About this book

The aim of the Space Exploration - 2007 is to provide an annual update on recent space launches, missions and results, to be published every year in September. The annual will cover space exploration from a variety of angles: looking back at past missions, reviewing those currently under way and looking to those planned for the future. The ten invited contributions each year will cover a variety of topics within these areas, to appeal to a wide readership.

The regular set features, which will appear every year, will include records noting satellite and rocket launches in the previous year and satellite recoveries; analysis of developments and emerging trends in space exploration; notes on records and main feats during the year; basic data on all launchers currently in operation; schedules of upcoming missions; anniversaries and landmarks.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Space Exploration 2007, includes articles about building the International Space Station, results of the exploration of Mars, intercepting comets and asteroids, the latest data from space missions to Jupiter’s moons, and more. With photographs on almost every page, the annual will interest space enthusiasts from teenagers through to professionals working in the worldwide space industry and journalists covering space issues."(EurekAlert!, October, 2006)

"At last a space book with a sense of humour! … here we have a book for space enthusiasts of all ages. The collection of contemporary articles provide a useful ‘end of year’ summary on the kind of subjects you would expect … . There are also useful charts and tables … . Space Exploration 2007 is a great Christmas gift and promises to be a classic in the making." (Clive Simpson, Spaceflight, Vol. 49, January, 2007)

"This is the first in what is going to become an annual publication covering current events in space events in space exploration. Its large format an extensive use of color make it both attractive and informative, and should appeal to space enthusiasts of all ages. … All chapters also include references for further reading, which is a nice touch." (Liftoff, Issue 238, 2007)

"It is clearly to design to appeal to the space enthusiast and most likely aimed at the Christmas market. … the material in the book is pitched at a teen- or adult-level readership. … the articles in the book are informative and generally well written, there are copious illustrations, and the price of the book is modest. I would say that this book is worth considering for the space junkie in your family." (Steve Bell, The Observatory, Vol. 27, 2008)
