History of the Delta Launch Vehicle



Current Delta News

(What about Delta IV?)

19-Aug-03 | Stages to Saturn returns to print

Not exactly Delta-related news — unless you delve deep into the heritage of the RS-27 main engine — but this author wanted to mention that the University Press of Florida will soon re-issue one of the greatest technological histories ever to become a NASA Special Publication. Stages to Saturn: A Technological History of the Apollo/Saturn Launch Vehicles, by Roger E. Bilstein, chronicles the huge leaps in engineering, metallurgy, computers, and myriad other fields that were necessary to build and fly the Saturn V rocket that took man to the moon. The reprint contains the complete text, photos, and illustrations of the wildly informative original, and is available for pre-order at 30% off from Amazon.com. I highly recommend it.
