What Our Customers Say...
An Important Work, First Edition, With Dustwrapper
Part of the 'Technical Trends Series' of books. With sixteen full page monochrome plates, and many demonstrative vignettes throughout. Arthur C. Clarke was a British science fiction writer and inventor, who is widely regarded as a key figure in the popularisation of space travel. His screenplay for the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was co-written with Stanley Kubrick, is considered to be one of the most influential films of all time. For many years Arthur C. Clarke, along with Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asmiov, were considered the 'Big Three' of science fiction writing. Clarke also wrote a number of extremely influential non-fiction works. Interplanetary Flight was Clarke's first work of non-fiction and is a short introduction to space exploration. The work was written to be accessible to readers with a high school level of scientific education. It also contains a short mathematical appendix for readers not familiar with some of the included formulae.
