9780007232963: Space Recognition Guide (Jane's)

An exciting new edition to the highly-regarded and perennially popular Jane's Recognition Guide series.

Presented in the same style as existing Jane's Recognition Guides, this new book contains a selection of over 300 satellites, spacecraft and launch vehicles (rockets), with information on purpose, operations, specifications, and a brief history, as well as summaries of the leading space agencies and launch sites, and a look into the future.

The entries (each with a colour picture) are split into:

Historic Missions (Sputnik, Apollo, Mir, Voyager etc.)
Historic Launchers / Space Organisations (e.g. NASA, ESA and JAXA)
Launchers/Current Spacecraft Programmes
Manned Spaceflight
Futures

This is a most comprehensive guide and a stunning tribute to the exploration of space.
