Ten Short Lessons

In Space Travel: Ten Short Lessons, Paul Parsons takes us on an exhilarating journey to examine the game-changing discoveries in the history of space exploration that have illuminated the darkest corners of our universe.

From the amazing technology that has enabled us to look beyond the clouds to the development of rockets and spacecraft during the twentieth century that led to missions to the moon and beyond, to the space tourism of the twenty-first century, this is a cutting-edge, expert-led guide for curious minds.

About the series: The Pocket Einstein series is a collection of essential pocket-sized guides for anyone looking to understand a little more about some of the most relevant science that affects us all in the twenty-first century. Broken down into ten simple lessons and written by leading experts in their field, the books reveal the ten most important takeaways from those areas of science we should all know more about.
