Hunley (August ) The author traces the program’s development from Goddard’s early rockets (and the German V-2 missile) through the Titan IVA and the Space Shuttle, with a focus on space-launch vehicles. NASA's Project Orion, which was initiated inproposed propelling a spacecraft by detonating a series of atomic bombs behind the vehicle, a concept known as nuclear pulse propulsion.

For nearly fifty years, a wide range of missiles and rockets has propelled U.S. satellites and spacecraft into the sky. Hunley's two-volume work traces the evolution of this technology, from Robert Goddard's research in the s through the development of the Titan missiles and launch vehicles in the s to the refinement of the space.

In the early s, NASA's long-range plan was to continue using Atlas-Centaur until a reusable launch system or a nuclear-powered upper stage could be developed.

To help fund the escalating Vietnam War and the new War on Poverty, Congress drastically reduced the funding of the civilian space addition, further development of the reusable launch vehicle was postponed.

Samuel Kurtz Hoffman (15 April – 26 June ) was an American engineer who specialised in rocket propulsion. He served as chief engineer at engine manufacturing firm Lycoming Engines and later became professor of aerospace engineering at Pennsylvania State University, his alma mater.
