SP-1321 How Columbus learnt to fly
 
12 November 2013
This book describes the 14-day 1E Mission in which the European Columbus module was delivered to the International Space Station by the Space Shuttle Atlantis.

The authors’ direct involvement as flight directors and flight operations engineers means that this mission is described vividly and in great detail. Important technical aspects of manned spaceflight, the ISS and the ground control system for a mission of this kind are included, along with interesting insider knowledge. It thus gives insights into the 1E Mission and work onboard the ISS, as well as a good understanding of the possibilities and difficulties of manned spaceflight.
