About this Item

A Near Fine copy with slight fading to the head of the cloth spine in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with slight edge wear. Review copy with author photo laid-in. The author has laid out the history of the Apollo moon project as called for by President John F. Kennedy promising in 1961 to put a man on the moon in ten years. Mr. Alexander accents the peculiarly American quality of our space effort by contrasting its sophisticated science with its "quiet tinkering and junkyard gadgetry". Between chapters (in lyric italics) runs an imaginative preconstruction of the first flight in practice, all the way and back, which is a piece of striking story-telling. With some wryness, the author spends a chapter assessing the Russian program and compares single-minded Russian technology with the diffusiveness of ours. Bookseller Inventory # 25116
