When Russia sent Sputnik 1 into space, the country launched not only a satellite but a new age. Many popular stories about American advancements during the space age have gotten some facts wrong and left out others altogether. Fact and Fiction of the Space Age dives into the myths about the history of NASA and space exploration and brings the truth to light. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
