    The Voyage of the Space Beagle by A. E. van Vogt

An episodic novel filled with surprises and provocative ideas, this is the story of a great exploration ship sent out into the unknown reaches of space on a long mission of discovery. They encounter several terrifying alien species, including the Ix, who lay their eggs in human bodies, which then devour the humans from within when they hatch. This is one of the most entertaining and gripping stories in all of classic SF.

    Time For The Stars by Robert A. Heinlein

With over-population stretching the resources of Earth, the need to find and colonize other Terra-type planets is becoming crucial to the survival of the human race. But finding these planets is time-consuming and very costly. Tom and Pat are recruited by LRF to become the human transmitters and receivers for the mission. But there is a catch: during the course of the mission, while one of them stays behind and grows old, on Earth, the other will be traversing the stars, and--if he survives--will return a young 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.
