Part of the 'Complete Idiot's Guide' series.
In response to the Soviet Union launching their first Sputnik on October 4, 1957, America countered with the creation of NASA - the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Since then, the concept of space exploration and interplanetary travel (which was previously the realm of science fiction writers) has gripped the imagination of the entire world.
From Apollo 13 to black holes, to satellites, space shuttles, asteroids, and solar systems, this book explores the past, present and future of space travel.
