Product Description:

Amid a century devastated by war space exploration was perhaps mankind's greatest achievement of the twentieth century. Yet remarkably in a world where most technology progresses constantly space exploration appears to have gone backwards. Man has not returned to the moon since 1972; the space shuttle programme has finished and not been replaced; much-vaunted promises of space tourism have not become realistic. In this remarkable book David Ashford looks back at the story of space exploration identifying the factors that were a driving force behind the eye-catching programmes of the cold war and showing how now new driving forces are needed. Using his own extensive experience as a practitioner and researcher of space exploration Ashford then outlines a new realistic roadmap for achieving the new space age soon and at an affordable cost. This accessible and readable book will appeal both to students and general readers giving a fascinating introduction to space exploration - and what matters most about it.
