Preludes to U.S. space-launch vehicle technology Catalogue en ligne
The reader sees how the V2 program was absorbed into existing rocket programs and how all programs competed against and shared with each other. With the book later splitting technology coverage to separately review liquid fuel and solid fuel propellants, the reader can understand the shifts and accomplishments of each. So, should a curious person wonder why thrust chambers are gimballed, this book has an answer. Should they wonder what the rocket program ever provided society, this book shows the main-streaming of materials, circuit based computers, and program management.
Should a person wonder about the route taken to arrive at the reliable launchers of today, this book shows the path.
