As Olivier de Goursac says, 'Space is a huge, well-filled void'. It is full of activity: since time began immemorial, numerous celestial bodies have circulated through it and today it is also marked by man's presence. Through our construction of ...
missiles, rockets and ever more sophisticated satellites, we continue to appropriate this new territory. In this book, Olivier de Goursac shares his passion for infinite space. Narrating the travel stories of those lucky enough to have voyaged through our galaxy, he introduces us to the first men on the moon and their 'moon buggy', and also to the incredible adventures of animal pioneers in our universe. Of course, these interplanetary journeys have only been made possible thanks to the untiring efforts, carried out over more than a century, of engineers and researchers in astronomy. Olivier de Goursac highlights the technical aspects of the space age and describes, in clear, precise terms, the many instruments and machines that have enabled - and which continue to enable - these voyages into space.
