Dark Mission: The Secret History of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Richard C. Hoagland, Mike Bara.
Los Angeles, CA: Feral House, 2007. First edition. First printing [stated]. Trade paperback. xiv, 548 p. Illustrations (some in color). Endnotes. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Hoagland was a Curator of Astronomy and Space Science at the Springfield Science Museum, 1964–1967, and Assistant Director at the Gengras Science Center in West Hartford, Connecticut, 1967–1968, and a Science Advisor to CBS News during the Apollo program, 1968–1971. In 1969, he was contracted by the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation to write a chapter about the Moon for a book. The Grumman publication was intended to educate members of the media and government officials concerning the Apollo Lunar Module. For most Americans, the word NASA suggests a squeaky-clean image of technological infallibility. Dark Mission documents this seemingly wild assertion. Why is the Bush administration intent on returning to the moon as quickly as possible? What are the reasons for the current "space race" with China, Russia, and India? Remarkable images reproduced within this book provided to author Richard C. Hoagland by disaffected NASA employees provide clues why, including information about suppressed lunar discoveries.

The complete story is told here, along with a selection of rare photos.

Free Space!; Real Alternatives for Reaching Outer Space. B. Alexander Howerton.
Port Townsend, WA: Loompanics Unlimited, 1994. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. [6], 144, [8] pages. Illustrations (some with color). Notes. Index. Cover has slight wear and soiling. The author argues that the way to encourage the exploration of space is to privatize it, and profiles some of the profit-seeking companies that are already active. Nearly a quarter century ago he forecast that the next round in the space race won't be run by NASA. This time, it will be private companies building space stations and shooting payloads to the planets. Science fiction, you say? Take another look. Free Space! opens with an explosive critique of NASA ­p; the government behemoth that put a man on the Moon and has been grounded ever since. Listen in as the author grills the head of NASA at a press conference. Howerton then poignantly pens a new Manifest Destiny for colonizing outer space. The second half of Free Space! contains capsule descriptions of ten companies that are preparing for space travel today. Run by NASA/aerospace alumni, they have the know-how and the money to make it real. Find out how they'll open the heavens to commercial travel in the coming decade. B. Alexander Howerton is the editor of Space Available, the newsletter for investors in space -related stocks. He interviewed all of the principal players in these companies. Free Space! contains private communications, rare illustrations and photos not available anywhere else.
