DISCUSSION

The cover of MAN IN SPACE SATELLITES portrays space satellites of the era. As an early space age publication, some narrative comments have proven inaccurate based on later experience. For example, "Solid fuel is the most desirable fuel for all rockets..." The Saturn 5 Apollo launch rocket used no solid fuel. The energy within solid fuels is about half as much as the liquid (cryogenic) fuel that powers the space shuttle's main engines.
