Today I would like to tell you some facts about space. The earth spins around at a rate of 1670km/h that’s 3 times faster than the fastest train. It also orbits the Sun at a steady 107,000km/h.
If you want to be an astronaut you must be able to speak and read Russian. you have to be able to swim. You must be 157 to 190.5cm tall. You must be trained in wildness survive. You need a university degree in science or mathematics. You have to be able to pilot a jet plane.
The ancient Maya were expert astronomers. They could predict cyclical movement of the Sun, Moon, Stars and Planets. The Maya discovered that the start of the 365-day earth year coincided with the start of 584-day Venus cycle once every eight years. The Maya would have considered this a good time to raid arrival city.

I have learnt those things from this book. This book is very interesting.

This book is very interesting. Let me tell you some facts. The solar system is 800,000km/h(5000,000mph). There are 10 million superclusters in the universe. This means 100 billion galaxies, bringing the total number of stars to well over 10,000,000,000,000,000,000.000. The Milky Way is made up of at least 200 billion stars. From one side of the earth, it’s only possible to see millions of stars with a had telescope. Ten large objects the space between Mars and Jupiter were discovered in the 1800s.
Scientist have learnt much more about what happened during most of the first second of time but what happened during the very first 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 second ( that’s 24 zeroes after the decimal point0 is a still big mystery. The first astronauts were fruit flies in 1947. Lunched to a height of 109km (68 miles) in V-2 rocket, they were recovered alive. Scientist think that astronomer Frank Drake equation is a useful starting place. Here’s how it works; R*x fp x ne x fl x fi x fc = N

More than a million earths could fit in the sun. If you see look in the sun directly it can damage your eyes.

In my country Japan people think rabbits live in the moon, if you see the moon. Mum said that’s romantic to try to find a rabbit in the moon.

Nobody gone beyond the moon. 536 have reached space. 216 have been to the internal space. 24 have flown around the moon. 12 have walked on the moon.
A wormhole could sack you a million years later.
It would take 1,500 lifetimes to travel to the sun’s nearest star.

If you discover a comet it will be named after you.

I have learnt so many things about space which is awesome.

This book has got lots of intresting content. It gives you information about the planets and stars. I always knew there were lots of stars but there is actually more then anyone could ever imagine! The only thing the Alex Frith (the author) could of done better in was the layout I think he could of done a better job of making it seem more intresting in the formmat.
I recomend this book for those who love space and want to learn more!
