Piers Bizony’s book Atom, the dramatic story of the rivalries and passions behind the discovery of quantum physics, was a tie-in for a BBC TV series.

An earlier book, The Rivers of Mars, a critically acclaimed analysis of the life on Mars debate, was shortlisted for the NASA/Eugene M. Emme Award for Astronautical Writing, whileInvisible Worlds explored the strange borderland where twenty-first century science meets art.

He now serves as a member of an Editorial Advisory Board overseeing the quality of science and technology publications linked to the BBC brand and is a regular contributor toEngineering and Technology (E&T) magazine, Flipside, Focus, andNew Scientist.

Noted space and science author Piers Bizony has put together a retrospective that covers all 134 space shuttle missions, including the final flight of the shuttle, which is scheduled for September 2010. In addition to covering every space shuttle mission, the book also covers the development and design of the space shuttle, as well as the technical specifications of the vehicleand details of its major assemblies and subassemblies. A full double-gatefold provides a large-scale technical drawing of the space shuttle"--
