Experiments in the Principles of Space Travel (1955)

Another of the old scans.  I have just the cover scanned and need to dig in the archives for more.

Branley, Franklyn M. Illustrated by Wong, Jeanyee. Experiments in the Principles of Space Travel. New York: Thomas Y Crowell. (119 p.) 21 cm. 1955

As the book says "space travel is inevitable". The purpose of this book was to educate the reader in the basic scientific principles of space travel. The text discusses distances in space, streamlining and rocket design, powering the ship, and condition found in space. Contains simple experiments showing various  principles covering the areas that a "junior space engineer" would be expected to know.  Illustrations of space suits, rockets, space stations. Also see 1966, 1973 editions.
