This book comprehensively covers the exploration of space from the very earliest rockets, through the experimental flights of the 1950s and 1960s and speculates over the futures of space travel. It covers the intense rivalry of the 'Space Race' between the fromer USSR and the USA, as well as the historic Apollo 11 flight which put a man on the Moon for the first time in history. It examines the problems surrounding long'term space travel and the dangers facing astronauts with a view to the possible future colonisation of Mars. Detailed diagrams help make the mechanics of space travel easy to understand. A complete glossary and index make this title an ideal educational text for both home and school. It fits into Key Stage 2 History and is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for Key Stage 2 pupils within the framework of the National Literacy Strategy. It also helps to achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
