Description

Significantly illustrated throughout this nearly 300-page book, the graphic images and people showcase the many firsts and proud moments that the United States has lead the world in space exploration. Over three decades, this flagship program has become part of the fabric of America's history. It has helped us improve communications on Earth and to understand our home planet better. It has set scientific satellites like Magellan and Ullyses speeding on their missions into the solar system and launched Hubble and Chandra to explore the universe.
