Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the successful launch of the satellite Sputnik 1 in 1957 the race began to conquer the outer limits. The Americans and Russians tried to outdo the other in a sequence of almost unbelievable "firsts." The competition intensified in May 1961 when President Kennedy pledged that a US astronaut would land on the Moon and return safely to Earth by the end of the decade. Space: A History of Space Exploration in Photographs captures every detail of the incredible "space race" and the years that followed with 300 stunning images.

The book covers all the major events of the past five decades of human space exploration: the first spacewalks, the first woman in space, the Gemini program, the Russian Soyuz program, the Apollo missions, which culminated in Neil Armstrong becoming the first human to set foot on the Moon, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the many US-shuttle missions.

Synopsis:

A photographic survey of space exploration captures the major "firsts" of this extraordinary chapter in human history, from Sputnik I through landings on the Moon and Mars, in some three hundred dramatic images.
