A few of the main characters in Leap into Space include the sun, the moon, Earth, Saturn, Jupiter, brown dwarfs, comets, black holes, and asteroids. Young readers will: Learn about important people in the field of astronomy, from Galileo to Sally Ride; Learn about brown dwarfs, objects that have properties both of stars and planets; Study the sun and learn what makes the auroras seen from both poles of the earth; Read legends about the constellations like Ursa Major; find out why the Egyptians worshiped Ra, the Sun God; and discover why Polaris, the North Star, wasn't always the North Star.
