Spacecraft Technology: The Early Years charts the early Space Age, spanning from the launch of Sputinik 1 in 1957 to the landing of men on the Moon. This period of technological development is one of the most important in the history of mankind - a period in which we learned how to leave our home planet and explore another, entirely separate, planetary body. This book is a celebration of the importance of that early technology in shaping our global culture, from the globalizing effect of the communications satellite to the cultural impact of images that place our planet in the context of a wider universe. It is aimed at all those with an interest in the history of space activity and the development of modern technology.Also available:Television: an international history of the formative years - ISBN 9780852969144A Scientist's War: The diary of Sir Clifford Paterson 1939-45 - ISBN 9780863412189The Institution of Engineering and Technology is one of the world's leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community.
