This discovery will no doubt reignite the lure of interplanetary travel. Will we be up to the task? And, given our limited resources, biological constraints, and the general hostility of space, what shape should we expect such expeditions to take?" "In Robots in Space, Roger Launius and Howard McCurdy tackle these seemingly fanciful questions with rigorous scholarship and disciplined imagination, jumping comfortably among the worlds of rocketry, engineering, public policy, and science fantasy to expound upon the possibilities and improbabilities involved in trekking across the Milky Way and beyond. They survey the literature - fictional as well as academic studies; outline the progress of space programs in the United States and other nations; and assess the current state of affairs to offer a conclusion startling only to those who haven't spent time with Asimov, Heinlein, and Clarke: to traverse the cosmos, humans must embrace and entwine themselves with advanced robotic technologies."--Jacket+-+43523365356755ocn017300439book19880.33Launius, Roger DJoseph Smith III : pragmatic prophetHistoryBiography+-+30601570756508ocn029028807book19940.33Launius, Roger DNASA : a history of the U.S. civil space programHistory6234ocn262886279book20090.21Launius, Roger DSmithsonian atlas of space explorationHistoryPictorial worksTraces the history of space exploration from Ptolomy and Copernicus to the space shuttles and Mars missions of today, and explains the geography of space flight and the ways in which space travel was shaped by Cold War politics+-+61701061555026ocn038930568book19980.20Launius, Roger DNASA & the exploration of space : with works from the NASA art collectionHistoryArtAn overview of the history of NASA and its role in modern space exploration, accompanied by sketches and paintings from American artists+-+51415210063874ocn040450574book19980.53Cassidy, Duane HGeneral Duane H.

Setting the tone for the collection, Roger Launius and Howard McCurdy maintain that the nation's presidency had become imperial by the mid-1970s and that supporters of the space program had grown to find relief in such a presidency, which they believed could help them obtain greater political support and funding.

From the 1830s to the 1880s, Doniphan was active in a variety of affairs in Missouri and held firm to several underlying principles, including loyalty, hard work, the sanctity of the republic, and commitment to Christian charity. However, the key to Doniphan's importance was his persistent moderation on the critical issues of his day.
