Space Age Adventures: Over 100 Terrestrial Sites and Out of This World Stories
by Mike Bezemek
When people think about space travel, they usually look skyward. But much of spaceflight history happened down here on Earth. "Space Age Adventures" presents more than one hundred terrestrial sites across the United States related to space exploration, where enthusiasts can have their own space age adventures.

Before astronauts walked on the Moon, they trained at locations you can visit today—from NASA space centers and telescope observatories to impact craters and atomic testing grounds. Inside vast museum hangars, a visitor can walk beneath towering Saturn V rockets left over from the Apollo program or peer inside American and Soviet capsules. Elsewhere visitors can visit historic rocket pads, retired space shuttles, landed SpaceX boosters, and even watch scheduled launches. Mike Bezemek brings the artifacts and spacecraft to life with interwoven stories that collectively span the entire Space Age. These stories offer a deeper understanding of the adventures behind the famous images. The combination of terrestrial sites and true stories makes this book the perfect guide for having unique adventures and discovering one of the most dramatic eras in human exploration.
