Canada’s Fifty Years in Space

The COSPAR Anniversary

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Gordon Shepherd (CA), Agnes Kruchio (CA)

Detailing the last 50 years of the Canadian space science program, this extensive history explores everything from the aurora borealis studies of the late 1950s to the current Radarsat-1 and Canada’s involvement with the NASA Phoenix mission. The people behind the country’s spacecraft and programs and the long-overdue development of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) are thoroughly discussed as well as the parallel growth of the Canadian space program and the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR). Never-before-published information on the ISIS-II satellite is also included.
