Product description

Review

"The Mars Project is timely... von Braun's views, seen today against the debate over the role of the shuttle, the development of Space Station Freedom, and the proposal to land Earthlings on Mars early in the next century, raise questions that we still seek to answer."-Jannelle Warren-Findley, co-editor of A Documentary History of the Space Age

About the Author

Dr. Wernher von Braun was instrumental in developing Germany's V-2 rocket during World War II. After the war, he emigrated to the United States and became a driving force behind America's space-launch vehicles. America's first satellite and the Apollo spacecraft that landed on the Moon were launched by rockets designed by von Braun. He is the author of "The Mars Project."
