it's amazing how much of the basics Rey covers, especially toward the back of the book after the constellations. All in a clear, concise way.

Yeah, but did you catch that picture of a hypothetical astronoaut on the Moon? He's got this thick disk on his head to protect him from meteors! Now the last couple years, Leonid bits (not your largest space junk by any measure) were hitting the Moon with enough oomph to make flashes visible from earth! So our poor astronaut is lugging around 20 pounds of false security on his head--one hit and he's toast! Oh well, it was the fifties. The rest of the book is truly great, but I get a kick out of that picture!
