In 1992, Dr. Mae Jemison made history by spending eight days in Earth's orbit, making her the first black woman ever to visit space. Twenty years later, Dr. Jemison is pushing space travel forward again with her 100 Year Starship Foundation. In this new True Book series, readers will join Dr. Jemison as she guides them on a tour of the solar system.

The sun provides us with the light and energy we need to survive. It also serves as the center of our solar system, with its gravitational pull keeping the planets in orbit. But what exactly is the sun? This title explores how the sun was formed, what it is made of, and how its energy travels to Earth and the other planets of the solar system.
