This table top book conveys the grandeur of earth and the mystery of space through 150 stunning photographs - many never published- selected from the entire Soviet and American Archives. Included are interviews, articles, and air-to-ground- transmissions, and it follows the loose chronology of a space mission.

I wrote the following review approximately eight years ago at Amazon.com: A beautiful glimpse of the "Blue Marble" of space., February 23, 1998 When I purchased this book about ten years ago I decided I wanted to be "buried" in space. This book is full of photographs of Earth--our Home Planet--capturing the essence of the words "Pictures are worth a thousand words." This book is analogous to going out alone, in the middle of nowhere, staring up at the clear starry night sky and attempting to answer that time immortal question, "Why". ( )

A striking volume combining photographs taken from space with personal narratives by Russian and American astronauts.
