Disasters in space exploration by Gregory Vogt( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Space exploration represents one of the triumphs of the twentieth century, but its story would be incomplete without looking at the disasters that occurred along the way. Vogt discusses the perils of space flight and relates some of the harrowing escapes and full-fledged calamities that have occurred. Even readers well-versed in NASA history may find new material here, as mishaps from the Soviet space program are related as well. Photographs, including many in color, appear on nearly every double-page spread. Despite the tales of adversity, Vogt encourages readers to remember the many successes in space exploration, commenting, "each failure takes us a stop closer to the stars."--Booklist
