Our space program has received an endless wave of good publicity - Boeing and Lockheed fund think tanks like the Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute, NPR chit-chats with astronauts in space, and movies like "The Right Stuff" and the Tom Hanks film put the best spin possible on this wasteful and environmentally appalling effort to do god knows what in space (much of what's being done at NASA is classified military projects violating various treaties).
Reading this important book reminds one of the Bob Marley verse from his song "So Much Trouble in the World" - See men sailing on an ego trip/Blast off on a space ship/A million miles from reality/No care for you, no care for me.
Bravo to Mr. Grossman for puncturing the endless romanticization of this reckless project.
Grossman does additional important work through his tv project, EnviroVideo.
It reads like a thriller, describing one lie and obfuscation of the facts after another until, by the end, the real purpose of America's thrust into space becomes crystal-clear: World domination at all costs, regardless of the potential for destruction of the environment.
This book should be required reading for all space enthusiasts who blindly follow NASA's version of what the purpose of our space policies are.
A remarkable achievement by one of America's finest Investigative Reporters.
