Fascinating retro photographs that take you on a journey from the first brave space pioneers through to the incredible technological advances of today have been revealed in a new book.

Captivating photographs include Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin - the second man on the moon - walking on the lunar surface during the Apollo 11 mission on July 21, 1969. The photo was taken by Neil Armstrong, who was the first person to walk on the moon.

Other images show Jupiter's south pole, as seen by Nasa's Juno spacecraft from an altitude of 32,000 miles (52,000km), and a snap from Nasa's Cassini spacecraft of Saturn and its main rings.

The incredible pictures are part of a new book called 'Space Exploration' by Colorado-based writer and producer Carolyn Collins Petersen.

'Space Exploration' is published by Amberley Publishing and is available now from their website.
