Synopsis

The Story of the Exploration of Space by Penny Clarke

The Story of the Exploration of Space comprehensively covers the exploration of space from the very earliest rockets, through the experimental flights of the 1950s and 1960s and speculates over the future of space travel. It also covers the intense rivalry of the 'Space Race' between the former USSR and USA, as well as the historic Apollo 11 flight which put a man on the Moon for the first time in history. It examines the problems surrounding long-term space travel and the dangers facing astronauts with a view to the possible future colonisation of Mars. Its detailed diagrams help make the mechanics of space travel easy to understand. There is a complete glossary and index that makes this title an ideal educational text for both home and school.
