"Exploring the unknown" is a multi-volume series containing a selection of key documents in the history of the U. S. civil program. Volume III, focusing on the use of space for practical applications, prints 112 keys documents on the history of satellite communications, remote sensing of Earth, and space as an investment in economic growth, edited for ease of use. Many of these are published here for the first time. Each is introduced by a headnote providing context, bibliographical information, and background information necessary to understanding the document. These are organized into three major sections, each beginning with an introductory essay that keys the documents to major events in the history of the space program.
This documentary history is an essantial reference for anyone interested in the history of the U. S. civil space program and its development over time. It will serve as a valuable source both for students and scholars. Additional volumes will appear later that trace relations with other organizations and the programmatic developments in the history of the U. S. exploration of space.
