Product description

Review

" "Single Stage to Orbit" is a history of one particular aspect of US space history -- the attempt to develop a single-stage-to-orbit launcher... it is a story of muddle and waste... Butrica provides a competent and readable account of this debacle, which concentrates on the small research vehicle, DC-X."--D. M. Ashford, "Times Literary Supplement"
