NEW BOOK FROM STEPHEN WALKER

Stephen Walker has begun work on a new non-fiction book about the dramatic race to put the first human being in space in 1961. The book will be published in spring 2021 by Harper Collins in the US and UK, and in foreign language publications around the world, to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the epoch-making moment in history when Yuri Gagarin orbited our planet.

At the end of September, as part of his research, Stephen will be travelling to the Baikonur cosmodrome in the Kazakhstan desert to witness the launch of the next Soyuz manned mission to the International Space Station. The rocket will blast off from the same pad as Gagarin in April 1961.
