Emphasizing the importance of the space programme to the scientific, social and cultural history of the last half of the 20th century, this brief history celebrates the almost unimaginable technological leap that the space programme represents, a feat of teamwork, innovation, dedication and mastery unprecedented in the history of mankind. Walsh's narrative begins just before the Mercury programme, covers the original seven astronauts, the Gemini and Apollo programmes, through Skylab and up to the space shuttle. The glories and emotion of space exploration are presented against the backdrop of the Cold War, the presidential administrations of Eisenhower, JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford and Carter, and other singificant events in US history. The positive accomplishments of the astronauts are put in context of an increasingly negative domestic situation in the '60s and '70s, the Bay of Pigs, civil rights, assassinations, growing involvement in and dissension about Vietnam, the Watergate scandal, and Nixon's resignation.

After many years of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication, the Apollo 11 mission made that dream a reality. Author Carl R. Green explores one of the most monumental achievements in human history.

Millions of Americans, including hundreds of thousand of schoolchildren, watched in horror as the Challenger shuttle capsule exploded on live television on January 28, 1986. Coupled with that awful image in Americans' memory is the face of President Ronald Regan addressing the public hours later with words that spoke to the nation's shock and mourning. Focusing on the text of Reagan's speech, author Mary Stuckey shows how President Reagan's reputation as "the Great Communicator" adds significance to our under-standing of his rhetoric on one of the most momentous occasions of his administration.
