About the Book
We’re back with an all new issue of RocketSTEM magazine. In this issue we take you around the solar system for 100 pages of discovery. Even as data continues to stream back from New Horizons’ encounter with Pluto last year, scientists are being surprised by the results from their analysis. Meanwhile, Juno has arrived at Jupiter and is beginning to peel away the mysteries of the giant planet. NASA is about to launch a spacecraft to rendezvous with an asteroid, take a sample of the surface, and return it to Earth. But the space agency is not the only one eyeing asteroids, as two commercial companies are developing spacecraft in the hopes of one day mining asteroid for water and other resources. Whether you’ve ever never been to Florida’s Space Coast, we’ve got an up close look at both the KSC Visitor Complex and the Air Force Space and Missile History Center. All that and more, in this issue of RocketSTEM.
