ABOUT THIS BOOK


This Preference Project™ is about spacecraft. We won’t be talking about the fictional Starship Enterprise from Star Trek or the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. It’s about the real spacecraft, the ones that have actually taken very real men and women into space. We are going to highlight some of the important points of humankind's journey into space. So, let's take a look at why 8 ships were built and some details about each one. Then we'll talk about some of their famous missions and the men and women who flew those missions. Finally, we’ll explore where the ships are now in case some of you are lucky enough to get to visit them. As we go, you will get a chance to pick your favorite spacecraft. When you finish the book, you will not only know which one is your favorite, you’ll also know why! You'll get to learn about the following spacecraft:


Vostok/Voskhod

Mercury

Gemini

Soyuz

Apollo

Space Shuttle

Shenzhou

SpaceShipOne

Full of fascinating information! We didn't use it as intended (pick your favorite) just read it for information. Definitely would be for older students, it is like a book. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
