This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In May 1946-more than 11 years before the orbiting of Sputnik, history's first artificial space satellite-Project RAND, then active within Douglas Aircraft Company's Engineering Division, released its first report: Preliminary Design of an Experimental World-Circling Spaceship. This facsimile edition makes the report available to the public for the first time since its historic debut over 50 years ago. The central argument turns on the feasibility of such a space vehicle from an engineering stand-point, but alongside the curves and tabulations are now-proven theories on the significance of satellites to man's store of knowledge and on the possibility of man in space.
