Seven thematic sections detail landmark events, technological advances, and the drama of the men, women, and machines that took us into space. Here are rocket launch vehicles and space stations, moon explorations and military satellites, the pioneering flights of Gagarin and Glenn, and more. Fact boxes and diagrams explain such concepts as attitude control, while two-page sections feature subjects from "walking" in space to Voyager's grand tour. Spaceflight includes more than 350 illustrations, photographs, and other artworks. Events that shaped the course of spaceflight are presented in an 8-page foldout illustrated timeline, an instant reference to the entire subject. The 40-page photo glossary offers concise explanations of technical and scientific terms, plus biographies of major figures.
