Creating the International Space Station

David M. Harland and John E. Catchpole

Creating the International Space Station"The greatest engineering project in the history of mankind"

Now, for the first time, here is a comprehensive and highly readable account of the creation of the International Space Station. Beginning with a review of the operations that led up to the construction of the ISS Skylab, Salyut, Mir and the Shuttle the authors then describe the collaboration between the great space nations that led to the design and building of the ISS. A flight-by-flight description of its orbital assembly conveys the magnitude of the task. Finally, there is a look ahead to the future of the ISS and the possibility of a dream coming true colonies in space.
