Arthur C. Clarke revisits the most famous future ever imagined, as two expeditions into space are inextricably tangled by human necessity and the immutable laws of physics.

    3001 the Final Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke

It began four million years ago with a gleaming black monolith - an inexplicable apparition that ignited the spark of human consciousness transforming ape into man.

    Have Sace Suit Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein

From the mind of the storyteller who has captured the imagination of readers from around the world and across generations comes this classic work of science fiction. First prize in the Skyway Soap slogan contest was an all-expenses-paid trip to the moon. The consolation prize was an authentic space suit, and when scientifically minded high school senior Kip Russell won it, he knew for certain he would use it one day to make a sojourn of his own to the stars.
