The Wonders of Space Rockets, Missiles and Spacecraft (circa 1967)
The Wonders of Space Rockets, Missiles and Spacecraft by Martin Keen,
Copyright 1967 by Grosset & Dunlap, Inc.
The above text, found in a school library of fourth and fifth graders, is a
treasure of information about the origin and future of space technology.
The manned orbital craft shown in the cover painting is an excellent example
of a personal launch system (PLS). The technology depicted above became
very appropriate in the 1990s with the need to ferry astronauts to the
Internation Space Station.
