520    The real-life techno-thriller from a bestselling author 
       and aviation expert that recaptures the historic moments 
       leading up to the launch of the space shuttle Columbia and
       the exciting story of her daring maiden flight. Using 
       interviews, NASA oral histories, and recently declassified
       material, Into the Black pieces together the dramatic 
       untold story of the Columbia mission and the brave people 
       who dedicated themselves to help the United States succeed
       in the age of space exploration. On April 12, 1981, NASA's
       Space Shuttle Columbia blasted off from Cape Canaveral. It
       was the most advanced, state-of-the-art flying machine 
       ever built, challenging the minds and imagination of 
       America's top engineers and pilots. Columbia was the 
       world's first real spaceship: a winged rocket plane, the 
       size of an airliner, and capable of flying to space and 
       back before preparing to fly again. On board were 
       moonwalker John Young and test pilot Bob Crippen. Less 
       than an hour after Young and Crippen's spectacular 
       departure from the Cape, all was not well. Tiles designed 
       to protect the ship from the blowtorch burn of re-entry 
       were missing from the heat shield. If the damage to 
       Columbia was too great, the astronauts wouldn't be able to
       return safely to earth. NASA turned to the National 
       Reconnaissance Office, a spy agency hidden deep inside the
       Pentagon whose very existence was classified. To help the 
       ship, the NRO would attempt something never done before. 
       Success would require skill, perfect timing, and luck. Set
       against the backdrop of the Cold War, Into the Black is a 
       thrilling race against time and the incredible true story 
       of the first space shuttle mission that celebrates our 
       passion for spaceflight.
