KIRKUS REVIEW

On the wake of latest rocket and satellite development, this text summarizes what has been accomplished to date in the field of space travel. Tracing historically man's vision of flight into the atmosphere, the author refers to the visionaries of fiction who were the vanguard of today's space army. Vanguard, Sputnik, various probings into the nature of outer space are described in detail here and illustrated by Ruth Adler. A concise and factual book which is technical without exceeding the comprehension of most high school readers.
