Amazon UK has a blurb on this book. The previous guides in the series have covered mainly military hardware (aircraft, armored vehicles, firearms, etc.) in a compact, well-presented format, so this should be worth checking out. It isn't yet shipping via Amazon UK, though, and HarperCollins is a UK publisher, so it may be a while before we see this in US bookstores.

Incidentally, the series is published in the US with the Smithsonian imprint as well.

Came across this very good small (19x12 cm) book. A must-have for unmanned spaceflight fans as 98% is on unmanned vehicles.

Each spacecraft gets one page with a good photo and text about manufacturer, launch, weight, orbit.

All times are CT (US)
