     Spaceflight historian David J. Shayler, FBIS, was born in England in 1955. His life long interest in space exploration began by drawing rockets aged 5 but it was not until the launch of Apollo 8 to the moon in December 1968 that the interest for human space exploration became a passion. His first articles were published by the British Interplanetary Society in the late 1970s and in 1982 he created Astro Info Service (www.astroinfoservice.co.uk) to focus his research efforts. His first book was published in 1987 and now has over 15 titles to his name including works on the American and Russian space programmes, the topics of space walking, women in space, and the human exploration of Mars. In 1989 he applied as a candidate for the UK Juno mission to the Soviet Mir space station and for over 20 years he has delivered space presentations and workshops to children and social groups across the UK. A co-founder and Chairman of the Midland Space Society he lives in the West Midland region of the UK and enjoys spending time with his partner Bel, Jenna a rather large white German shepherd and indulging in his love of cooking.
