Space is mind-boggling. Time is measured in billions of years, and distances in trillions of miles. Space Record Breakers takes all this wonder and packages it in digestible, factual form, focusing half on the natural wonders of space and half on the history (and future) of humankind's exploration.

What's the biggest known planet? The hottest star? The most intrepid astronaut? The first woman in space? The biggest volcano in the solar system?

Anne Rooney is a full-time author and book reviewer. She writes picture books, short novels, and nonfiction, and has written numerous math and science books for both children and adults. She lives in Cambridge, England.
