Product Details

Praise

U.S. Space Gear is an excellent primer on the history of the first flying (pressure) suits; early (and continuing) efforts to better understand human physiology at various altitudes and pressures; and space suit heritage for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Shuttle programs. (Planetarian)

A fascinating study of spacesuits, the book provides a wealth of detail on an . . . amazingly complex subject. (Tampa Tribune-Times)

To watch a well-dressed astronaut somersaulting in space is to see twentieth-century technology at its peak. . . . [Lillian D. Kozloski] ably chronicles the evolution of design and problem solving. (Sciences)

Lillian Kozloski has put together a pictorial history of American spacesuit evolution, from the early days of high-altitude flight through the era of the space shuttle. . . . Space buffs will find this book both entertaining and informative. (Astronomy)
