Spaceships 2nd Edition: An Illustrated History of the Real and the Imagined

Spaceships: An Illustrated History of the Real and the Imagined explores how art and science have merged in the creation of real and fictional spaceships, from Mercury and Apollo spacecraft to Millennium Falcon and Starship Enterprise. This second edition is thoroughly updated to offer a complete history of spaceships. It builds off the original book with new information and developments in topics that include:

Virgin Orbit’s LauncherOne Paul Allen’s Stratolaunch Systems Bigelow Aerospace’s B330 inflatable space stations SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Future Mars exploration, moon landers, and interstellar ships New foreword from Bobak Ferdowsi, an American Flight engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory New foreword from Kathryn D. Sullivan, geologist and former NASA astronaut who was the first American woman to spacewalk

Award-winning author Ron Miller and new Smithsonian coauthors Matthew Shindell and Margaret Weitekamp take readers on a visual journey through the history of the spaceship, both in our collective imagination and in reality. Vivid illustrations trace spaceships through their conception, engineering, and building. The exquisitely detailed book charts the ubiquity of spaceships in the golden age of space travel (1950s and '60s) and their broad influence in popular art, television, film, and literature. Spaceships is a vibrant and visual book on the history of spaceships, past, present, and future.
