In this book, Patrick Norris responds to the 50th Anniversary of the dawn of the Space Age - the launch of Sputnik 1 - with a review of the most important historical applications of space science for the benefit of the human race during that half century, focusing on the prevention of nuclear war. In developing this story Norris illuminates a little-known aspect of the Space Age, namely the military dimension.

In one neat and readable package, this book brings together the myths and rumours, facts and factoids, of which most of us have ... recollection, and places them in an historical setting.
