From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8--This revised edition includes catastrophes that have occurred since the book's original release in 2001. The writing is interesting and succinct without leaving out any of the details. Brimming with clearly reproduced full-color and black-and-white photographs, the volume surveys the history of the United States and Russian space programs with an emphasis on the hazards, accidents, and disasters that astronauts have faced while exploring space. The most telling and interesting part of the discussion is the author's explanations of what really happened and why, what lessons were learned, and how they impacted future voyages. The explanation of what went wrong with the Columbia shuttle in February 2003, is particularly good. This fascinating read is packed with enough information for students beginning research on the events and people that populate the pages.--Linda Wadleigh, Oconee County Middle School, Watkinsville, GA

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. Space exploration represents one of the triumphs of the twentieth century, but its story would be incomplete without looking at the disasters that occurred along the way. Vogt discusses the perils of space flight and relates some of the harrowing escapes and full-fledged calamities that have occurred. Even readers well versed in NASA history may find new material here, as mishaps from the Soviet space program are related as well. Photographs, including many in color, appear on nearly every double-page spread. Despite the tales of adversity, Vogt encourages readers to remember the many successes in space exploration, commenting, "each failure takes us a stop closer to the stars." Carolyn Phelan
