Columbus In Space
Want to learn more about Europe’s laboratory in the sky? This book gives a complete history of Europe’s greatest contribution to the ISS, the Columbus Space Laboratory.
In 2008, Europe’s first space laboratory was sent to the International Space Station. Ten years later, the Columbus laboratory is still circling 400 km above our heads at 28,800 km/h, enabling scientists to conduct experiments in space on everything from cold plasma technology to enzymes that may slow the ageing process. To celebrate a decade of European science and technology in space, this stunning book tells the story of the Columbus laboratory from vision to mission, revealing everything from the daily operations that keep it humming, to the cutting-edge science that takes place inside. Richly illustrated with graphics and statistics of life and research in space as well as full-colour photos, Columbus in Space offers a never-seen-before glimpse into the laboratory at the forefront of humanity’s exploration of our Universe – Europe's space in space.
