Write The First Customer Review

Once it was established that people could safely travel to space and back, scientists began thinking of how people could live in space. In 1973, Skylab, the first "space hotel" was launched. In simple but lively language, the book tells the story of Skylab's 251-day stay in orbit, the triumphs and tribulations of its crew, and the space station's eventual demise. The text also explains how Skylab led to today's sophisticated International Space Station.
