The Encyclopedia Astronautica is a reference web site on space travel. A comprehensive catalog of vehicles, technology, astronauts, and flights, it includes information from most countries that have had an active rocket research program, from Robert Goddard to the NASA Space shuttle to the Soviet Shuttle Buran.

It is maintained by space enthusiast and author Mark Wade.[2] He has been collecting such information for most of his life.

On July 12, 2011, a message appeared on the website stating that its content had been taken down due to persistent denial of service attacks; however, the website was restored about two weeks later. The site is also mirrored at an older url.[3]
