A Side Note

Much the information contained within this unit study is provided by organizations based in the USA or about space exploration efforts in the USA. It’s where my familiarity lies as a writer based in the United States.

However, the author of “The Boy From Earth” is Australian. If you’d like to learn more about Australia’s space exploration efforts, their government agency website is a good place to start.
