Out of stock



PHILIP’S ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO SPACE is a stimulating guide detailing recent developments in space exploration written by SPA Council Member, Paul Sutherland. You are taken on a beautifully illustrated and informative journey – from the earliest beginnings of rockets and artificial satellites, through the first manned space missions, and on to the latest space probes venturing out intro the farthest reaches of the Solar System and the observatories in space that are delving deeper into the origins of the Universe. Paul describes the early attempts to build rockets in order to propel artificial satellites into Earth orbit for the first time, and examines the difficulties that were overcome in order to launch humans into orbit and on to the Moon. In time, these advances in technology led to the construction and operation of the International Space Station. Hardcover-192 pages
