Animals in Space : From Research Rockets to the Space Shuttle, Paperback / softback Book

Animals in Space : From Research Rockets to the Space Shuttle Paperback / softback

Part of the Space Exploration series



This book is as a detailed, but highly readable and balanced account of the history of animal space flights carried out by all nations, but principally the United States and the Soviet Union.

It explores the ways in which animal high-altitude and space flight research impacted on space flight biomedicine and technology, and how the results - both successful and disappointing - allowed human beings to then undertake that same hazardous journey with far greater understanding and confidence.

This complete and authoritative book will undoubtedly become the ultimate authority on animal space flights.
