Spaceflight History

To a Distant Day chronicles humanity’s efforts to go into space from the beginnings of history to the eve of Yuri Gagarin’s historic spaceflight in 1961.

To A Distant Day: The Rocket Pioneers. University of Nebraska Press, 2008, as part of the Outward Odyssey series.

“On the whole, this is a detailed, deftly written history that should appeal to all would-be rocketeers, whether launching from fields on weekend afternoons or just dreaming of space in a comfortable chair.” – Publishers Weekly
