Much of what we know today about Earth is from images taken by cameras on powerful telescopes. Edwin Hubble changed our view of the universe. Working in an observatory, he found that there are other galaxies besides the Milky Way. He also showed that the universe is still growing. Lyman Spitzer, Jr. proposed placing telescopes in space, and in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope was launched. It sends us amazing images of the universe.
Our solar system is made up of the millions of objects in the sky above us, including the Sun, moon, stars, and planets. This book examines the four planets closest to the Sun, known as the rocky planets. All four planets are described with facts about their atmospheres, landscapes, orbits, and Fun Facts that give additional information about each of these rocky planets! This book will allow students to use observations of the Sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.
