Space Probes: 50 Years of Exploration From Luna 1 To New
Philippe Seguela

James Oberg (Foreword)

In just 50 years, space exploration has advanced from the Luna
1, the first artificial object to overcome Earth's gravitational
field, to the New Horizons Mission, which will reach Pluto in
2015. Progress has been spectacular, and it bodes well for the
remarkable achievements to come.

Space Probes is the first complete and fully illustrated history
of the international space exploration program. Thoroughly up to
date, it is organized by destination and includes every space
probe launched by all countries active in space exploration --
the United States, the USSR/Russia, the European Union, Japan,
China and India. Each probe is described as to its objective,
its technology, the hurdles overcome, the successes and failures
of the mission, the information gained and the lessons learned.
Fascinating photographs and technical drawings give an inside
view of each mission, and special features focus on key
engineers and physicists and the fruits of their research.
