Summary
Alan Shepard, a "man in a can," began America's journey of human space travel when he flew into space, -alone in his capsule. After the solo Mercury missions, two-person Gemini and three-person Apollo vehicles paved America's way to the Moon. Now, astronauts orbit Earth for weeks at a time in a reusable space shuttle. From temporary Earth-orbiting capsules to reusable space shuttles and permanent orbiting space stations, author Michael D. Cole captures the excitement of NASA's space vehicles.
