Where We’ve Been… book

Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going, Why? by Dan Boardman and Aspen Mays is a collection of personal and public archives that draws connections between seemingly disparate events—the return of Halley’s Comet, the rite of passage of the American road trip, and the Teacher in Space program, which invited the first civilian to leave the Earth. On January 28th 1986, at the launch of Challenger Mission STS-51-L, these seemingly random events aligned, giving way to the parallel histories explored within this book. Double spiral binding both links and partitions these narratives.
