GOING INTO SPACE by Arthur C. Clarke

GOING INTO SPACE

KIRKUS REVIEW

Another round-up of the outlook, probabilities and possibilities of present and future space travel- by the chairman of the British Interplanetary Society and a science fiction writer-makes its bid as an authoritative book in a popular, growing market ( Charles Coombs' book reported below). Like others in the field this surveys the rocket, jet and space travel world from man's earliest thoughts about them. Coming up through history then, Mr. Clarke traces developments down to the German V-2 and the latest modern models. Turning skyward he analyzes the atmosphere, the planets and their positions in the universe, the work now going on for flight to them, and what may happen when man gets to the moon.
