DISCUSSION

Some measure an author's greatness in the ability to explain the complex in understandable fashion. Among science and science fiction authors, Isaac Asimov is legendary. The above children's space science text is testimony of Asimov's skillful crafting of language to enthuse the young reader. The particular copy of the above book was inscribed: "Dear David...At Christmas time please read me a chapter of this book; I would be so happy...Love, Grandmother..."

It was children's space books like Asimov's SATELLITES IN OUTER SPACE which excited an entire generation of youth to pursue science, mathematics, and engineering.
