PROJECT VANGUARD

The history, the bitter defeats and final successes of Project Vanguard are here recounted by a scientist-writer attached to the project from its early days in 1955. The author starts with a major event, the failure of the Dec. 6th firing-and works backward to the beginning of the project. Although semi-technical in language, the book is happily filled with anecdotes which will make it readable to a fairly wide audience.
