“Early Propulsion Development Sites and the Risks of Space Flight” provides a review of some of the earliest space history sites on Earth that had a direct connection to the Apollo program: the sites where man first overcame the limits of physics to achieve space flight through the development of Jet Assisted Take-off technology. Sites and events reviewed include early works by Goddard- regarded as the father of modern rocketry- and also Auburn, Mescalero, Roswell, Tsiolkovsky, Oberth, and Von Braun.
