KIRKUS REVIEW

A brief history of space probes and satellites, this text mainly concerns itself with the U.S. race for space supremacy, although considerable and detailed attention is given to similar attempts by Russia. Technical without being baffling, the text describes the various instruments, their shortcomings, advantages, and the manner in which they operate. A helpful summary for those space directed readers with an interest in technical procedures.
