Since the first space mission in 1957, there have been many pivotal missions that have made new discoveries and pushed the boundaries of our knowledge. 50 Space Missions that Changed the World revisits 50 milestone missions including Voyager's Grand Tour, Apollo 8 and the first crewed mission to orbit the Moon, Valentina Tereshkova (the first woman in space), the first weather satellite, the first communication satellite that brought live television to the world, and even spy satellites! This collection includes missions from Europe, Russia, China, India, the U.S., Canada and more.

JOHN A. READ's journey into astronomy began with a small and rickety telescope purchased at his local pharmacy. He found it fascinating to observe the Moon and Saturn with its rings using such meagre equipment. He decided to share these views with others. After writing his first book, 50 Things to See with a Telescope, John retired from a career in corporate finance. He is also the author of 50 Things to See on the Moon and co-author of 50 Animals that Have Been to Space. He is now a telescope operator at the Burke-Gaffney Observatory, a board member of the Halifax Centre of the royal Astronomical Society of Canada and is studying astrophysics at Saint Mary's University. He lives with his family in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
