50 Space Missions that Changed the World
by John A. Read
A fully illustrated collection of 50 milestone missions, including many firsts from Canada and the rest of the world.
Since the first spacecraft launched in 1957, there have been many incredible missions that have changed the world. The 50 featured in this collection include Voyager's Grand Tour, Apollo 8 (the first crewed mission to the Moon), the first woman in space and the first communication satellite that brought live television to the world. In the early days of space exploration, the focus was on military dominance. Today, most missions require the collaboration of several different countries and there is a broader range of research. This is an exciting time we are living in. Space history is unfolding right before our eyes!
