Summary
To commemorate the momentous 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin{u2019}s pioneering journey into space on 12th April 2011, a series of five books {u2013} to be published annually {u2013} will explore this half century, decade by decade, to discover how humanity{u2019}s knowledge of flying, working and living in space has changed. Each volume will focus not only upon the individual missions within {u2018}its{u2019} decade, but also upon the key challenges facing human space exploration at specific points within those 50 years: from the simple problems of breathing and eating in space to the challenges of venturing outside in a pressurised spacesuit and locomotion on the Moon. The first volume of this series will focus upon the 1960s, exploring each mission from April 1961 to April 1971 in depth: from the pioneering Vostok flights to the establishment of the first Salyut space station and from Alan Shepard{u2019}s modest sub-orbital {u2018}hop{u2019} into space to his triumphant arrival at the Moon{u2019}s Fra Mauro foothills almost a decade later
