I inside look at the space race and the cold war politics that drove it. I learned so much from this book. Truely an incredible story of science fact!
The fact that our own government kept us from launching the first satellite before the USSR. Our own government forced Von Braun's Jupiter C rocket to fly 1,300 lbs. of sand as a second stage to keep his rocket from going into orbit. All because the elected officials wanted there pet Navy Vanguard program to be the first to orbit.
