Climb aboard a magical cardboard rocket with two young adventurers and experience a breathtaking, up-close look at each of our solar system's planets with guidance from a wise Astronomy Book. Great for young children ages 5-10 and their families!

With "Book," as their guide, the travelers seek to visit the Sun, the eight planets and Pluto. They land on Venus, Mars and Pluto, fly through the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, and view the other planets and the Sun from close vantage points. As they tour the solar system, "Book" relays interesting facts about each body, making sure his students learn something while on their wild ride.

This show features state-of-the-art animation and a soundtrack with spectacular effects created at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch. Secret of the Cardboard Rocket is perfect for the young and young at heart!
