Contemporary typeface for space project!

I'm currently working on a space project where I am making a book
to commemorate the 30 years of reuseable space flight.

I've been looking at Univers, Futura, Gotham to name a few.

Any thought would be much appreciated!

Too generic.

Use this

when it comes out.
It's by Carl Crossgrove.

Goz, is this a book which is mostly text? And if so, are you committed to using a sans serif font? Or is it a book with a little bit of text and pictures of rockets?
Are you looking for something modern and up-to-date or something serious and official or something adventurous or something technical or something easy to read? Aside from "space" I'm not really getting a direction here. I'm not really sure what the "contemporary" reference in the title of the post means? Who is the target audience?

Thanks for the replys and sorry for the bad description!

It's for a book I'm designing for a college project, target audience is kids aged 10 -15 years!

Book will consist of body copy along with infographics and illustrations.

I'm looking for advice (thats not a generic typeface) to use as a display type to accompany the body copy that is currently "Gotham Rounded light"
