Mammoth Book of Space Exploration and Disasters by Richard Russell Lawrence
Book DescriptionIn the words of those who trod the void and others based at mission control, here are more than fifty of the greatest true stories of suborbital, orbital, and deep space exploration. From Apollo 8's first view of a tortured landscape of craters on the "dark side" of the Moon to a series of cliff-hanger crises aboard space station Mir, The Mammoth Book of Space Exploration and Disasters offers moments of extraordinary heroic achievement as well as episodes of terrible human cost. High points include the classic, nail-biting account of abandoning Apollo 13 on the way to the Moon and Jerry Linenger's panic attack during a space walk where he was "just out there dangling. "
