This series looks at the amazing world of space and space travel. We examine our close neighbours in space, and also the outer planets and beyond. The books will be illustrated with fantastic NASA photographs and artist's impressions. In this book we look at the origins of the Earth and our closest neighbour in space - what they are made of and how they were formed. We examine Earth as a planet in the Solar System, its geology and its inhabitants. The history of lunar exploration and the prospects of humans living in the Moon are also covered. Amazing Fact boxes contain interesting snippets of information about the Earth and Moon.
