Superior course to gain understanding of human spaceflight from its beginning up to Skylab.

Would like to recommend that Chinese achievements in human spaceflight should also be made part of this course.

second part in 3 reviews

The course is a gem, but it lacks the second part, like the disasters and so on.

Good course, would be perfect with a second part (space disasters, apollo 13 in detail, the 80's and the Shuttle program)!

In order to make the topic more interesting there should be some popular type discussions and interaction like you might see on the youtube channel TMRO.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeQYemGBA3zkt2WY5dpRxswThose folks do a fantastic job presenting current events in space exploration.

Good Course This course although a storehouse of valuable information (lots of exclusive videos) about space exploration, tends to be a historical recollection at times.

space flight in 2 reviews

From early Congreve rockets with their almost total lack of guidance through Apollo-Soyuz and on to Mir and Skylab, each program, and each mission, is treated in terms of its goals and how it advanced human knowledge of technology and techniques of space flight.

I thought I had seen most videos of space flight but I got to see some rare clips of the soviet space program and learn some very interesting chapters of the race to conquer space that I was unaware of.There was an earlier review complaining of the links in the videos - but I got a message from the instructor that supplemental materials were initially missing and have now been added to the course.
