Suddenly Tomorrow Came . . .
A History of the Johnson Space Center
By Henry C. Dethloff
Born in 1961 as the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, the home base for
NASA astronauts and mission control for human spaceflight was renamed the Lyndon
B. Johnson Space Center in 1973. Dramatic and comprehensive, this book traces the
center's role in the exciting story of U.S. human spaceflight-the Mercury,
Gemini, Apollo, Apollo-Soyuz, Skylab, and Space Shuttle programs through 1993. It
also takes a look at future programs, such as the International Space Station.
This is important reading for anyone interested in U.S. human spaceflight. 409
pages, illustrated, hardcover.
