Reviews

This was, thankfully, not the heavy-going encyclopedic tome I had been expecting, but an easy-to-read, accessible story of space exploration.--Emily Baldwin"Astronomy Now" (04/01/2012) Ever since Sputnik made Earth orbit in 1957, mankind has been flinging tiny flecks of metal...farther and farther from home in an effort to get a grip on our solar system's secrets.... Philippe Seguela compiles them all, cataloging each unmanned mission that one or another earthbound nation has hurled toward a heavenly body..... Seguela also looks at spacecraft still in transit, including the Pluto-bound New Horizons. They may look like sci-fi space junk, but Seguela sees the majesty therein: Just like the pyramids and great cathedrals, solar-system space probes represent glorious monuments to human ingenuity.-- (11/14/2011)
