
  • Telescopes: the first, the biggest, the most expensive, and the most powerful
  • Space Technology: robots, rovers, satellites, probes, and special space tech
  • Sun: fascinating facts about its size, temperature, and power
  • Number Crunch quiz, and so much more

Each piece of data is based around a number, creating an entire book of easy-to-understand information that will delight even the most reluctant readers. The comprehensive coverage includes key space facts, from the International Space Station to the planets, animals in space, the weird and wonderful, and beyond.

My Take on the Book
This was a fascinating book for anyone interested in our galaxy, space exploration, our planets or other such things. Each page is filled with fun facts about all aspects of outer space. Some of the facts are humorous, but more will just open your eyes to the differences between our planets and what it really means to be a citizen beyond our mere planet. The book educates and entertains and by the end you have learned so much, or at least I know I did!
