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.
