SPACE FRONTIER by Werner von Braun


Email this review


Author and title assure an immediate demand for this collection of updated articles from Popular Science, grouped by progressive stages of space flight: launch and ascent, flight through space, space stations, moon flights, satellite programs, interplanetary and interstellar flight possibilities. Dr. von Braun knows how to simplify technical problems and explain their relevance; his talking down is inoffensive, but what begins to grate is his automatic optimism and his rather smug comments on the political and military dimensions of space research. You can't ignore him, however: a balanced collection is the best antidote.
