Houston, we have lift off!
All week long for World Space Week, we have been posting exclusive excerpts from Chris Impey and Holly Henry’s new book, Dreams of Other Worlds: The Amazing Story of Unmanned Space Exploration. Each day has included an excerpt from a different chapter(s) about a different unmanned spacecraft, along with a picture of the craft that doubles as an iPhone background!
Today is the last official day of World Space Week, so we’ll be finishing it out with an excerpt from Chapter 12, which talks about the curvature of space and how WMAP has helped us to interpret it.
We hope we took one small step for blogging about space, and one giant leap into a space adventure!
