In this book the author Eric Burgess argues for the importance and necessity of a wide-ranging American space program that can develop lunar outposts and a self-sufficient Moon base for space exploration. The book begins with an examination of the scientific and philosophical rationales for space travel and takes an in-depth look at the physical details of the Moon. Numerous tables, charts, and illustrations enhance the analysis. The author also assesses the success and failures of the various Apollo missions. It provides a compelling argument for space exploration and development and how colonization of the Moon could be of extraordinary use for science and commerce.
