Description
Armchair astronauts can soar into outer space and join those who have journeyed far from Earth. Photographs from hundreds of U.S. and Russian space missions past and present vividly convey the remarkable experiences of traveling in a rocket ship -- the trials and dangers, excitement and glory, and even what it feels like to sleep and eat upside down and live in a weightless, yet strong, body. Plus: speculation on future trips to more distant planets and galaxies.

display_descriptionZero G, or the absence of gravity, is among the gretest challenges faced by explorers in space. This phenomenon of "weightlessness', first encountered by Yuri Gagarin when he orbited Earth in 1961. Has intrigued the public imagination ever since, and provided a wide range of practical problems for scientists to address.
