This book describes missions that revolutionized the space program, our understanding of Mars, our understanding of the oceans of Earth, and many other fields.
It is easy to read, with explanations of technical terms that come up, such as: "what is a radar?"
It includes back stories about people and about situations that are known inside JPL, but are not otherwise available.

We very much enjoy this engaging history covering so many of the fascinating missions from JPL, especially the inside scoop, the back stories, giving inciteful data from a man who actually worked on so many of these projects. Thank you Bob.
