A beautiful history – Spaceflight: The Complete Story from Sputnik to Curiosity

This is the best book on the history of space exploration if you want a book that has the essential milestones, beautiful pictures, and concise history.

There is even a 2-page writeup on the Chinese space programme. The Indian space programme is missing though.

This is a revised edition of an earlier edition published for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, which I was privileged to see on TV on 21st July 1969.
