Can’t say when I became interested in space, I just don’t remember a time when I wasn’t.
I was born a bit late for the Space Race, but I’m old enough to remember when Apollo wasn’t a distant memory like it is today.
After reading countless books, watching documentaries and films, visiting museums etc. I decided I wanted to try and record some of the things I found most interesting on the subject, especially if they are aspects of spaceflight that don’t always get the spotlight.
Things tend to repeat in cycles and spaceflight is no exception. By learning as much as possible about past programmes we can see trends emerging – that’s my justification for indulging in some Space History anyway…
