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.

Defining NASA; The Historical Debate Over the Agency's Mission. W. D. Kay.
Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, 2005. First Printing [Stated]. Trade paperback. xii, 247, [1] pages. Some graphics at start of chapters. List of Abbreviations. Notes. Index. The author is an Associate Professor of Political Science at Northeastern University. Most observers would point to the 1969 Apollo moon landing as the single greatest accomplishment of NASA, yet prominent scientists, engineers, and public officials were questioning the purpose of the U.S. space program, even at the height of its national popularity. Defining NASA looks at the turbulent history of the space agency and the political controversies behind its funding. W. D. Kay examines the agency's activities and behavior by taking into account not only the political climate, but also the changes in how public officials conceptualize space policy. He explores what policymakers envisioned when they created the agency in 1958, why support for the Apollo program was so strong in the 1960s only to fade away in such a relatively short period of time, what caused NASA and the space program to languish throughout most of the 1970s only to reemerge in the 1980s, and, finally, what role the agency plays today.

The New Atlantis; A Journal of Technology & Society, Number 27, Spring 2010. Adam Keiper.
Washington DC: Ethics and Public Policy Center, 2010. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Trade paperback. 135, [1] pages. Illustrations. The New Atlantis, founded in 2003, is a quarterly journal about the social, ethical, political, and policy dimensions of modern science and technology. The journal’s name is taken from Francis Bacon’s novella New Atlantis, which its editors describe as a story "of a society living with the benefits and challenges of advanced science and technology." An editorial in the inaugural issue states that the aim of the Journal is "to help us avoid the extremes of euphoria and despair that new technologies too often arouse; and to help us judge when mobilizing our technological prowess is sensible or necessary, and when the preservation of things that count requires limiting the kinds of technological power that would lessen, cheapen, or ultimately destroy us." Writing for National Review, editor Adam Keiper described The New Atlantis as being written from a "particularly American and conservative way of thinking about both the blessings and the burdens of modern science and technology."
