    Chasing New Horizons: Inside the Epic First Mission to Pluto [E–pub New] I was really looking forward to this book after all the hype A great read but I started to get bored during the first five chapters which are all about the arguments between Alan Stern and the various organisations who were trying to cancel the project It just went on too long Only the last two or three chapters are worth reading in my opinion Still, the mission was an amazing achievement which has my utmost respect.

Free read ☆ Chasing New Horizons: Inside the Epic First Mission to Pluto Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Worlds unparalleled since NASA’s Voyager missions to Uranus and Neptune and nothing uite like it is planned to happen ever again  The photos that New Horizons sent back to Earth graced the front pages of newspapers on all seven continents and NASA’s website for the mission receivedthan two billion hits in the days surrounding the flyby At a time when so many think that our most historic achievements are in the past the most distant planetary exploration ever attempted not only succeeded in but made history and captured the world’s imagination How did this happen  Chasing New Horizon. This is story telling at it s best As they say You couldn t make it up the story of New Horizons is fascinating with many peaks and troughs across 20 years A great one if you are into space fascinated by how NASA does projects or just want a compelling yarnThe book doesn t just describe the events often individuals involved chip in in their own words with rememberances or reflections which really add a human and personal element There are exciting moments for sure but also tense ones emotionally distraught ones disarmingly vulnerable moments and eually bold and bullish moments you see examples of both outstanding and flawed leadership and clearly the challenges of when a long term project is tossed and turned by the movements of the world and governments the first prototype which could have been horizons was due to be presented on September 11 2001There is enough mentioned of the science that you get full appreciation of the mind boggling distances and complex analytical challenges involved also the dramas as computer programs are rewritten or the chance of hitting space rocks is explored However this is by no means a technical readout nor a geek out it is first and foremost about articulating the storyThe only criticisms I have are that like so many kindle books every image in the book is listed at the end rather than being in context with the story This does seem a bit odd when the outcomes of the flyby are described at the end and you have to read another chapter before actually seeing the photos describedLinked to this and what I also found odd is a lot is made of Pluto has a heart the heart shaped indent in it s surface however we never actually see a picture of it seems a bit of a weird ommissionBut overall a very very enjoyable book and for sure it ll give you the bug for space exploration too
