Excellent chronological logbook of orbital manned spaceflight. It covers the first manned Vostok-1 (Yuri Gagarin - 1961) to Soyuz TMA-09 (Int Space Station expedition 14 - 2006). The authors also included a photo depicting each crew or astronaut/cosmonaut for the single man/woman and X-15 space flights. There's a lot of information for each mission such as; Launch and landing site, duration, callsign, scientific objectives, etc... For the STS missions, info is included on SRB set and orbiter SSME.

Finally a worthy successor to the 1986 log by Tim Furniss but I would have preferred a Hardcover edition for a book one regularly consults. Anyway a must have for spaceflight enthusiasts.

An amazing publication: covers Vostok-1 (Gagarin) to Soyuz TMA-9. Tons of info for each flight: International designation; launched; Launch site; Landed; Landing site; Launch vehicle (for the shuttle you have the tank number, the SRB set and the SSME engines); Duration; Callsign; Objective; Flight Crew; Flight Log and finally Milestones. Also three chapters cover respectively: Reaching the heavens (access/method; Space flight methods/launch systems); The Quest for Space; The orbital programmes (Vostok, Mercury, Apollo, Shuttle, Salyut, Shenzhou etc..).

An outstand reference works for anybody who is interested in the history of spaceflight!

A must have on one's bookshelf.

Just the book I've been looking for, for years
Lists every flight. Most books focus on the well known ones
This has got everything.
Brilliant. Brilliant!!
