Seeking to reenergize Americans' passion for the space program, the value of further lunar exploration, and the importance of human beings on the final frontier, Claude A. Piantadosi presents a rich history of American space exploration and its major achievements. He emphasizes the importance of reclaiming national command of our manned program and continuing our unmanned space missions, and he stresses the many adventures that still await us in the unfolding universe. Acknowledging space exploration's practical and financial obstacles, Piantadosi nevertheless challenges us to revitalize American leadership in space exploration to reap its scientific bounties.
