EXPLORING SPACE ( A Little Golden Book) circa
EXPLORING SPACE (A Little Golden Book) by Rose Wyler,
Copyright 1958 by Simon and Schuster
The above children's book is described as a "true story about the rockets of
today and a glimpse of the rockets that are to come." The rockets of "today"
were those of 1958, the advent of the space program. The narrative speaks
of future rockets flying (orbiting) around the world in an hour. Why is
this unlikely? How much time should the flight around the world require?
