Selling Outer Space: Kennedy, the Media, and Funding for Project Apollo, 1961-1963. James L. Kauffman.
Tuscaloosa, AL: University of Alabama Press, 1994. Hardcover. x, [2], 190, [6] pages. Notes. Bibliography. Index. The author was a professor at Indiana University Southeast. The author examines the Kennedy administration's rhetoric to understand why Project Apollo received so little opposition. The administration's rhetoric "sold" the space project as a great frontier adventure story. By describing space as the New Frontier, the Kennedy administration shaped the way Americans interpreted and gave meaning to space exploration. The frontier narrative established a presumption in favor of massive commitments of the nation's resources to staffed space flight. The continuing influence of the frontier mythology is perhaps nowhere more evident than in the decision to develop the space shuttle program. Ultimately, the shuttle's attraction may have been the symbolic importance of the fact that the astronauts flew the craft as a plane, thereby reaffirming the rugged individualism and daring of the frontier myth.
