Adventures in Star City

Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)


“How did you ever become a member of that small group of space sleuths,” is a question I’m asked every now aod then by others who are interested in the history of spaceflight. The truth is that I don’t really know, nor do I know what moment in time marked my “joining”. Somehow, I feel that this goes for all of us who apparently are members of this small group. I’ve always seen ‘space sleuth’ as ao honorary title that one can’t apply for.
