Abstract:

Here is the most up-to-date history of man in space, researched by a NASA insider from astronaut interviews, diaries and speeches, and even top-secret documents from the former Soviet Union, with many revelations appearing in print for the very first time, . One Small Step shows space travel as it's never been seen before and those who read it will be both shocked at the dangers and failings of the space missions, and full of admiration for the courage of those who travelled into space. There are surprises in these pages even to those who closely follow space exploration. From Laika, Yuri Gagarin, Alan Shepard and John Glenn, to Columbia, the International Space Station and SpaceShipOne, via the Vostok, Soyuz, Gemini and Apollo missions and the moon landings, One Small Step is a unique first-hand history of space exploration.
