Thanks for the interest Phil! We are waiting for the first printed draft. We are about one month behind in schedule, and I think it will be out in November.
Waiting for the drafts, I have just resumed working on part 3.

Part three will cover 1997 to the present... unless we split it futher of course!

Hi Philip,

Just noticed 'A Passion for Mars' in a local Barnes & Noble Bookseller's today. Perused the book; looks to be quite nicely done!

Yup - it's very VERY good - I actually met up with Andy Chaikin in June to have a chat about it ( but couldn't say anything until it was released ) hopefully there will be an interview on Planetary Radio in the not too distant future!

Came across a very good small (19x12 cm) book entitled:
Jane’s Space Recognition Guide – 2008
ISBN 978-0-00-723296-3
By Peter Bond.
Small softcover with 384 glossy pages listing every spacecraft ever launched.
A must-have for unmanned spaceflight fans as 98% is on unmanned vehicles.
Each spacecraft gets 1 page with a good photo and text about manufacturer, launch, weight, orbit, …
ISBN 978-0-00-723296-3
