The third edition of the critically acclaimed USA in Space covers both new missions and corrections to and expansions upon previous ones. The scope of space exploration history has been extended at both ends: On the history of rocket science, as well as the latest missions. Space Shuttle Mission STS-107 (2003), in which seven astronauts tragically lost their lives aboard the orbiter Columbia is covered. Plus there is candid discussion of the institutional conditions that contributed to the accident as well as consideration of the direction in which space exploration is headed. The latest essay covers the return to space, Space Shuttle Mission STS-114, in August of 2005
