International Space Station: Architecture Beyond Earth is a new book written by Space Architect and former SATC member David Nixon. This book offers the first comprehensive account of the Station’s conception, design development and assembly in space. As a highly accessible chronicle of a complex piece of design and engineering, it is a book that will appeal to readers far beyond the space field.
