The NASA History Division is pleased to announce the availability of a new Monograph in Aerospace History (#36) by Howard E. McCurdy entitled Low-Cost Innovation in Spaceflight: The Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) Shoemaker Mission. This is an insightful study of the management practices on the NEAR mission that originated as an unsolicited proposal from the Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Lab after the CRAF mission was canceled.
