About this book

Reveals how NASA cashed in on the Americans' thirst for heroes in an age of discontent and became obsessed with putting men in space. This work explains why the American space program has been caught in a state of purposeless wandering ever since Neil Armstrong descended from Apollo 11 and stepped onto the moon. The effort devoted to the space program was indeed magnificent and its cultural impact was profound, but the purpose of the program was as desolate and dry as lunar dust.
