Description
Since the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957, hundreds of spacecraft—from communication satellites, earth-monitoring observatories, and space stations to lunar missions and interplanetary probes—have ventured beyond the atmosphere. This vividly illustrated book is a pictorial history of the most significant of these man-made objects, with images ranging from dramatic shuttle liftoffs and astronauts at work high above Earth to double-page, 20 x 12 1/2-inch star images by Hubble and other space telescopes, as well as renderings of future spacecraft to Mars and beyond.

"[Michael] Gorn's extensive narrative offers little-known insights into the space age.... As elegant and engaging as it is glorious ... one of the best illustrated space references you're likely to own."—BBC Focus Magazine
