KIRKUS REVIEW

With the concept of space flight for man reaching its realization, texts dealing factually with the mechanisms involved are much in demand. This text deals explicitly with space capsules, air-borne monkeys, rockets, safety devices, guidance mechanism, and the men who may soon be catapulted out of the earth's gravitational orbit. Illustrated with photographs this is a meaningful book for boys who anticipate an air force career and for those who are intrigued with the details of our efforts toward the conquest of space.
