This book is filled with detailed information and illustrations of spacecraft. The book begins with Sputnik and continues to present day. I really enjoyed reading about the Russian, European and Chinese craft as I am not familiar with them. The cross section sketches include a lot of details. Even though a lot of scientific detail is included I found the book easy to read. Enjoy this armchair travel to the Universe.
