From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <post.nul> Date: Mon, 27 Feb 2012 08:21:07 -0500 Archived: Mon, 27 Feb 2012 08:21:07 -0500 Subject: Space Probes: 50 Years of Exploration Source: Amazon.Com http://tinyurl.com/7vteglc September 22, 2011 Space Probes: 50 Years of Exploration From Luna 1 To New Horizons Philippe Seguela James Oberg (Foreword) http://www.jamesoberg.com/Space_Probes-FOREWORD.pdf 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.
