Man and Science Today
The United States will have spent nearly 40 billion dollars by the time they put a man on the moon, yet the real objectives of the programme remain obscure. How much is it directed towards scientific investigation and exploration, and how much is it an extension of the arms race? The most controversial area is the future of manned flight. After the moon where can man go in space? What kind of propulsion will he use to take him to the outer planets, even to other solar systems? Most important of all, when he moves into space will the returns justify the effort?
