NASA's First A - Aeronautics from 1958–2008

NASAsFirstA-508-ebook_01 NASA booklet No. SP-2012-4412.

From preface:"Aeronautics, the first A of the NASA acronym, has always been a part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, but against the headline exploits of rocket launches, Moon landings, Space Shuttle missions, and Mars rovers, aeronautics is easily lost in the shadows of NASA’s marquee space programs. This relative obscurity belies what has been a remarkably creative, productive, and highly effective group of researchers who, at one time, even helped bring about the Space Age and invent a space agency. The list of accomplishments for NASA’s first A is long, and this book goes a modest way toward sketching these developments."

Written by Robert G. Ferguson. Dated 2013. Part of the NASA History Series.
