This revised edition of the original 1966 work has details of the just completed Apollo 11 lunar landing. Still included are the thousand years of rocketry and Man’s desire to travel to other worlds. The efforts of Tsiolkovsky, Oberth, Goddard and others are described, plus the rapid development of the A4 (V2) rocket by Germany during World War II. The Apollo flights which enabled the first lunar landing complete this extraordinary work.
