For millennia, humanity has looked to the stars with wonder and longing. The dream of taking flight and exploring the solar system was realized in the 1950s, when the first satellites and manned orbital missions were launched. Humans continue to send scientific instruments, telescopes, and astronauts into space in an effort to learn more about the universe and about Earth. This title will explain the practical and scientific benefits of space exploration, from tracking climate change to global cooperation through shared research.
