Technology Timelines: Spacecraft by Tom Jackson

From early rockets to missions to Mars, trace the evolution of technology's most adventurous topic - man's never-ending fascination with outer space. A host of famous spacecraft throughout history show how inventors and engineers have developed and improved on technology to make space exploration such an important part of human history. This book also dissects some major developments, such as the reusable rockets, pioneering animals that paved the way for humans to enter space and also explains the SPace Race, space stations and probes and missions to other planets to give a rounded picture of these amazing machines.

Technology Timelines is a series of six book aimed at upper KS2 and early KS3 readers, tracing the development of specific technologies through the ages.
