Summary, etc.:
"In a series of fun and involving hands-on astronomy experiments, kids learn how distance from the sun affects atmospheric temperature, why the Earth is called the 'Blue Planet,' why Jupiter's ring shines, and how to reproduce Mars' red soil and Jupiter's stormy red spot. They will also determine why radio wave receivers are curved, how radio waves are sent around the Earth via satellite, how satellites enter into orbit, and how rockets achieve escape velocity. Featuring color illustrations and safe, simple step-by-step instructions, Janice VanCleave again shows just how much fun science can be"--From the publisher's web site.
