I consider this book to be a reference book of the beginning of the manned space program in the U.S. and Russia, from the early 20th century visionaries and pioneers to the SkyLab missions. It does not cover the Shuttle program, though it does give information as to the beginning of the Shuttle program/5(10). This book comprehensively covers the history of space flight up to the s (it was first published in ). It extends from Oberth's and Goddard's early thoughts on space flight, through World War II and the military development of rocketry, then on through the Cold War and by: The History of Human Space Flight by author/historian Ted Spitzmiller sets the gold standard for history books about space flight. This book gives the reader a /5. The Smithsonian History of Space Exploration is a comprehensive history of international space exploration paired with photographs, illustrations, graphics, and sidebars on key scientific and technological developments, influential figures, and pioneering spacecraft.

History of Human Space Flight From the early days of Mercury to the lunar adventures of Apollo, from the innovation of the space shuttle to the technological advancements of the International Space Station, NASA has enjoyed several successful human space flight programs for more than four decades. The Right Stuff is a book by Tom Wolfe about the pilots engaged in U.S. postwar research with experimental rocket-powered, high-speed aircraft as well as documenting the stories of the first Project Mercury astronauts selected for the NASA space program. The Right Stuff is based on extensive research by Wolfe, who interviewed test pilots, the astronauts and their wives, among : Tom Wolfe. If there is any thesis-level fault in Mr. Spitzmiller’s text, it is within the concentration on the United States’ “public” space program, and neglecting the push by the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) in the human space flight program. Inside the book, there is one identified reference to the NRO, in supporting the first shuttle launch (p. ).
Ted Spitzmiller, retired from the Los Alamos National Laboratory, is a pilot and flight instructor. He is the author of many books, including the two-volume work Astronautics/5(4). The irst Americans to venture into space were drawn from a group of military pilots chosen because they had light-test experience and met certain physical require ments. Seven of those became astronauts in April Six of the seven lew Mercury missions (Deke Slayton was. removed from flight status due to a heart condition). This book comprehensively covers the history of space flight up to the s (it was first published in ). It extends from Oberth's and Goddard's early thoughts on space flight, through World War II and the military development of rocketry, then on through the Cold War and beyond.4/5.
