Review

"By the time you're finished assembling paper models of spacecraft from the book's meticulously die-cut blueprints, you'll be intimately familiar with many of the details of 20 different iconic spacecraft, as well as the broad arc of space exploration history and the basic principles of spaceflight. It's not exactly rocket science, but it's certainly a blast." ~SeedMagazine.com

"There are 64 pages filled with finely crafted die-cut paper models of the featured rockets, presented with clear instructions for assembly. The book also includes stunning archival photographs, colorful technical drawings and histories of 20 feats of aeronautic engineering drawn from half a century of space programs around the world." ~Parenthood.com

Someone at Barnes and Nobles was telling us about this book for his nephew. I purchased one and found it not only entertaining but very easy to spend a few hours making cool space stations. I liked it so much I bought two more. Kids like it so do adults!

Love this book. I have bought it numerous times. Sent as gifts to Space Flight lovers and gave as a gift for an introduction to Space Flight for some home schoolers. White glue works great and does not require any knives. Oh and the glow in the dark cover is very cool!!!!

This is a wonderful mini chronology of Space Exploration; the illustrations of how rockets and sattelites are built and how they work are amazing, and the pictures are interesting and well selected. The models are small, and can be frustrating if the modeler has little or no experience with paper models, but they build up into a really cool little history of space exploration from Sputnick to the International Space Station. They'd be perfect for a mobile or two. [...]

I bought this for a friend's birthday. She is an aerospace engineering student, pretty passionate about spacecraft. In short, she just loved it! I have not been through the content, so I did not (and probably could not) check the accuracy but it made a very fun gift.
