The Sputnik Challenge: Eisenhower's Response to the Soviet Satellite - Divine, Robert A

Divine provides a fascinating look at Eisenhower's handling of the early space race--a story of public uproar, secret U-2 flights, bungled missile tests, the first spy satellite, political maneuvering, and scientific triumph. The author re-creates the national hysteria over the first two Sputnik launches and the creation of NASA.
