Voyages of Discovery: The Missions of the Space Shuttle Discovery
by Robert Adamcik
Voyages of Discovery is a very straight forward narrative history of the most storied orbiter in the Space Shuttle fleet.

Written with a minimum of technical jargon, it puts the reader on Discovery’s flight deck during some of the most important missions of the Space Shuttle era from satellite retrieval, to deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope, to construction of the International Space Station, and the Return to Flight after two tragic losses.

About the Author

Mr. Robert A. Adamcik was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and graduated with a degree in History from The Ohio State University in 1989. Upon graduation, he was commissioned an Ensign in the United States Navy and served for 20 years as a Surface Warfare Officer, serving on six ships during the course of Operations Desert Storm, Southern Watch, Stabilise, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Retiring as a Lieutenant Commander in 2009, Mr. Adamcik combined his love for space flight, ships, and history into Voyages of Discovery. He resides in Norfolk, Virginia with his wife Kate and their several dogs and cats. This is his first book.

Some here may better recognize the author by his cS username: NavySpaceFan...

That would be great Tim, but right now there are no plans for signings. As soon as they are planned, I'll announce them here.
