Rocket flight still offers the possibility of theoretical surprises. Relativistic rocket flight has great appeal if for no other reason than that rockets are self-contained and need not rely on background energy input extracted from the locations of space travel. No doubt, the study of rocket science has much room for further development. When coupled with general relativistic approaches, some fascinating possibilities arise for enhancing time dilation and spacecraft velocity. At the time of this writing in Early June, here just 15 miles West of Washington D.C., I have Independence Day fireworks on my mind and am looking forward to the warm weather. As such, many of us in the states will enjoy the crude but pleasantly colored pops and bursts from bottle rockets and the bold booms and sky-lighting illumination of large municipal fire-works displays. So, just about every person of the age of reason can understand the basic principles of operation of rockets. Thus, I hope you will avail yourself to enjoy this tour of fascinating rocket concepts. I have many additional books in this series planned.
