About this book

This book tells the remarkable story of space exploration from the early twentieth century to the present, with compelling coverage - including a wealth of illustrations - of every US space mission ever undertaken, including those of projects Mercury, Gemini and Apollo, and the development of the Space Shuttle. The exciting story is brought right up to the present by explaining the functions of NASA's two windows in space: the Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station.

Captures the spirit of NASA better than any other book I have seen in 40 years' experience within the space industry.
