Time was, events such as 50 years of manned space flight would be celebrated with a coffee table book. Since the introduction of the iPad the coffee table book has become a masterpiece of interactivity.
Man In Space from Sky At Night Magazine is such a coffee table book. With a forward by Sir Patrick Moore, the only person to have met Neil Armstrong, Yuri Gagarin, and the Wright brothers, Man In Space uses all the features of the iPad to take you into space with Yuri Gagarin, to the moon with Neil Armstrong and into the Future with Richard Branson and SPACESHIPTWO
Man IN Space is THE purchase for anyone interested in space travel. It is $4.99 at the Apple App Store.
Now that I have you hooked on spaceflight why not join me on the last two shuttle missions. I..my picture anyway..will fly on the last flights of Endeavour and Atlantis. Your picture can join me by signing up at the NASA Face in Space website and once the flight has concluded you will receive a certificate suitable framing. What a keepsake to mark the end of an era in manned spaceflight.
