International Space Station Manual
An Insight into the History, Development, Collaboration, Production and Role of the Permanently Manned Earth-orbiting Complex

by David Baker

The International Space Station (ISS) is a permanently manned earth-orbiting complex where astronauts carry out research into a
wide range of scientific activities. It comprises modules built in the USA, Russia, Europe, Japan and Canada. Author David Baker
examines how the ISS was built, the logistics modules and freighters operated by its user nations, how the ISS works as an
integrated facility, life on board, what the ISS does, the research carried out and who benefits.

Dr. David Baker worked with NASA on the Gemini, Apollo and Shuttle programmes between 1965 and 1990. He has written more
than 80 books on spaceflight technology and is the author of the Haynes NASA Space Shuttle Manual.

If this volume is any near as good as his 'The Rocket' and 'Manned Spaceflight', then put me down for a copy.
