Foothold in the Heavens: The Seventies (Springer Praxis Books / Space Exploration) by Ben Evans Praxis | October 2010 | ISBN-10: 1441963413 | PDF | 548 pages | 41 MB http://www.amazon.com/Foothold-Heavens-Seventies-Springer-Exploration/dp/1441963413 Foothold in the Heavens, the second volume in the A History of Human Space Exploration series, focuses upon the 1970s, the decade in which humanity established real, longterm foothold in the heavens with the construction and operation of the first space stations. It marked a transitional phase between the heady, race-to-the-Moon days of the Sixties and efforts to make space travel more economical, more frequent and more routine. Space exploration in the Seventies, although dominated by Soviet achievement, saw the first efforts of mankind to really live and work in space, producing results of direct benefit to humans on Earth. The emphasis changed from the gung-ho, strap-it-on-and-go pioneers of the Sixties to the more practical exploitation of space for science, medicine, and technology. This book focuses on each mission launched between April 1971 and April 1981: from the launch of the worlds first space station to the end of operations of Salyut 6, and from the expanded, lengthy exploration of the Moon on Apollo 15 to the first flight of the Shuttle. April 12, 2011 is the 50th Anniversary of Yuri Gagarins pioneering journey into space. To commemorate this momentous achievement, Springer-Praxis is producing a mini-series of books that reveals how humanitys knowledge of flying, working, and living in space has grown in the last half century. Foothold in the Heavens focuses on the early 1970s, when we completed our first exploration of the Moon and established a real, long-term presence in orbit with the first space stations. It marked a transitional phrase between the heady days of the 1960s and efforts to make space travel more economical, more frequent and more routine in the later 1970s and 1980s. This book explores the intense competition and bitter rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union - with one side devoting its energies to lunar exploration, the other diverting its attention to near-Earth studies - which eventually brought a pair of Cold War foes away from the nuclear trigger to the negotiating table and opened a new era of cooperation in space.
