Fun Stuff about Space


RC Flying Saucer UFO with Launch Pad

Remote Control Flying Saucer

Control your very own UFO as it glides, hovers and flies! The Flying Saucer is a radio controlled flying disc that's ready to fly right out of the box. Just set it on the docking base, charge it for approximately 7 minutes, then stand back and watch it lift off, hover and fly up to 30 feet in the air like an alien spacecraft. The special proportional controls mean the more you press the trigger, the higher it flies. Just ease off the trigger to make the Flying Saucer descend. Designed for indoor use, this unique design is completely safe - the propeller stops instantly and automatically upon contact with any object.




Great Books on Space


A gift for kids who love space.

Where can you find Leo the lion?

How can you bring a constellation into your room?

What are the oldest stars?

How did the Milky Way Galaxy get its name?

Now you can explore the answers to these and other questions in Janice VanCleave’s Constellations for Every Kid. Find the constellations Draco, Libra, Hydra, Hercules, and many more from your own backyard. Make a star disk that can track star movements. Find out what a balloon can tell us about stars. With activities like making an astronomer’s flashlight and a shoebox planetarium, Janice VanCleave’s Constellations for Every Kid will have you reaching for the stars.

Each of the activities begins with a statement of purpose, followed by a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy-to-understand explanation. Every activity has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively at home or in the classroom.
