Space: 50 Years of Space Exploration : In October 1957 a metallic sphere about the size of a football bleeped its way into orbit. It was called Sputnik. From this modest beginning, the Space Age was born. "Space" celebrates the first half-century of space exploration, and looks for ways in which man will continue this adventure in the future. The book recalls an age when giant rockets were the last word in modernity, and silver-suited astronauts were household names. Now we are preparing for a historic return to the moon in the coming decade, and making serious plans to explore Mars.
