Space Travel (1958)
The words fail me. Here is a great book written by Dr. Kurt Spielberg. He was a PhD in physics and taught at City College of New York at the time. He is world famous for his work in Operations Research.
Some cool space art pictures from a wonderful children's book. Enjoy!
Spielberg, Dr. Kurt. Illustrated by Hutchinson, William M. Space Travel. New York: Maxton Publishing Co. (28 p.) 27 cm. (1958)
A simple book covering all aspect of space travel including history, physics, U.S. and Russian space efforts, building a space station, manned exploration of the Moon, and exploration of the planets. It has wonderful paintings of all these things devoting a page or two to each topic. "A Maxton Book about" series. See 1960 update and 1963 UK Reprint.
I like the claws on this space suit.
