The Evening Star : Venus observed by Henry S. F Cooper( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In size, density, and composition, Venus is almost identical to Earth, yet its nature and history turn out to be as different as close relatives sometimes can be. In The Evening Star Henry S.F. Cooper, Jr., veteran science and space reporter for the New Yorker, tracks the Magellan spacecraft that has been mapping Venus from orbit since August 1990. In eloquent, vivid prose, Cooper introduces us to the engineers who have nursed the spacecraft's fragile electronics and the scientists who have used the spacecraft's data to assemble a picture of this strange new world. An evocative narrative of the people who do science and the challenges that confront them, The Evening Star is an illuminating portrait not only of Venus's character but of Earth's as well, and of the place of the two siblings in the family of planets

Thirteen by Henry S. F Cooper( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An?exciting? minute-by-minute account of the Apollo 13 flight based on mission control transcripts from Houston (The New York Times). On the evening of April 13, 1970, the three astronauts aboard Apollo 13 were just hours from the third lunar landing in history. But as they soared through space, two hundred thousand miles from earth, an explosion badly damaged their spacecraft. With compromised engines and failing life-support systems, the crew was in incomparably grave danger. Faced with below-freezing temperatures, a seriously ill crew member, and a dwindling water supply, a safe return seemed unlikely. Thirteen is the shocking, miraculous, and entirely true story of how the astronauts and ground crew guided Apollo 13 to a safe landing on earth. Expanding on dispatches written for the New Yorker, Henry S.F. Cooper Jr. brings readers unparalleled detail on the moment-by-moment developments of one of NASA's most dramatic missions
