Learn about mankind's exploration of space with the help of some awfully cute girls who also happen to be spacecraft! This unique book depicts rockets, shuttles, and satellites as adorable girls, and the text (all in Japanese) takes you through the stages of this amazing aspect of history. The Saturn V, the Salyut 6, Hayabusa (landing with great determination on the asteroid 25143 Itokawa, and weeping tears of joy as she approaches Earth), communications satellites, space shuttles, early experiements in rocketry--they're all here! This wonderful book can be appreciated as a text of history in the making, and also as a collection of lovely girl illustrations. What are you waiting for? All color. Softcover with dust jacket. Text is in Japanese.
