In this post, we will see the book Cosmonautics Present And Future by Leonid Levant.
About the book
This is a handbook on American cosmonautics based on foreign publications, particularly review articles contained in the yearbook, “Science and the Future,” published by the well known Encyclopedia Britannica.
The handbook will appeal to a wide circle of readers.
The present collection was compiled from material in foreign publications, in particular, the review articles on astronautics and space research taken from the ”Science and the Future” annual of the Encyclopedia Brittanica.
The collection consists of three basic headings: 1) launches of artificial Earth satellites; 2) flights of inter planetary space probes; and 3) flights of manned spacecraft.]
In itself, of course, the present collection can hardly pretend to present a complete picture, if only because of its brevity. However, in view of the tremendous interest in the forthcoming joint flights, the events and facts elucidated in this collection may help the reader to better understand the present state of American astronautics and some of the prospects for man’s further advances into space.
