The flight campaign for the American space shuttle began on April 12, 1981, with the launch of STS-1 from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, and ended on July 21, 2011, with wheels stop of STS-135. During the 30 years and 135 missions in between, the program experienced triumphs and tragedies, amazed the world with its orbital exploits, and was frequently the subject of admiration, condemnation, pride, and despair. This book provides a detailed overview of the history of winged spacecraft and the development of the vehicle we call the "space shuttle," and provides a technical description of the orbiter, main engines, external tank, and solid rocket boosters. Two pages are dedicated to each of the 135 missions flown by the American space shuttle, including technical data, crew names, and photos of each mission. The Challenger and Columbia accidents are discussed, along with a discussion of what NASA did to fix the flaws and continue flying. The book concludes by covering the retirement of the vehicle and the delivery of the four remaining orbiters to their final display sites.

Passages is a personal, yet universal story of a life in harmony with nature. When Linda, her husband David, and their two small boys, Sam and William, bought a yacht called Hornpipe and set sail for tropical waters, they cast off from all security. So began a nomadic adventure when they had to depend on their own resources, navigating by the sun and stars. This beautifully illustrated book presents a thrillingly honest, yet poetic reflection on the challenges of fulfilling a dream, as seen from a mother's perspective. Those ocean passages were a non stop roller coaster ride: "There were times when they plunged into the deepest trough of the wave and there were times when they rode, in exhilaration, the highest crest". Linda's literal and metaphorical passages braid together both past and present to reveal how her family's extraordinary voyages inspired their future accomplishments. "This story is for all explorers. The passages we weave through our lives find their truth in those we touch along the way: - Linda Trubridge

Embarking on a public toilet tour from London to San Francisco to Toronto, from pay potties to deserted alleyways, No Place To Go is a marriage of urbanism, social narrative, and pop culture that shows the ways public toilets just don't work. Peel back the layers on public bathrooms and it's clear many more people want for good access than have it. Public bathroom access is about cities, society, design, movement, and equity. The real question is: Why are public toilets so crappy?

These days getting away from it all also means escaping the mundane atmosphere of big resorts and cookie-cutter experiences. Whether you are searching for a truly unique getaway in a beautiful corner of the world or looking for inspiration when designing your own home, this book is bursting with stunning ideas and locales. The 40 hotels profiled have only a few rooms and you won't find them in traditional travel guides. The breathtaking photography captures the hotel's character, its architectural features, and the surrounding landscape. There are wilderness retreats such as Pumphouse Point in the middle of a Tasmanian lake and Mediterranean escapes such as Tainaron Blue, a stone tower in the Peloponnesian Islands. There are hidden gems in busy cities-Ottantotto Frienze in Florence, the Trunk House in Tokyo, and Los Angeles's Hotel Covell; edge-of- the-world experiences like Deplar Farm in Iceland and Sheldon Chalet in Alaska; and peaceful desert solitude at Amangiri in Utah and Namibia's Shipwreck Lodge. This volume also features architectural splendors such as the cedar and adobe huts of Punta Caliza in Isla Holbox, Mexico, and Free Spirit Spheres, a group of circular treehouses in a forest on Vancouver Island. A valuable resource for the discriminating traveler, as well as a source book for designers and architects, this collection of one-of-a-kind hotels offers relief to anyone overwhelmed by our busy and crowded world.
