As Space X works to reduce the barriers of access to space and Virgin Galactic forges a path to commercial spaceflight for
the masses, we have begun to cross the realms of science fiction into the reality of humans viewing the cosmos with their
own eyes. Part of an internationally bestselling series, 30-Second Space Travel sees a team of expert astronomers hand-pick
the 50 most exciting topics and essential concepts in the field of space exploration and break down each subject into an easily
accessible summary that takes just half a minute to understand. Beginning with Galileo and the early telescope explorers of
the Renaissance, via the physics of orbital mechanics and the Apollo and Sputnik missions of the Space Race, and on to a future
of space tourism and planetary colonisation, this book will open up a whole universe of space travel and leave you eager to
research the field in more depth.
