Space odyssey : the first forty years of space exploration by Serge Brunier ( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In only forty years the exploration of space has become one of humanity's preeminent achievements. Space Odyssey follows the greatest moments of this saga and tells the tale of the four hundred men and women who have been into space. The journey begins with the pioneers of life in space, those first humans sent into Earth orbit and the legendary crews of the Apollo missions. It continues aboard the Mir space station, where we are invited to share the intimate life of its Russian, American and French inhabitants as they walk on the ceiling and sleep on the walls. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the adventure moves forward with the International Space Station. Filled with stunning photographs, many taken by the astronauts themselves, Space Odyssey portrays the hopes and dreams of those who have been directly involved in one of the greatest adventures of all time. Serge Brunier is chief editor of the journal Ciel et Espace, a photojournalist, and the author of many nonfiction books aimed at both specialists and the general public. His previous books include Majestic Universe (Cambridge, 1999) and Glorious Eclipses with Jean-Pierre Luminet (Cambridge, 2000)

Bringing together in one place all aspects of eclipses, and illustrated throughout, "Glorious Eclipses" covers the history of eclipses from ancient times, the celestial mechanics involved, their observation and scientific interest. Personal accounts are given of recent eclipses, up to and including the last total solar eclipse of the 20th-century: the one on August 11th 1999 that passed across Europe, Romania, Turkey and India. In addition, it contains much about forthcoming eclipses up to 2060, complete with NASA maps and data, making it the perfect resource for both novice and veteran eclipse-chasers."--BOOK JACKET

It starts by locating our planetary system in the universe, then describes the Sun and its planets, the large satellites, the asteroids and the comets. With photographs and information from the latest space missions, readers will discover the lunar plains scarred by asteroid impacts, the frozen deserts of Mars and Europa, the continuously erupting volcanoes of Io and the giant geysers of Triton; they will cross the rings of Saturn, plunge into the clouds of Venus and Titan, and survive the spectacular crash of the comet Shoemaker-Levy into Jupiter, to emerge with a greater appreciation of the hospitable planet we call home."--BOOK JACKET
