My Thoughts

This book is packed with information about space and more.   It contains fabulous pictures and information that will keep your kids interested in learning more about space.   This book is divided into four main sections:

  • Mysterious Universe: Bottom line you will learn more about the universe, how it expands, and discover more about our solar system.
  • To Boldly Go: Space exploration is covered here.
  • The Appliance of Science: learn more about science like dark matter, gravity, stars, and more.
  • Teeny Tiny, Supersmall Stuff: atoms, neutrons, and all the small science things you can learn about.


Essentially it is a media reportage on the latest scientific discoveries and breakthroughs concerning space.   But the explanations are easy to understand and your kids will have a grasp about everything concerning space in no time with this book.  It is an excellent resource to have at home when you decide to expand your knowledge about space. 

Rocket Science for the Rest of Us is available for purchase at your favorite bookstore, even and
