Editorial Reviews


The author does an excellent job of telling this story―translating the science into prose, characterizing the various personalities and institutions, organizing the convoluted tale into a narrative, and assessing interactions of multifarious factors. The work... will stand as a significant contribution to the literature. Much of the story has not yet been told, or if it has, certainly not in this detail or scope. It is likely to rank high in the top score or so of books devoted to the history of space science.

(Joseph N. Tatarewicz, University of Maryland, Baltimore County)

Comprehensive history... recommended.


As one of the latest books in the New Series in NASA History, Conway's project introduces a new aspect of space science that will be of interest to scholars of this field.

(Kristine C. Harper American Historical Review)


(Roger D. Launius Quest)
