A distress call from Europa! Captain Chips and his crew are trapped under the ice. The team needs to grab their gear, head for Jupiter's moon, and find a way to melt the ice to descend into Europa's subsurface ocean. Searching the depths, who knows what amazing things they'll discover?

Europa Excursion is the third book in the series, after Epic Space Adventure and Mars Rover Rescue. It picks up where the team left off on Mars, presenting science in a way that's easy to understand, combined with an exciting story line. Each character has a backstory, with a characteristic quote and favorite food.

Everyone's got a job to do!

This hardcover book edition of Europa Excursion features 56 pages of brand new beautiful full-color illustrations by professional artist Galen Frazer (see original space rap Youtube video here).

 Along with the deluxe sets, you also get the books autographed by author Andrew Rader (PhD). You can also get a Europa Excursion mission patch and coloring booklet, and every order comes with a secret bonus!

If you missed Epic Space Adventure and Mars Rover Rescue, you can still get them from this Kickstarter. Just order more than one book, and at the end of the campaign (when you put in your address), you'll have the opportunity to specify how many copies of each book you'd like. For example, if you order three books, you could get the whole trilogy (or two of one book, and one of another). You can also order and find out more about Epic Space Adventure and Mars Rover Rescue here along with other books and games.

If you're a teacher (or know any), you can get great deals on bulk packs, which can mix the three books. You can even arrange a 20 minutes Skype call about space exploration for your class!

Because science!

Europa Excursion will print & ship to arrive before Christmas*.

*Guaranteed arrival by Christmas in the US. For international orders, we'll try to get it to you by Christmas, but shipping times vary so we can't promise it will arrive on time in all cases.

 **Note that if you're an international backer (outside the USA), shipping rates are unfortunately somewhat expensive. However, you will get a better deal with two books than one because shipping rates are the same for each (based on weight). 

 ***Halloween book draw winners: backer numbers: 33, 84, 88, 135, 153.

 ***Thanksgiving book draw winners: backer numbers: 52, 78, 127, 140, 198, 208, 211, 249, 264, 315.
