[i]My Life in Space: The Story Behind NASA's Amazing Pictures of the Planets[/i] by award winning author William B. Green presents a compilation of intimate and revealing anecdotes that take the reader deep behind the scenes of the famous space agency’s unmanned missions to reveal the methods, techniques, and personalities responsible for NASA’s rich and spectacular collection of pictures of the planets and beyond. With more than twenty years’ experience managing teams working on various unmanned space missions, author Green brings a rare, insider’s look into the inner-workings of one of the world’s most comprehensive efforts to document our solar system, its planets, moons, and the universe. With almost sixty illustrations, including dramatic photographs taken by NASA spacecraft over the past four decades, and photos taken in many of the operations areas supporting the historic space missions, My Life in Space promises surprises with every turn of the page.
