***Destination:  Space

by Seymour Simon

Reviewed November 10, 2002.
HarperCollins Publishers, 2002.  32 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (J 520 SIM).

This book amazed me.  Books about space looked nothing like this when I was a child!  Each two-page spread has a photograph from the Hubble Space Telescope.  The pictures are mostly of stars and galaxies in various stages of creation or destruction.  There are pictures of an exploding star, and of several nebulas.  Who would have thought that such sights are out there?  Truly an amazing book.
