"This volume had its origins in a conference held at the Headquarters of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in Washington, D.C. in April 2011. 1961/1981: Key Moments in Human Spaceflight commemorated the fiftieth anniversary of the first human spaceflights by the Soviet Union and the United States, and the thirtieth anniversary of the first Space Shuttle launch, which took place exactly twenty years after Yuri Gagarin's pioneering orbit on 12 April 1961. This book, however, does not present most of the papers that were given, nor are all the chapters based on papers read at the conference."--Introd.
