abstract
"In volume one, we explore the history of the U.S. space program, beginning with the U.S. response to the launch of Sputnik. We follow the program through the successes and failures of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, and their final culmination in the era of lunar exploration." -- container.
"In volume two, we start with the history of Skylab, America's first orbiting space station. We then go on to the era of deep space exploration with the Mariner, Viking, and Voyager planetary probes, and culminate in the creation and successful launch of America's space shuttle fleet. This volume also contains special bonus chapter on the official results of NASA's inquiry into the Challenger disaster." -- container.
