Summary

A history of man's exploration of space.

Take an awe-inspiring journey through space history! Blast off with the first rockets, walk on the Moon with Neil Armstrong in 1969, and float around the International Space Station.

It's not just history, though - more people are exploring space now than ever before. Find out what they're doing, where you can book yourself a space holiday, and how scientists plan to live on Mars.
