Dr. Wernher von Braun presented approximately 500 speeches in the years from 1947 to 1976. His topics varied widely, from education and religion to the Cold War and space exploration. Inevitably, he managed to relate a general survey of the space program into a majority of his speeches, and extol the virtues of space exploration as they relate to human values and society. Forty-seven of his speeches have been selected and presented in chronological order in this book, giving the reader a comprehensive picture of von Braun's experiences and passions, the effects that society had on him throughout his life, and the contributions that he in turn made to society. His strong feelings concerning the former Soviet Union and the Cold War are seen to be a natural consequence of having lived and worked his early life in a dictatorial Germany. By comparison, his appreciation of the quality of life in America comes through clearly. Wernher von Braun was known as the quintessential rocket scientist, the leading progenitor of both the V-2 missile and the Saturn V launch vehicle, the two land-mark accomplishments in the field of rocketry. But inside the scientist was a man of passion and conviction, a man whose speeches were always food for thought, as this book makes abundantly clear. Features
