Thames & Kosmos Space Exploration: The Planets, Moon Stars, Solar System & Rockets
Blast off on a mission to explore outer space and the objects in it. Learn about rocket propulsion with balloons and chemically powered rockets. Build a telescope and star map to investigate the stars and constellations. Assemble a model of the solar system and learn about the planets that share it.
Find out how Earthâ‚¬â„¢s rotation creates day and night, how Earthâ‚¬â„¢s axis and revolution around the sun causes the seasons, and how the moonâ‚¬â„¢s rotation around Earth gives us the phases of the moon. See for yourself how meteorites formed the craters on the moon. Make a moon flipbook and a moon calendar. Build a sundial and a solar collector to experiment with the sun. Grasp a cometâ‚¬â„¢s tail and learn about how meteoroids become falling stars.
