I did not realize that the USA, USSR and Germany were all using the same scientific works of one man. Just think how much further along we'd be if we could take th [...]

    This excellent addition to books on space history is devoted to the effort to launch the first satellites. Some of this information is usually included with other books on space history, but only as a chapter or two. It was quite nice to have this book devoted entirely to the subject of the early satellites. The book covers the major players and programs of the era. You get great detail on the Russian program that turned into Sputnik, the Vanguard program, Explorer program and the (usually never [...]
