The Home Planet


Written for the Association of Space Explorers and co-published with the Soviet agency Mir. The Home Planet conveys the grandeur of Earth and the mysteries of space through 150 stunning photographs - many never before published - selected from the entire Soviet and American archives. The accompanying narrative, poetic, deeply personal, often funny, often spiritual, is woven from interviews and articles and air-to-ground transmissions, and loosely follows the chronology of a space mission. Together, images and text portray, as no previous book has, the bond between Earth and its inhabitants, and the connectedness among the many people who share this planet. Beautiful full-color photographs and a list of astronauts and their missions. The words provided by each astronaut are published in their native language and also in English. Unpaginated, the photographs are instead numbered. The binding is black cloth with gray lettering. The jacket has light wear to the top right corner. Heavy and oversized, additional postage may be required. ; Folio - over 12 - 15" tall
