Oxford Dictionary of Space Exploration

This authoritative, comprehensive and readable dictionary is essential reading for anyone with an interest in astronomy and space travel.

This fascinating dictionary covers the exciting world of space exploration and every aspect of the technology involved. Containing over 2,500 entries it defines the jargon used in space exploration including such weird and wonderful terms as 'cherry picker' and 'burp firing'. All the entries are fully cross-referenced for ease of use, and important entries, such as the entry on the Apollo project, are presented as detailed feature articles. In addition to the main entries and definitions, the book also contains links to over 250 space-related websites, and a comprehensive chronology of space exploration. The entries are supported by over 50 photographs, illustrations and diagrams.

Written by a team of experts, the entries have been edited by Dr E. Julius Dasch, former manager of the NASA National Space Grant Program.
