Here is a great book for everyone on the BABB! I love it! It has EVERYTHING you would ever need to know about in spaceflight! Does anyone have it already? Comments from those who do? It is called The Complete Book of Spaceflight.

This is the book. I wrote the review. (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0471056499/qid=1050968776/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/104-2686313-0134341?v=glance&s=books&n=507846)

This is a page about the book with a link to a list of entries in it. (http://www.angelfire.com/on2/daviddarling/newbook3.html)

I HIGHLY endorse this book. It is a complete, as its name suggests, encyclopedia of spaceflight, from Jules Verne's cannon to the Luna and Voyager programs to Voshkhod and the Space Shuttle to Stardust, MUSES-C and Mars Express.[/i]

While it's not pertinent to the thread, you can find pretty much anything on Amazon.

Look like you wrote the review twice. ;)

Well, it's a long irrelevant story, but basically:
I wrote the review of the book. A few days later the author of the book, whom I had emailed to ask a question, said that my review had disappeared from the site, but was still available on the Canadian site. So I pasted that to the American site. All was fine for about two weeks, but then, "Poof!" My original, identical review reappeared, and now there are two copies of it.
