There is so much we still are still learning about outer space, and aerospace engineers are leading the way, helping to build the technology we use to guide the men and women who travel into the cosmos. It's a job that includes the study and use of math, physics, chemistry, biology, and even agriculture. Some aerospace engineers even decide to test their own work and become astronauts themselves. Through this book, readers learn what it takes to become part of this amazing world of STEM careers through science-curriculum supporting content and real-life photographs of scientists at work.
