Constellation: Moon, Mars, and Beyond
Item #: BookPocketConstellation


Project Constellation is NASA's initiative to develop a replacement for the aging Space Shuttle. It's main goal is to provide spacecraft for returning to the Moon by the year 2020. This Pocket Space Guide, #9 in the series, gives the background information on how the program was formed and what it is destined to accomplish. Details are given for all of the elements of the Project Constellation, from the Lunar Precursor Robotic Program to the Orion spacecraft, Ares launch vehicles, and the Lunar Surface Access Module. Project Constellation is realizing President Bush's "Vision" for space and this book chronicles the progress and outlines the plans for tomorrow. Author Bio: Tim McElyea is a native of Huntsville Alabama with a record of achievement in fine art prints, drawings, sculpture and computer animations. In 1995 he founded Media Fusion, Inc., a studio providing state-of-the-art communications media, particularly full-color graphics and computer animations. Tim and Media Fusion have a rich relationship with NASA, providing high profile imagery and media which NASA uses to communicate the future of space transportation. Features and Reviews: Tim McElyea has done a great job at revealing the opening shots of Project Constellation and the Orion program. This book is a must for people that are just coming aboard the project and for those that want to know where the governments money is going on the Space Shuttle's replacement. It highly utilizes computer illustrations to show the next step in America's long road to the Moon and Mars. Let there be no mistake here- this is THE first book on the subject, and it will be changed and modified over the next few years as this program shapes up. Writer McElyea even goes over the possible changes to the program like the use of Ares IV booster instead. His illustrations show the breakdowns of the launchers and spacecraft. He has done a wonderful job at showing how the Orion Spacecraft, lunar lander, Ares I and V rockets will work. Not too technical, not too simplistic. I heartily recommend this book for all ages. It will be the book in the back pocket for those who are in school now but will someday be riding these mighty vehicles to the Moon and Mars. - J. Busby
