Editorial Reviews


“When future generations review the history of the twentieth century, they may well judge humanity's movement beyond the Earth, with both machines and people, as one of the most significant steps of the age. . . . A central part of this effort is the history of the Space Shuttle, which has now been flying for twenty years. The story of developing this unique vehicle is ably told by T. A. Heppenheimer. . . . This [volume] will be a major addition to the historical literature on the Space Shuttle and provide the foundation for significant follow-on research by other scholars.”—Roger D. Launius, Chief Historian, NASA

About the Author

T. A. Heppenheimer is the author of seven books including The Space Shuttle Decision, 1965-1972: History of the Space Shuttle, Volume 1 (Smithsonian Books, 2002) and Countdown: A History of the Space Program (1995). He is a freelance writer and has written cover stories for many magazines, including American Heritage, Popular Science, and Science Digest.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have two problems with this volume. The first is the size of the book. I minor point I admit, but shouldn't a two volume series be at least the same size. It looks silly on the bookshelf. The second problem is the quality of print, especially photographs and illustrations. The photographs appear grainy and the illustrations somewhat blurred. The actual content of Heppenheimer's work is, of course, superb.
