Large, brilliant photos will take kids on a tour of what we can see from Earth (sun, moon, meteors), the solar system, the universe, and other solar system neighbors such as asteroids and dwarf planets. Other chapters introduce kids to the world of space travel, spaceships, telescopes, and space stations. Throughout each chapter, "pop-up" facts and fact boxes provide additional information and supplement the main chapter text. 126 indexed pages, hardcover.

There is one sentence that mentions that stars last for billions of years, as well as a mention of scientists looking for planets that have the right conditions for life.
