From the first flight by Yuri Gagarin in 1961, via Neil Armstrong's first steps on the Moon in 1969, to the latest Mars missions, it has taken only forty years for the exploration of space to become one of humanity's greatest ever achievements. Space Odyssey follows through the great moments of this saga, telling the tale of the four hundred men and women who have been into space, some of whom have walked on the Moon. Filled with spectacular photographs. Translated into English from the French by Stephen Lyle. Includes an Index.
