Waterstones Says

From the first moon walk to the future of space travel, the astronaut and author of Limitless delivers a fascinating and highly readable history of the remarkable individuals who have taken space exploration to where it is today, as well as shedding light on what's coming next.

Signed Edition - A Standard Edition is also available

Only 650 people in human history have left Earth. This is their story.

 
Join astronaut Tim Peake on a thrilling journey through the history of human space travel, and where we are headed to next.
 
From Yuri Gagarin to Neil Armstrong, from Valentina Tereshkova to Peggy Whitson, Peake traces the lives of the men and women who have forged the way. Full of exclusive new stories, and astonishing detail only an astronaut would know, the book conveys what space exploration is really like: the wondrous view of Earth, the surreal weightlessness, the extraordinary danger, the surprising humdrum, the humour, the newfound perspective, the years of training, the psychological pressures, the gruelling physical toll, the thrill of launch and the trepidation of re-entry. The book also examines the surprising, shocking and often poignant stories of astronauts back on earth, whose lives are forever changed as they readjust to terra firma.
 
Fifty years after an astronaut last walked on the moon, the journey is set to begin again. In 2025 the first woman will step on the lunar surface. What will separate these upcoming moonwalkers from the legendary Apollo crews? Does it still take a daring-do attitude, super-human fitness, intelligence, plus the 'Right-stuff' — a fabled grace under pressure? And how will astronauts travel even further — to Mars and beyond? Space: The Human Story reveals all.

“Amazing!!!”

This is the first book about space I’ve read, as I’ve always felt intimidated if the authors use scientific words etc. Tim’s book, was a delight to read, and easy to understand. He will explain terms but also uses... More

“Fascinating insight into humankind’s race to space”

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, Tim Peake writes fluently and with many humerous moments about the men and women, including himself who have ventured into the realms of space. I was to young to remember the early... More
