Description - Space Exploration: A History in 100 Objects by Sten Odenwald

This eclectic pop history of space exploration, by scientist-educator Sten Odenwald at NASA, examines 100 objects - all stunningly photographed - and their effect on what we know and how we think about space.

Whimsical and uniquely clarifying, SPACE EXPLORATION: A HISTORY IN 100 OBJECTS covers the iconic, from Sputnik to Skylab, as well as the lesser-known but utterly important:

*The ancient Greek Antikythera mechanism, the first known analog computer, which predicted astronomical movement.

*Luna 3, the first satellite to glimpse the far side of the moon. The O-ring; the humble, rubber part that doomed the Space Shuttle Challenger.

*Syncom 2, the first geosynchronous satellite, which made international TV possible.

*The V-2 rocket, the first artificial object to cross the threshold of space - and many more!
