Publisher Comments:

Space junkies and armchair astronauts are provided with comprehensive, handy references for a variety of space-related missions, vehicles, and concepts in this pocket-sized series. Compiled with the cooperation of NASA, each topic-specific reference features relevant statistics, photographs, and the stories behind each project. Books on manned missions include crew photographs, information on patches and equipment, and flight statistics such as time in space, distance traveled, and mission objectives. Photographs and statistics for launch vehicles, orbiters, probes, and experimental equipment are featured in each equipment-specific reference.

Flight data and images for all of the unmanned deep space probes, including Cassini, Deep Space One, Galileo, Huygens, NEAR, Pioneer 10 and 11, Stardust, and Voyager 1 and 2, are featured in this examination of astronomers' attempts to understand the outer reaches of the universe.
