Description: Drawing on the peerless collections for the National Air and Space Museum - the most-visited museum in the world - this magnificent book brings us the story of the conquest of the skies. From the first hot-air balloon to the Wright brothers, the Apollo Moon landing, the Mars Pathfinder mission, and beyond. More than 400 photographs and illustrations, some commissioned especially for this volume, depict the milestones of aviation and spaceflight. The richly anecdotal text, by author Andrew Chaikin, takes us inside the struggles, the victories, and the discoveries - and makes the adventure of flight come alive. Hardcover.
