Klappentext: There have been many books about space-flight, but this is the first illustrated, step-by-step presentation of the subject. In a manner that combines scientific accuracy with artistic skill, it depicts the various stages in the progress of astronautics, from the launching of the first unmanned rockets to the final establishment o a lunar colony. The forty-five illustrations (eight in full colour) provide a dramatic survey of the problems and possibilities of space-flight, and are the work of R.A. Smith, who has studied the subject intensively for more than twenty years and has considerable practical experience in modern rocket design. He shows how, by the correct use of science and engineering skill, the Moon may become a valuable permanent community in its own right, marking the beginning in its own right, marking the beginning of an entirely new relation between Man und his universe. The descriptive text is by Arthur C. Clarke, well-known for his books and television programmes on space-travel. He has twice been chairman of the British Interplanetary Society and, like R.A. Smith, has served on the Society's council since 1937.

Former NASA Astronaut Harrison Schmitt advocates a private, investor-based approach to returning humans to the Moon—to extract Helium 3 for energy production, to use the Moon as a platform for science and manufacturing, and to establish permanent human colonies there in a kind of stepping stone community on the way to deeper space. With governments playing a supporting role—just as they have in the development of modern commercial aeronautics and agricultural production—Schmitt believes that a fundamentally private enterprise is the only type of organization capable of sustaining such an effort and, eventually, even making it pay off.

Man's exploration of space and its climax in the American moon landings have provided the world with iconic sounds and images of the late twentieth century. Travelling across millions of miles, these sounds and images have become lodged in the public conscious as the most powerful of collective memories. They speak both of breathtaking technological achievement and of the courage of the men, and woman, who risked their lives in striving to be more than human and to be more than just of this Earth. As John F. Kennedy said, "We choose to go to the Moon, not because it is easy but because it is hard." This is the first comprehensive exploration of the role played by film and television systems in enabling these feats of interplanetary exploration to be witnessed by audiences of hundreds of millions of people. Using material from the NASA archives, expert and enthusiast Michael Allen traces the parallel development and interdependency of space and media technologies during the Space Race -- of satellite surveillance and interplanetary probes, early Russian successes and the American missions that landed men on the moon. He also chronicles the part played by film and television in recording what was, and is, man's greatest leap: the exploration of outer space and other planets.

Join the world's most famous travelling reporter in his exciting adventures as he embarks on his most epic journey in the two-part story Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon, and sets out to rescue his friend the Professor in The Calculus Affair. Destination Moon Tintin and Captain Haddock are amazed to find that Professor Calculus is planning a top-secret project from the Sprodj Atomic Research Centre in Syldavia. And before our intrepid hero knows it, the next stop on this adventure is . . . space. Explorers on the Moon Following on from the events of Destination Moon, Tintin finds himself in a rocket on a collision course with the moon. And with Snowy the dog, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus and the Thompson twins aboard, things quickly spiral further and further out of control. The Calculus Affair Windows, mirrors and chandeliers are spontaneously shattering and Tintin is left flummoxed. After a shooting and a break-in, Tintin knows Calculus is in danger, but he has only one clue - an unusual packet of cigarettes. He has a mystery to solve. But can he do it before a terrible weapon falls into the wrong hands? Join the most iconic character in comics as he embarks on an extraordinary adventure spanning historical and political events, and thrilling mysteries. Still selling over 100,000 copies every year in the UK and having been adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011, The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm more than 80 years after they first found their way into publication. Since then an estimated 230 million copies have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th.
