Ted Spitzmiller returned to The Space Show to discuss his newly published "Astronautics: Book 2 - To The Moon And Towards The Future, A Historical Perspective of Mankind's Efforts To Conquer the Cosmos." We began our discussion with a bit of history regarding the circumstances that led us to the Moon and then we looked forward to examine our national as well as the international environment of today at a time when we are working to return to the Moon. This proved to be a most interesting discussion, visionary, and educational. You do not want to miss it.

As a space historian and author of the newly published series of books by Apogee, "Astronautics: Book 1-Dawn Of The Space Age" and "Book 2-To The Moon and To The Future," we talked important space history starting with Sputnik 1. As this week is the 50th anniversary of Sputnik, we did focus on the impact of Sputnik on America and the world, plus the early days of the American space program.
