Lost in Space; The Fall of NASA and the Dream of a New Space Age. Greg Klerkx.
New York: Pantheon Books, 2004. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. [8], 392 pages. Illustrations. References Notes. Index. The author has written that "I began my career as a journalist in California, where I won awards for feature, commentary and investigative writing. I have written journalism and essays consistently since then and have also published two books, Lost in Space and The Emissary. In the past few years, I’ve taken my journalism and essayist work in a new direction through organizational ‘impact’ writing: positioning ideas, projects, research and people in the public eye through writing. To date, I’ve done impact writing for the London School of Economics and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and this is an area of work I’m keen to develop further.

Robert Kraemer was hired by the rocket division of North American Aviation where he designed rocket engines. Kraemer served as the head of Advanced Design at Rocketdyne for over a decade, designing or overseeing the development of the engines that powered Jupiter, Thor, Atlas, and Saturn rockets. Kraemer left Rocketdyne to join The Aeronautic Division of the Ford Motor Company (prime contractor for the Ranger series of lunar landers) in the Fall of 1961, where he was promoted to chief engineer for Space Systems. Kraemer joined NASA in 1967 to manage the Voyager Mars Surface Laboratory, a program that was canceled within months of his arrival. He was then appointed as manager of Advanced Planetary Programs and Technology, and immediately began plans for a Mars orbiter. Beginning in 1969, he also chaired the Outer Planets Working Group (OPWG), which met monthly to review competing mission plans under development to explore the outer planets, and make recommendations.

Overview of Advanced Radioisotope Power Systems; For the Staff of E. Fenton Carey, Special Assistant to the Secretary for Space Programs. Robert Lange.
Washington DC: U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Special Applications, 1991. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. 55 sheets, with information and images (illustrations) on one side only. Staple bound in upper right corner. This briefing was presented on June 28, 1991. Rare surviving of program briefing. A radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG, RITEG) is an electrical generator that uses an array of thermocouples to convert the heat released by the decay of a suitable radioactive material into electricity by the Seebeck effect. This generator has no moving parts. RTGs have been used as power sources in satellites, space probes, and unmanned remote facilities such as a series of lighthouses built by the former Soviet Union inside the Arctic Circle. RTGs are usually the most desirable power source for unmaintained situations that need a few hundred watts (or less) of power for durations too long for fuel cells, batteries, or generators to provide economically, and in places where solar cells are not practical. Safe use of RTGs requires containment of the radioisotopes long after the productive life of the unit.
