From the Apollo missions that allowed humans to walk on the moon to space shuttle flights and the invaluable data gathered by robotic probes, space research has yielded a vast amount of information over the years. Such knowledge drives the quest for expanded scientific understanding of the universe as well as the development of technologies that support continued space research. This title examines the science behind space research in the following chapters: What Is Space Research? Probing the Universe; Living and Working in Space; Eyes on the Universe; and Space Research in the Future.
