Why Satellites Stay in Orbit (1964)

Scotch tape???
Back when America had one giant neck ache from looking up all the time, educators and authors tried to explain many wonders to children. I mean how many adults do you know who can explain why satellites don't fall down?
Engelbrektson, Sune. Illustrated by Ames, Lee. Why Satellites Stay in Orbit? New York: Holt Rinehart and Winston Inc. (26 p.)

This is a very basic book on gravity using satellites and space craft as examples. Illustrations of satellites, rockets and the Earth from space.
