Until this century, we could only observe space from Earth, but in 1957, the first man-made satellite was launched. Now, we explore other planets with robotic vehicles and astronauts live in a space station. Scientists also scan the heavens using powerful telescopes to learn about planets, comets, asteroids, nebulas, stars and other galaxies. To learn more about space exploration, use the direct links on The Times Launch Point Web site: http://www.latimes.

What kind of book should go with you to the beach? A cheap book, first of all, one you can afford to see sun-bleached, sand-scratched , grease-stained and maybe lost altogether. A lightweight book, second, and that in two senses: a book that won't weigh the tote down and one that won't turn pleasure into civic or intellectual duty.
