Summary
  • "Over fifty years, NASA has compiled one of the most extraordinary archives of significant photography in history. It has faithfully documented every step of its remarkable mission: the manned and unmanned exploration of space, from the Moon to the ends of the universe. Written and edited by a team of experienced NASA staffers, and illustrated with many rare photographs, America in Space offers an unparalleled vision of half a century of endeavor and discovery."
  • "The story of America's Space Age is told with more than 400 carefully selected photographs. It begins in the 1950s with intrepid test pilots venturing ever faster and higher, and opens out into the now-legendary Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions of the 1960s, which made astronauts into national heroes. The Space Shuttle era shows us what everyday space travel might look like, while grand vistas of the universe expand our sense of wonder. The large format of the book captures both the human drama and the vast scale of NASA's projects. America in Space is a photographic record of the greatest adventure of our time."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
A visual history of NASA's many achievements in manned and unmanned space travel, written by a team of experienced NASA staffers and illustrated with more than 400 images, many of which are previously unpublished photographs from NASA archives. The story of America's Space Age begins in the 1950s with intrepid test pilots venturing ever faster and higher, and opens out into the now-legendary Mercury and Apollo missions of the 1960s that made astronauts into national heroes. The Space Shuttle era shows us what everyday space travel might look like, while grand vistas of the universe expand our sense of wonder. The large format of the book captures both the human drama and the vast scale of NASA's projects.--From publisher description
