This successor edition picks up the story where the first edition left off in 1997, and runs through to Mirís de-orbiting in March 2001, providing the definitive account of the Mir Space Station. The book reviews the origins of the Soviet space station programme, in particular the highly successful Salyuts 6 and 7, describes Mirís structure, environment, power supply and maneuvering systems, and provides a comprehensive account of how it was assembled and how it operated in orbit. Tells how the Soviet Union's experience with a succession of Salyut space stations led to the development of Mir, which was assembled in space, piece by piece, between 1982 and 1996 and became an international research laboratory whose technology went on to form the 'core modules' of the International Space Station.

About the author (2007)

Saturn, the a ~ringed planeta (TM), was first inspected close-up by NASAa (TM)s Pioneer 11 space probe in 1979. The two Voyager spacecraft followed up in 1980 and in 1981, but as a ~fly-bysa (TM) these craft had only a limited time to study the planet, its rings and its many moons. Now, after a seven-year interplanetary voyage, the Cassini-Huygens mission, which is a joint venture by NASA and Europe, is due to enter orbit around Saturn in July 2004 to make an in depth survey. In December it will release the Huygens probe, which will dive into the clouds of Saturna (TM)s largest and most enigmatic moon, Titan, and land on its surface, a month later.

The authora (TM)s highly successful first book on this topic, a ~MISSION TO SATURN a" Cassini and the Huygens probea (TM) presented a review of our state of knowledge and looked forward to the arrival of the new spacecraft. Published in September 2002, this book has sold to date 1,090 copies worldwide (726 USA, 364 ROW).
