    The NASA Authorization Act of (Section ) (see Appendix A) expressed the sense of Congress that suborbital flight activities, including the use of sounding rockets, aircraft, high-altitude balloons, and suborbital reusable launch vehicles, offer valuable opportunities to advance science. "Rockets and Revolution offers a multifaceted study of the race toward space in the first half of the twentieth century, examining how the Russian, European, and American pioneers competed against one another in the early years to acquire the fundamentals of rocket science, engineer simple rockets, and ultimately prepare the path for human spaceflight.

    Spaceflight is the use and exploration of the space kilometres and higher above the Earth. It is related to Astronomy, but is different in that astronomy is about looking at space, and spaceflight is actually going there.
