The Mammoth Book of Space Exploration and Disaster

In the words of those who trod the void and those at mission control, here are over 50 of the greatest true stories of suborbital, orbital and deep-space exploration. From Apollo 8's first view of a fractured, tortured landscape of craters on the 'dark side' of the Moon to the series of cliff-hanger crises aboard space station Mir, they include moments of extraordinary heroic achievement as well as episodes of terrible human cost. Among the astronauts and cosmonauts featured are John Glenn, Pavel Beyayev, Jim Lovell, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Valery Korzun, Vasily Tsibliyev and Michael Foale. Includes • First walk in space by Sergei Leonov and his traumatic return to Earth • Apollo 13's problem - the classic, nail-biting account of abandoning ship on the way to the Moon • Docking with the frozen, empty Salyut 7 space station that had drifted without power for eight months • Progress crashes into Mir - the astronauts survive death by a hair's breadth • Jerry Linenger's panic attack during a space walk, 'just out there dangling'.
