Humanity has always looked to the stars, but it hasn't been until relatively recently that we have managed to travel into space. Space Exploration takes us on a journey from the first space pioneers and their work. From the First World War led technological advances in rocketry that formed the basis for the Space Age, to the increasing corporate interest in space this book details our steps into sace. It is viewed from our potential future in pace on Mars to be exact and considers how we will reach that point. Space Exploration concludes with our current advances and our immediate ambitions in space exploration. The future and its scientific possibilities are enthralling: who will be the first to step on Mars? Will matter/antimatter annihilations take us to the Kuiper Belt, or will it be ion propulsion? What is the Alcubierre Warp Drive? Will it take us to the stars?
Space Exploration is a great hardback book that both entertains and enlightens where we may be going with space exploration and is a thoroughly recommended read.
