About The Book
NASA’s history is a familiar story, culminating with the agency successfully landing men on the Moon in 1969. But NASA’s prehistory is a rarely told tale, one that is largely absent from the popular space-age literature but that gives the context behind the lunar program. America’s space agency wasn’t created in a vacuum; it drew together some of the best minds the non-Soviet world had to offer.
From Wenher von Braun fleeing the ruins of Berlin to the Mercury program, tests of new technologies by pilots such as Neil Armstrong and, in the shadow of Sputnik, the final creation by Dwight D. Eisenhower of NASA, Breaking The Chains of Gravity tells the story of NASA’s roots in an engaging and accessible way, against a backdrop of Nazism, communism, and imminent nuclear annihilation.
