Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

"This carefully researched and written book develops a unique presentation of international space activity from a safety perspective. Shayler, an aeronautical historian, has made an immense effort in providing details on such topics as space rescue … . The attractive cover provides clear support for the title, and the figures and pictures create understandable views for related discussions. This book should be available in public libraries and offered as a resource for graduate space courses. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; general readers." (E. H. Dammier, Choice, Vol. 46 (11), July, 2009)
