Summary:
This is the first book to cover specifically the history of the space shuttle Discovery, the most storied orbiter in the fleet. A very straight-forward narrative history, and written with a minimum of technical jargon, it puts the reader on Discovery's flight deck during some of the most important missions of the Space Shuttle era from satellite retrieval, to deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope, to construction of the International Space Station, and the Return to Flight after two tragic losses.
