7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By G. Kennedy on December 31, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The best book I've seen so far on the Ares / post space shuttle rockets. This is a serious rocket designed to go primarily back into deep space, as opposed to the space shuttle which is just a trolley bus to space stations. The biggest version is as big as the old Saturn V .... anyone who's stood next to that thing knows this is one serious rocket...
Its a compact book but as these types of books date quite quickly, its ideal.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Dr. James M. Busby on April 10, 2007
Format: Paperback
Tim McElyea has done a great job at revealing the opening shots of Project Constellation and the Orion program. This book is a must for people that are just coming aboard the project and for those that want to know where the governments money is going on the Space Shuttle's replacement. It highly utilizes computer illustrations to show the next step in America's long road to the Moon and Mars.

Let there be no mistake here- this is THE first book on the subject, and it will be changed and modified over the next few years as this program shapes up.

Writer McElyea even goes over the possible changes to the program like the use of Ares IV booster instead. His illustrations show the breakdowns of the launchers and spacecraft. He has done a wonderful job at showing how the Orion Spacecraft, lunar lander, Ares I and V rockets will work. Not too technical, not too simplistic.

I heartily recommend this book for all ages. It will be the book in the back pocket for those who are in school now but will someday be riding these mighty vehicles to the Moon and Mars.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By James F. Mcenanly on January 7, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book is as clear a guide to the plans to return to the Moon as can be published at such an early date. It gives a broad overview of the craft that will be built to undertake the journey .
The sections on the Ares vehicles is interesting, and shows the Shuttle heritage of the Orion program. The Orion section is a little indistinct, as the Spacecraft is still undergoing design changes, and the section on the Altair Lander is sketchier still, as at the time, they were still referring to it by the acronym LSAM or Lunar Surface Access Module.
This book is great for current readers who are following the current build -up to a Lunar return as well as providing future readers with a historical context to the earlier days of the Second Lunar explorations
