Description
Explains the history and technology of space flight for general readers. Real-life b&w photos, many taken from space shuttles and man- made satellites, illustrate chapters on technological issues, such as how a space shuttle works and the different types of orbits satellites use, and historical issues including the Cold War race to the moon, past NASA projects, and budgetary constraints. Margin historical and scientific facts, examples of everyday uses of space flight technology, and detailed diagrams make the material readable. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
