From the Inside Flap
Voyages of Discovery is a very straight forward narrative history of the most storied orbiter in the Space Shuttle fleet.
Written with a minimum of technical jargon, it puts the reader on Discovery's flight deck during some of the most important missions of the Space Shuttle era from satellite retrieval, to deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope, to construction of the International Space Station, and the Return to Flight after two tragic losses.
