Britain’s most prolific author of science fiction and fact, Arthur C. Clarke, wrote 'The Exploration of Space' in 1951.
This is the updated Pelican paperback version from 1958, produced a year after the launch of Sputnik. Clarke deals in the 192 pages of this book with the challenges, techniques and possible benefits of space exploration, including lunar missions, satellites, space stations and even interstellar travel.
The book is illustrated with diagrams and photos showing 1950s ideas of what the conquest of space and the advent of communications satellites would be like.
Quite good condition, no damage to pages or cover.
