KIRKUS REVIEW

The purpose of the book is ""to point out in what areas of living the influence of the space sciences is likely to be felt first and to show that space research is not for military purposes alone"". These aims are accomplished with brevity as Ley moves from orbits and rockets to satellites, communication systems and present research. The last two chapters give the reasons for the man-in-space capsule flights and the by-products of space research.
