About the Author

Christopher Potter was publisher and managing director at the independent publishing house Fourth Estate. He is the author of You Are Here: A Portable History of the Universe. He divides his time between London and New York City.


For years, I've secretly longed for someone to take me by the hand and walk me through time and space--someone who would marvel with me at every strange thing we encountered and pepper his scientific discourse with lines of poetry. This is what Potter has done.--Dava Sobel
A sweeping chronology of human flight. Throughout, readers receive brief technical explanations, rich primary-source research, and intimate biographical details of many recognizable figures.
Despite covering familiar ground, Potter delivers an enthralling account of the golden age of manned space travel that emphasizes the transcendent experiences of everyone involved, and he makes a convincing case that America lost something vital when it ended.
Potter pens this excellent account of the people and events that brought about the first photographs of the earth taken from outer space. Readable and fascinating, recommended for anyone interested in the history of space exploration.
