The Space Age is a period encompassing the activities related to the Space Race, space exploration, space technology, and the cultural developments influenced by these events. The Space Age is generally considered to have begun with Sputnik 1 in 1957, continuing to the present day. The Space Age began with the development of several technologies that converged with the October 4, 1957 launch of Sputnik 1 by the Soviet Union.

Branley makes comprehensible the complicated tasks of the 1,000+ satellites currently in orbit.

Branley makes comprehensible the complicated tasks of the 1,000+ satellites currently in orbit. The ripple effects of space exploration include scientific contributions to meteorology, crops, and fisheries (satellites inform where water temperature is just right for tuna). Perfect glass can also be made in space. The near future will bring the Hubble Space Telescope, through which we'll see 15 billion years into the past-perhaps when the universe began! The book went to press late enough to mention the Challenger tragedy but not late enough to explore NASA's current safety/confidence crisis.

The early Sputnik satellites were not designed to withstand reentry into Earth’s atmosphere. Riding a tide of successes in space, the Soviet Union set out to achieve the next logical accomplishment: putting a man into orbit. Nonetheless, the Soviets undertook a series of experiments with animals aboard the orbiters to test the feasibility of manned space flight. One unlucky dog, Laika, became the first animal to travel into space, but she did not return alive. On April 12, 1961, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin circled Earth one time in a Vostok spacecraft before ejecting 23,000 feet above the planet and parachuting safely down.

This space shuttle was the second to orbit the earth They can carry astronauts and equipment into space, then land back on earth and be used again.

This space shuttle was the second to orbit the earth. It is also the space shuttle that was destroyed just seconds after takeoff. This was the first dog to go into space. the Sputnik II. This was the name of the Russian satellite which carried a dog into space. Alan B. Shepard, Jr. This man was the first American to go into space. They can carry astronauts and equipment into space, then land back on earth and be used again. This woman astronut was making her maiden voyage into space as America's first teacher in space, when she was killed, along with the rest of the crew aboard her spacecraft when it exploded and crashed.

Discusses the diverse types and functions of artificial satellites, traces the history of satellites, from Sputnik to the latest satellites launched from the Space Shuttle, and forecasts future trends in satellite design and operations
