Space Flight Report to the Nation (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Space Flight Report to the Nation Space flight report TO the nation recapitulates the American Rocket Society's massive effort to inform the Ameri can people oi our rapidly accelerating space program. In this vol ume, our space vehicles are described by leading scientists and engineers in the field of vehicle engineering, and their scientific and exploratory missions are explained by equally well-qualified individuals. In addition to the scientific and engineering aspects of astronautics, the all-important global inﬂuences of astronautics are discussed in terms of their military, political, and economic effects. And since no report to the nation on Space ﬂight would be complete without some mention of the so-called space race between the United States and the Soviet Union, a panel discussion on this topic also is included. In short, we have here a book which sums up the status of astronautics as it exists today. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
