Read the compelling story behind America’s half-century space exploration. Through 318 images, see how the space program transformed Cape Canaveral from a traditional citrus production and tourist area into the world’s most influential high-tech space center in the nation. From its first launch of a two-stage rocket in 1950 to the latest Space Shuttle missions in 2010, Cape Canaveral has made more successful launches into orbit than any other site in the world. A great souvenir for both visitors and residents, this book is also a wonderful resource for space historians worldwide.
