India's sky-rocketing Space story!
As we rocket into space on the back of several successful missions, this book examines India's glorious space trajectory starting from its first venture, the Aryabhata, to its most recent mission to the Moon, Chandrayaan-2. Presented through crisp stories and timelines accompanied by pictures from ISRO and other space agencies, this brilliantly designed, information-rich book will give you a complete update on India's unique place in the world of space exploration. It also looks at India's collaboration with space agencies such as NASA, ESA, Roscosmos and others on the world stage besides listing future projects that India will be launching in the coming years.
This book also includes space trivia, timeline of the Indian space programme and milestones of other spacefaring nations; information on observatories and telescopes; valuable tips on space careers and scholarships for aspiring astronauts, space scientists and explorers; and exciting activities by NASA such as building your own satellite and rocket and even making an edible asteroid!
