Since ancient times, men and women have looked up into the sky, wondered at what they saw, and dreamed of traveling to the moon and the planets. That's why the latest book in the acclaimed History News series opens more than 2,000 years ago in ancient Greece. That's why, as well as reporting on the Russian and American space race in this century, the News goes back in time to profile the coloful characters who risked ridicule, and sometimes their lives, to explore controversial ideas about space. From Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler to the first canine cosmonaut, from Sir Isaac Newton and Halley's Comet to the Hubble Space Telescope, THE HISTORY NEWS: IN SPACE has the scoop on the exciting events and scientific advancements that have drawn human kind--in small steps and giant leaps--into the great beyond.
