Krafft Ehricke's Extraterrestrial Imperative
by Krafft Ehricke and Marsha Freeman
A summation of Krafft Ehricke's work on encouraging the exploration of space, this account offers biographic information on the man himself; encompasses details of his new, innovative ideas; and portrays his thoughts on the importance and value of space travel for society. Providing an understanding of the early history of the space pioneers, what they helped accomplish, and how Ehricke's vision came to fruition, this reference details the continuing need for a creation of a long-term vision for the exploration of space. Historic and yet topical, this resource also includes many of Ehricke's original works, many of which were previously out of print.
