More About the Author

Christopher Riley is a writer, broadcaster and film maker specialising in the history of science. He holds a doctorate from Imperial College and is a Visiting Professor of Science and Media at the University of Lincoln.

He has directed and produced on over one hundred programmes for the BBC - including their flagship science and technology strand 'Tomorrow's World' and the cult science show 'Rough Science'. He was the producer of the BBC's blockbuster drama documentary 'Space Odyssey - Voyage to the Planets', and conceived, produced and directed on the Sundance award winning feature documentary film 'In the Shadow of the Moon'. He was the producer of the restorated director's cut of NASA's original Apollo doc Moonwalk One, released on DVD for the 40th Anniversary of Apollo 11 in 2009.

He is the producer and director of the unique Yuri Gagarin 50th Anniversary film project First Orbit; which collaborated with ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli to film a new view of what Yuri Gagarin would have seen on his pioneering orbit of the Earth in 1961. The film is available on DVD and BluRay from Amazon, subtitled into 30 languages.

During the summer of 2011 he produced a film with Kevin Fong for BBC TWO on the final flight of NASA's Space Shuttle. In 2012 he produced a film about the Voyager missions for BBC FOUR, presented by Dallas Campbell, and directed a major biopic on Neil Armstrong for the BBC. His 2013 films include 'The Fantastic Mr Feynman' - a biography of the nobel prize winning physicist Richard Feynman, broadcast to celebrate what would have been his 95th birthday.

Chris is the author of more than thirty articles and books on astronomy and planetary science and regularly lectures on this and other topics. His book for Haynes on Apollo 11 - 'an owner's workshop manual', was published in June 2009 and made it into Amazon's top ten science books of the year list.

Chris wrote the chapter on Gagarin's visit to London in the 2011 British Council book 'Gagarin in Britain'.

He is a contributing author to Faber and Faber's 2012 book 'Big Questions from Little People', and has co-authored a chapter in the 2012 book International Cooperation for the Development of Space, from the Aerospace Technology Working Group, a non-profit Space Policy and Program Innovation Center.

His latest book for Haynes, on the Lunar Rover was published in late 2012.

Format: Paperback
This work serves as a rich repository of research and findings for those merely interested in space exploration and/or its development to those actively building the infrastructure to explore and to develop this frontier. While I am a contributing author and thus may have a bias, I had no idea of the expansive array of topics that would be covered in this volume until I viewed the work when published. Topics in this volume invite a transdisciplinary perspective and range across a myriad of disciplines, from Space Law, to astronaut training, and to other topics too numerous to list, but which can be accessed by viewing its table of contents. Readers will not be disappointed in this publication. This work is sure to be consulted over the years for its penetrating presentation of rigorous findings and perspectives.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book does an extraordinary job of demonstrating the extent to which space activity and space policy have become important to countries large and small around the world. While not sugar-coating the challenges of achieving partnership and synergy among countries with different goals and perspectives, it does leave you with the strong sense that countries share much in common as they try to realize the potential benefits on earth that are made possible by activities in space. I wrote a piece for this volume, but the best part about the book is what I have learned from the well written, carefully presented chapters contributed by others. Be prepared to come away with a sense that the benefits of cooperating for the development of space may be not only technical but political and social as well.
