Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Volumes in the Frontiers in Space set look at the history of human exploration beyond Earth’s atmosphere and the search for intelligent life in the universe. As a set, Frontiers in Space aims to improve science and math literacy by using space technology to introduce students to mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, and environmental science principles. These discussions of space technology also introduce twenty-first-century career options for today’s students. Each volume contains a standard, matching introduction to the set and then a volume-specific introduction. Human Spaceflight follows the evolution of space technology from the dawn of the space age to the present day. Chapters include “The Dream of Human Spaceflight,” “Living in Space,” “Space Walks and the Gemini Project,” “Moonwalks and the Apollo Project,” and “Space Shuttle.”  Chapters in each volume contain capsule biographies, sidebars that clarify important concepts, inquiry questions and answers, and recommended activities. Each volume concludes with a set chronology, a volume-specific glossary, further-reading resources (books and Web sites, compiled by subject), and an index. Black-and-white photographs, charts, and illustrations are also included, although color illustrative material would increase the marketability to the target audience. Students and browsers alike will find that these well-written and comprehensible titles provide thorough presentations of the specific concepts and the possibilities for the future. A high-priority purchase for high schools and for public libraries that serve populations needing materials on the topic. Grades 9-12. --Shauna Yusko
