Brilliant ResourceWe borrowed this book during a school topic and took it with us on a visit to the planetarium. Holding the tactile drawings on his lap to touch during the show really brought the presentation alive for him and he was one of the first children in the class to learn the planets in order.Teacher

This fact book is a guide to space exploration including the moon landing, rocket launches, shuttle flights and more. The audio guide is a dramatisation – Lisa is keen to learn about space for a school project and Boris, a friendly astronaut on board the ISS, helps her. Boris and his friends answers her questions about every aspect of space exploration from gravity to holidays in space. This fact book may support subjects in the National Curriculum and is great as an educational resource in class. It is also good for home-schooling, homework-help, project work and independent learning and reading for pleasure.

In space there is no atmosphere to supply the pressure and oxygen necessary to support life. If we didn't wear our special suits our body fluids would heat up and boil and without oxygen we would not be able to breathe. Space suits are pressurised and have an in built oxygen supply, and the material they're made of protects us from severe temperature changes.
