Mourir pour l'espace


The dramatic accident that recently destroyed the Columbia space shuttle inevitably revives the debate about the wisdom of manned space exploration.
After recalling that "nothing great is achieved unless the resources of intelligence are combined with those of courage", André Lebeau reminds us of the aim of manned space flights: the exploration by human beings of the solar system, planets and asteroids where human life may be possible.
He describes the means required, in particular for space travel, with their strengths and weaknesses.
