MAN AND THE MOON by Robert S.-Ed. with  Richardson


Email this review


Today we know that man will in the presumably near future land on the moon. Science offers the probable answers to the questions that this poses. Our knowledge of the moon, the history of how man has regarded and written about it, the plans he is now making to visit it, make a fascinating, semi-scientific document for the non-scientist- stranger than any science fiction. This is a symposium of articles written by experts, given continuity and further expansion by the editor-artist team. Ralph Baldwin's The of the Moon is one of the inclusions; the writings of H. Percy Wilkins, Wernher von Braun, and others present as varied an introduction as the layman could ask on principles of space flight, presumption of what life on the moon could be, theories of the origin of the lunar body, what is known of Sputnik's televising of the other side of the moon, etc.
