15 FRENCH, FRANCIS & BURGESS, COLIN; CUNNINGHAM, WALTER (FOREWORD). In The Shadow Of The Moon: A Challenging Journey To Tranquility, 1965-1969.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London: 2007. 0803211287 / 9780803211285 First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Tells the story of the most exciting and challenging years in spaceflight, with two superpowers engaged in a titanic struggle to land one of their own people on the moon. While describing awe-inspiring technical achievements, the authors go beyond the missions and the competition of the space race to focus on the people who made it all possible. Their book explores the inspirations, ambitions, personalities, and experiences of the select few whose driving ambition was to fly to the moon. Drawing on interviews with astronauts, cosmonauts, their families, technicians, and scientists, as well as rarely seen Soviet and American government documents, the authors craft a remarkable story of the golden age of spaceflight as both an intimate human experience and a rollicking global adventure. From the Gemini flights to the Soyuz space program to the earliest Apollo missions, including the legendary first moon landing, their book draws a richly detailed picture of the space race as an endeavor equally endowed with personal meaning and political significance. Francis French is the former director of events for Sally Ride Science, and the current director of education at the San Diego Air & Space Museum. Colin Burgess is a former flight service director with Qantas Airways and the author of many books on spaceflight, including Fallen Astronauts: Heroes Who Died Reaching for the Moon. He is the coauthor with Francis French of Into That Silent Sea: Trailblazers of the Space Era, 1961-1965. A NASA astronaut from 1963 to 1971, Walter Cunningham was a crew member on the first manned Apollo flight.

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge: 2001. 052180633X / 9780521806336 First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The exploration of our solar system by spacecraft has been one of the greatest scientific achievements of the twentieth century. The mapping of other worlds has resulted from numerous space missions by NASA, extending over many years. The data from these plaetary missions have been synthesised by the US Geological Survey to produce detailed maps. Every planet, moon, or small body investigated in NASA missions is discussed and where appropriate mapped. Geological maps, reference maps, shaded relief maps, synthetic aperture rad mosaics and color photomosaics marvellously present the features of planets and the their satellites. This is truly a 'road map' of our Solar Systems. All maps are fully indexed. The gtazetteer lists the names of all features officially approved by the International Astonomical Union. This is the definitive reference atlas for planetary science.

20 HITT, DAVID; GARRIOTT, OWEN & KERWIN, JOE; HICKAM, HOMER (FOREWORD). Homesteading Space: The Skylab Story.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2008. Outward Odyssey: A People's History of Spaceflight Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
As the United States and the Soviet Union went from exploring space to living in it, a space station was conceived as the logical successor to the Apollo moon program. But between conception and execution there was the vastness of space itself, to say nothing of monumental technological challenges. Homesteading Space, by two of Skylab's own astronauts and a NASA journalist, tells the dramatic story of America's first space station from beginning to fiery end. Homesteading Space is much more than a story of technological and scientific success; it is also an absorbing, sometimes humorous, often inspiring account of the determined, hardworking individuals who shepherded the program through a near-disastrous launch, a heroic rescue, and an exhausting study of Comet Kohoutek, as well as the lab's ultimate descent into the Indian Ocean. Featuring the unpublished in-flight diary of astronaut Alan Bean, the book is replete with the personal recollections and experiences of the Skylab crew and those who worked with them in training, during the mission, and in bringing them safely home. David Hitt is a journalist, writer, and editor for NASA Educational Technology Services. Owen Garriott is a former NASA astronaut—and one of the first six scientist-astronauts selected in 1965. He was stationed on Skylab in 1973 and later flew STS-9, the first international Spacelab mission. Joe Kerwin is a former NASA astronaut—also one of the first scientist-astronauts selected in 1965. He flew on the first Skylab mission in 1973, was director of Space and Life Sciences at the Johnson Space Center, managed the Extravehicular Systems Project at Lockheed, and eventually became senior vice president of Wyle Laboratories. Alan Bean is the former spacecraft commander of Skylab 3 and became the fourth man to walk on the moon in 1969. Homer Hickam, a former NASA engineer, is the author of Rocket Boys and October Sky. "A worthy account of an important but largely forgotten program. . . . For those who would like to learn more about the achievement, Homesteading Space offers valuable personal recollections from those who were there."—Roger Launius, Air & Space "A well-told saga of Skylab from start to fiery fall."—Coalition for Space Exploration "The success of our nation's first space station did not come easily. The challenges were met with vision, courage, and competence. Those who personified these traits forcefully and honesty tell their stories here unfiltered by writers or press. The result is both historically significant and a great read."—Ed Gibson, Skylab III science pilot and author "Published here for the first time, [Alan] Bean's diary, added to voice transcripts of space walks, produces the you-are-there immediacy that buffs crave."—Gilbert Taylor, Booklist "A launch accident nearly doomed Skylab, America's first space station, before its mission could begin. This first-hand story of how American ingenuity, innovation, and gutsy risk-taking turned tragedy to triumph and produced pioneering science in orbit is an inspiration. Homesteading Space captures the never-give-up spirit of our first attempts to explore space—and stay there."—Tom Jones, veteran shuttle astronaut and author of Sky Walking: An Astronaut's Memoir "When people now spend half a year at a time aboard a continuously-occupied orbital outpost, it's hard to imagine when the first steps in that direction were being made. Homesteading Space provides a powerful and eye-popping narrative of what it took to begin that journey. This book tells its story with candor, context, and humor, and is a worthy addition to any space library—including, I hope soon, the one aboard today's International Space Station."—Jim Oberg, NASA Mission Control veteran, NBC News space consultant
