"The Centaur Upper Stage Rocket" presumes to relate the joint efforts of the NASA Lewis Research Center and "industry" to develop the Centaur missile. Instead, it presents a slanted report of how Abe Silverstein, NASA's Centaur Project Director, designed the Centaur. He is cited on thirty pages, as compared with the single citation for the General Dynamics, Director of Engineering, Drew Kalitinsky which is misspelled as "Katalinsky" (p. 63). Contrary to the impression created by the authors, Centaur was designed by the engineers of General Dynamics.
