Space Conquest (Haynes H4573)

The Complete History Of Manned Spaceflight by Francis Dreer

Format: Hardback

For anyone interested in the sun, moon, planets and stars, and in humankind's efforts to understand their influence here on earth, this book is a treasure trove of information, charting the entire history of manned spaceflight.

When Sputnik 1 was launched in 1957 it signalled the beginning of a unique journey that would see a growth in our understanding of the solar system which until then had been a mystery. Advances in global communications meant that televised images of key moments in space missions - the tragedies as well as the triumphs - could be shared by millions around the world.

Most of Man's journeys into space have been within the orbit of the earth, but 24 astronauts, all American, visited the moon between 1969 and 1972. The Soviets, conceding the lunar race, concentrated on developing manned orbital space stations. More recently, budgetary constraints at NASA and the collapse of the Soviet Union have led to the emergence of other countries with their own space programmes.

Meticulously researched, stunningly illustrated with nearly 400 archive photographs and packed with human stories as well as technical data, Space Conquest considers every aspect of spaceflight, from the first rockets based on Second World War technology right up to the present day, with China's awakening and America's plans to use the moon as a springboard for Mars.
