Several years ago when I first began working with Dr. Ludwig, he mentioned picking away at a book of his own. I'm happy to report it is now available!

Opening Space Research: Dreams, Technology, and Scientific Discovery
George H. Ludwig

Opening Space Research: Dreams, Technology, and Scientific Discovery is George Ludwig's account of the early development of space-based electromagnetic physics, with a focus on the first United States space launches and the discovery of the Van Allen radiation belts. Narrated by the person who developed many of the instruments for the early Explorer spacecraft during the 1950s and participated directly in the scientific research, it draws heavily upon the author's voluminous collection of laboratory notes and other papers, upon the Van Allen archive, and upon a wide array of other sources.

This book presents very detailed discussions of historic events in a highly readable (semitechnical), first-person form. More than that, though, Opening Space Research brings to the forefront the entire team of scientists who made these accomplishments possible, providing an extensive index of names to enhance and complete the historical record.

Authoritative and unique, this book will be of interest to space scientists, science historians, and anyone interested in space history and the first United States space launches.

Special Publication Series, Volume 62, 2011. 478 pages, softbound, ISBN 978-0-87590-733-8, AGU code SP0627338.
