This fascinating dictionary covers the exciting world of space exploration and every aspect of the technology involved. Containing over 2,000 entries it defines the jargon used in space exploration including such weird and wonderful terms as "cherry picker" and "burp firing." All the entries are fully cross-referenced for ease of use, and important entries, such as the entry on the Apollo project, are presented as detailed feature articles. The book also contains links to over 250 space-related websites, and a comprehensive chronology of space exploration, complete with photographs, illustrations, and diagrams.
This authoritative, comprehensive, and readable dictionary is essential reading for anyone with an interest in astronomy and space travel.
