the project

This is my dream of NASA.

12 April 1981, just before noon on a fine spring day.

I was running back to my house because I was late. My heart thumped with the effort and I was excited and nervous, in case I missed the launch. I ran into the house and straight to the TV where grainy, analogue images showed the Space Shuttle Columbia soaring into a darkening blue sky, immense columns of orange flame from its rocket boosters pushing it beyond Earth’s atmosphere and into space.

I was 11 years old and it seemed to me that the whole world must be watching this. It was magic. And I was mesmerised.

I have been mesmerised by and loved space and space exploration ever since. This book is my expression of that love, a veneration of NASA and the objects it created that made space exploration possible.
