by Jen Green | Read by Ruth Sillers

Listeners are treated to an impressive scope of space information—from details about each planet to an overview of space exploration and the scientists who have contributed to our understanding of the solar system. While one could listen to this recording straight through, it also merits listening to chapter by chapter. Ruth Sillers is an unobtrusive narrator who lets the information speak for itself and is clearly unbiased in her presentation of the space race. Her melodious voice, leisurely pacing, and distinctive elocution make for easy listening. Given Sillers’s lively sense of wonder, the listener can’t help but be impressed by the vastness of the universe and our newfound knowledge of it. A.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
