Synopsis: GEMINI 4 pilot Ed White could see Hawaii, California, Texas, and Florida. Millions of Americans had seen these places before, but White had a unique view. He looked at them while walking in space! One hundred miles above Earth and moving freely outside the GEMINI 4 spacecraft, White saw these states as tiny stepping stones. The first American spacewalk was a monumental achievement, and it helped push the space program toward its ultimate goal of landing men on the Moon. From the brave astronauts to the technology that made it possible, author Carl R. Green explores the astounding GEMINI 4 mission.

From School Library Journal: Gr 4-6-The differences between the previous series, "Countdown to Space" and "Space Flight Adventures and Disasters," and these updated versions would appear to be the inclusion of more recent events in the field, updated website listings, and superior photography. All of the books reflect careful research and meticulous attention to detail. Eye on the Universe discusses the initial difficulties with the Hubble telescope and the missions that repaired it, allowing scientists to see planets in galaxies 13 billion light years away. Coolest Job focuses on the construction of the ISS, what life is like onboard, and the importance of the research projects conducted. Danger in Space chronicles the drama of the Apollo 13 mission, whose goal of a Moon landing changed to one of survival. Space Shuttle Disaster deals with the tragedy up front, and then backtracks to the causes. Spacewalk explains how this event paved the way for missions to the Moon, and Walking on the Moon relives that momentous event. Throughout, the courage, dedication, and sacrifice of the astronauts are emphasized. The texts are not bogged down with excessive scientific terminology.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.
