SUMMARY: Two, uh... people without clothes. That's what comes to mind when people think about the Pioneer space probes. From a series of some of the most advanced and original missions brought forward by NASA, people's subsequent memory is a sketch of a nude man and women that was used as a greeting card to alien life forms. Luckily, if you want some refreshing insight into the science and the politics of the Pioneer space probes, then you can read Mark Wolverton's book, The Depths of Space, to easily augment some half-forgotten image of people in their natural form.

This sounds interesting.

I look forward to reading the book.

I experienced first-hand the devastating mix of science and politics in the US space program since 1960.

With kind regards,
