STAR TRUCK: UNTOLD HISTORY OF THE SPACE SHUTTLE!

STAR TRUCK: UNTOLD HISTORY OF THE SPACE SHUTTLE!

JOHN GETTER

IN HONOR OF THE FINAL SHUTTLE FLIGHT . . .

Author John Getter once again uses his experience as NASA’s reporter-of-choice for pool coverage, private pilot and personal friend to many of the astronauts to reveal the little-known stories behind the history of the space shuttle.

Join John as he takes the reader on a journey through the joys and frustrations of the human adventure of the space shuttle and exploration, from its inception during the first American’s walk on the moon to the last shuttle flights. Share the humor of the "cola wars" in space and the "toilet tours." Learn more about the shocking revelations and cover-ups that followed the Challenger and Columbia disasters. Experience the emotions as John describes the accidents and what the investigations revealed really happened to the crew as their shuttles were destroyed. And examine the dangerous and potentially devastating effects resulting from the decision to end the space shuttle program prematurely.

This e-book includes 30 color photographs from John's personal collection as well as NASA and Soviet archives.

A great follow-up to John's best-seller, "To The Moon: Untold Stories of the Space Race."
