This book is part of a two-volume overview of U.S. missile and rocket technology. For nearly fifty years, a wide range of missiles and rockets has propelled U.S. satellites and spacecraft into the sky. This two-volume work traces the evolution of this technology, from Robert Goddard's research in the 1920s through the development of the Titan missiles and launch vehicles in the 1960s to the refinement of the space shuttle in the 1980s. With the first book devoted primarily to military hardware and the second to launch vehicle hardware, the book offers an overview of these impressive engineering innovations as well as insights into the dynamic personalities responsible for them.
