From the NASA History Office:
Readers may be interested to know about Paul Dickson's A Dictionary of the Space Age. This newest book published by Johns Hopkins University Press' New Series in NASA History is an unusually compelling, useful, and readable reference work. A greatly updated and expanded version of The Origins of NASA Names (NASA SP-4402, 1976), this new volume by an experienced lexicographer employs an Oxford English Dictionary-style approach to explain the etymology and first usage of both familiar and esoteric aerospace terms of the last half-century. More details, including ordering information, are online.
