This flagship work charts a complete chronological log of orbital manned spaceflight. Included are the X-15 "astroflights" of the 1960s, and the two 1961 Mercury and Redstone missions which were non-orbital. There is an image depicting each manned spaceflight, and data boxes containing brief biographies of all the space travelers. The main text is a narrative of each mission, its highlights and accomplishments, including the strange facts and humorous stories connected to every mission. The resulting book is a handy reference to all manned spaceflights, the names of astronauts and cosmonauts who flew on each mission, their roles and accomplishments.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This hefty (829 pages!) volume is a chronicle of every human space mission launched from Yuri Gagarin's Vostok 1-in-April 1961 to the Soyuz TMA-9 flight to the ISS in September 2006 - 250 flights in all. It is thus an extremely useful quick-reference for any space enthusiast. ... Each entry includes the basic flight statistics, the names and flight history of the crews, a summary flight log, and a box giving the flight's key milestones. ... . A very useful volume!" (David Maclennan, Liftoff, Issue 242, 2007)
