The Moon is about a quarter of a million miles from Earth. Yet, scientists have been able to get satellites, shuttles, and other spacecraft into space and a few manned spacecraft to land on the Moon. How Does a Spacecraft Reach the Moon? reveals the science behind propulsion and the energy it takes to get large craft into space. Colorful photographs and illustrations, complemented by real-world examples, will ignite young readers' interest in space and the vehicles humans use to visit there.
