70 Years of Triumph, Tragedy & MysteryBook - 2015
It may be 46 years since we landed on the moon, but our yearning for space travel and exploration has not abated. There may be no more moon landings (for now), but billions of dollars are still being spent to get humans off this earth and exploring outer space. Author Chris McLeod is fascinated by space travel and in Space Race he explores some of the most significant developments from the past few decades, as well as what's in store in the decades to come. Read about the Space Race between the Russians and the Americans. Remember the heartbreaking space shuttle disasters of both Challenger and Columbia. Learn about the robotic exploration of Mars--and the hope that one day people will walk on the Red Planet--and discover what space agencies across the world are planning for the future.
