“NASA’s Innovative Advanced Projects grant program funds individuals developing unique and daring space technologies, and the Out of This World series introduces readers to some of these scientists, providing engaging biographical profiles and descriptions of their work.”

“The books follow a similar format, with topics presented in two-page spreads filled with vivid fonts, quotes, and attention-getting full-colour photos.”

“Each volume features brief paragraphs and accessible language, ample technical background, biographical details, and pop-culture references (Star Trek, Lost in Space, The Martian), plus the cutting-edge technology should capture and keep the attention of readers.”
