              This compelling story of exploration charts and celebrates humankind in space, from Sputnik's launch in 1957 through the Apollo Moon landings and the International Space Station to future missions to Mars and beyond. Spaceflight chronicles how, in the half-century that followed S...putnik, the world was revolutionized by space travel and exploration. The opening up of Earth's orbit to satellites led to a revolution in communications, monitoring of the environment, and materials science. For the human imagination, the impact has been even greater: the voyages of robotic space probes have transformed our view of the Solar System, while Earth-orbiting satellites and missions to the Moon have forever changed our view of ourselves. This book is a celebration of human ingenuity and imagination. From the work of pioneers like Wernher von Braun, Yuri Gagarin, and Neil Armstrong to the triumphs and tragedies that followed, it reveals the people, science, and technology that have propelled us into the Space Age.

              No country has made a greater contribution to the exploration of space than the United States, and this critically acclaimed book charts the complete history of the country's National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) from its earliest days to the present. Award-winning... historian Michael H. Gorn covers every US space mission ever undertaken, and in this fully revised edition, with a new foreword by Buzz Aldrin, brings the story up to date at a time when NASA finds itself experiencing dramatic change. Gorn relates the termination of the Shuttle programme, President Obama's initiative to launch a new heavy lift rocket, and the development of the Mars Science Laboratory, which successfully landed the rover Curiosity on the surface of the planet in 2012. He also reveals how the personalities involved, including astronauts, pilots, scientists, engineers and America's presidents, have shaped the course of space exploration as much as technological advances. Authoritative yet accessible, and packed with 500 images, this is the only book on NASA you'll ever need.
