Scientific inquiry and experimentation have fueled human awareness and innovation across all fields of science and technology. This wide-ranging series explores environmental phenomena such as global warming, astronomical wonders such as black holes, and life-altering inventions such as lasers. Vivid, informative narrative and fully documented quotes enhance each volume in this series. All books include annotated bibliographies and a detailed index.
E.F. Space stations have been the mainstay and "work horses" of the international aerospace industry for the past three decades. They are highly valued as medical laboratories for learning about the effects of space on humans, astronomy platforms for studying distant stars and galaxies, observation posts for viewing and analyzing environmentally sensitive regions on Earth, and springboards for future human travel to a variety of planets within our solar system and possibly beyond. From the early and relatively simple Skylab, Salyut, and Mir to the modern International Space Station, these platforms have been home to many astronauts from many nations investigating scientific phenomena in a microgravity environment 250 miles in space whirling by at 17,000 miles per hour.
