Aspiring astronauts will love discovering wonderful trivia about outer space, from the first flower grown out there, to the tallest mountain in the solar system, to the fact that Saturn could float in water! There are fun tidbits about tortoises orbiting the Moon, Martian rocks here on Earth, and lightning bolts one and a half times as long as our galaxy! Also, you’ll laugh out loud when you see the funny illustrations of Einstein surfing a gravitational wave and pizza floating through space!
