Colin Burgess has had a strong interest in the history of space exploration since the age of 14 in 1962. He also has an interest in Australian military history, and particularly the Australian POW experience. His first few books – the first published in 1985 – reflected this latter interest, but in the 1990s he began writing increasingly more magazine articles and books on his principal interest, spaceflight. Mostly biographical, his books have filled an information niche that had previously never been explored in print. He has been writing books for Springer-Praxis since 2006 with his title “NASA’s Scientist-Astronauts.”

The majority of his research and writing is carried out at his home in Sydney, Australia. He does attend astronauts events overseas and conducts interviews with many space explorers relevant to the project he has at hand. Overall, he is author to over 26 titles, including four titles with Springer. He most recent work, “Selecting the Mercury Seven” was published in the fall of 2011.
