This volume, like the others, not only focuses upon the individual missions within the decade but also upon key challenges facing human space exploration at specific points within those years - from the problems of simply breathing and eating in space to the challenges of venturing outside in a pressurized spacesuit, the development of newer and better space toilets, and the difficulties of locomotion on the Moon. The Eighties was a time when traveling into space far more commonplace. Examining in detail the American and Soviet fronts, Ben Evans gives a comprehensive analysis of the varying fortunes of the U.S. space shuttle in the Eighties, including its early test flights and commercial flights, its problems, the 51L tragedy and its aftermath, and the resumption of operations with STS-26. The U.S. story ends with STS-37 in April 1991. In the Soviet sphere, two pivotal space station efforts - Salyut 7 and its succesor, Mir - are considered, showing how they were alike and different.

If you found "The Shack" interesting, you will find "The Poultice" even more so! Dr. Suttles offers a current Christian apologetic, an explanation of deeply held beliefs which come from a lifetime of cross cultural ministry and work in the field of appropriate technology. His perspective combines years of ministry from Haiti to French Guiana to Mexico to India and Romania with studies in cultural anthropology and industrial technology as well as theology. His heartfelt thoughts of his father, an old, Southern minister - builder are woven together in a lifetime fascination with the study of comparative religions and cultures. The resultant apologetic results in a unique, challenging series of answers to some of life's most difficult questions today. It challenges the church to re-examine its purpose for being and re-establish itself on a new covenant of grace and love. It poses a challenge to the political, educational, social, and physical sciences. "The Poultice" is a well thought out, revealing commentary on time and eternity to anyone who is searching for more understanding and a reason for our existence here on planet Earth. Dr. Suttles was born and raised in Elberton, Ga. His bi-vocational pastor-builder father instilled in him a love for technology and theology. A varied education in the fields of industrial technology, missiology, master of divinity and doctor of ministry prepared him for a life of cross cultural ministry planting churches and doing appropriate technology development work. He and his wife, Patsy, have worked around the world, from Haiti to French Guiana, to Mexico, India and Romania. He has taught on the college level and has been pastor of several churches. Currently he works for a construction management firm and enjoys his two children and two grandchildren in the Elberton area.
