Space Stations: The Art, Science, and Reality of Working in Space" reveals the long and winding history of space stations throughout human history. Additionally, there are a variety of lesser-known pieces of history discussed in the book. For example, Walt Disney worked with German rocket scientist Wernher von Braunon the "Man in Space" television program that was tied to the "Tomorrowland" section of Disneyland, which he was building at the time.

Cromie's alternately mechanical and overdramatized style compares poorly to Cooper's suaver, more .

However, for readers whose interest in how it feels to open cans, exercise and undress in space has reasonable limits, Cromie's version is somewhat shorter, and it combines the housekeeping details with a little more technical description of Skylab and the various glitches that the three successive crews had to handle.

While the first space station in American culture was described in an 1869 work of fiction in the "Atlantic Monthly," in the twentieth century the idea proliferated through all cultures as the sine qua non enabling technology for space exploration

While the first space station in American culture was described in an 1869 work of fiction in the "Atlantic Monthly," in the twentieth century the idea proliferated through all cultures as the sine qua non enabling technology for space exploration. In the latter part of the 1960s many in the leadership both of NASA and the Soviet space program realized that creating a permanent infrastructure in space held the most hope in eventually developing the capability to leave Earth permanently.
