Detailed Description

201 pgs, 1994, Mina-Helwig Company
ISBN 1-886133-01-8

After a half century of using rockets for space exploration and exploitation, the advances of the American rocket industry have leveled off. Hujsak examines various past launch systems, from Atlas to ULLV, as well as rocketry in general, in terms of both their history and their outlook for the future in times of budget constraints and foreign competition. The clearly written text is supplemented with dozens of photographs and well-labeled drawings.
