Publications by the ASI for boys and girls

The three volumes of the series “Extraterrestrials. The Astronauts and the International Space Station (Extraterrestri. Gli Astronauti e la Stazione Spaziale Internazionale)”, “Earth! The world seen from Space (Terra! Il mondo visto dallo Spazio)” and “Astroparticles. A very dark matter (Astroparticelle. Una materia molto oscura)” have a light shape, but they are rigorous and rich in content. They were designed to capture the attention of young people through texts that are pleasant to read, they come with accurate information and are accompanied by drawings and caricatures of characters, events and real situations. Therefore, using and learning the theoretical concepts exposed in the book is simple for everyone.
