KIRKUS REVIEW

For the boy with a good grounding in physics and a real interest in super-science facts, this book by the rocket expert and science writer, Ley, and the scientific illustrator, Bonestell, sticks to the facts and never reverts to comic-book paraphernalia. They make a fascinating business of the mechanics and mathematics of space travel, of the conditions likely to be met by the first space-travelers when they set off for the moon, Venus, or other points in the solar system.
