About this title

Synopsis:

Launched in 1977, two tiny Voyager spacecraft made an extraordinary journey across billions of miles of space to give scientists their first close look at the solar system’s most distant worlds. Pioneering astronaut Sally Ride and noted science writer Tam O’Shaughnessy re-create the Voyager adventure in this dramatically illustrated book. They describe the spacecraft’s astonishing discoveries, from previously unseen rings around the giant planets to unimagined volcanoes on their moons and unbelievably violent storms in their atmospheres. Written especially for readers ages 10-14, but an awe-inspiring journey of discovery for readers of all ages. NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children AAAS SB&Fs Best Children’s Science Book 40 pages 8 3/4" x 11 5/8" Hardcover

From the Inside Flap:

Full-color photographs from the NASA files. Astronaut Sally Ride describes one of NASA's greatest accomplishments: the 12-year interplanetary flight of the Voyager space probes. Ride gives an insider's account of the mission, the spacecraft, and some of their truly remarkable discoveries--including previously unseen rings around the planets and unsuspected volcanoes on the solar system's moons.
