Rocket Science!

You may have heard by now that we've launched a new book called Rocket Science, here on Kickstarter.

Unlike Epic Space Adventure and Mars Rover Rescue, Rocket Science is aimed at older kids (like in the 6-10 range). It's basically a "spacecraft manual for kids" by a real aerospace engineer. This is also a great opportunity to get copies of the first books at the best possible price in a bundle pack—meaning you could check multiple people off your Christmas shopping list at once.

Along with Rocket Science, we're offering tons of other perks, including signed copies, more stickers than ever, mission patches, wearable buttons, and a poster featuring all the space missions discussed in the book.

For the patches, we're going with something inspirational (probably "Go for Launch", like a real aerospace engineer would say), but due to popular demand through votes on Twitter, we decided to go a different direction with the wearable buttons.
