Overview

Foreword by Norman R. Augustine In 1977, Voyager 1 and 2 journeyed to the outer planets, gathering information about Jupiter and Saturn, sending scientists on Earth their first close-up photographs of Uranus and Neptune, and collecting a series of images of the sun and its planets. Twenty years later, Voyager Tales presents a collection of interviews from a cross section of the professionals involved in all aspects of the mission. Voyager Tales: Personal Views of the Grand Tour provides insights into the development of a major research project from the personal perspectives of the people who helped design, build, and fly the two spacecraft. Readers will use this book as a case study of a project that not only was highly successful, operating on time and on budget, but far surpassed its initial goals.
