The book documents Glenn's many research specialties over those 75 years. Among them are early jet engines and rockets; flight safety and fuel efficiency tested in premier icing and wind tunnels; liquid hydrogen fuel which, despite skeptics like aerospace engineer Werner von Braun, helped the U.S. win the race to the moon; and electric propulsion, considered key to future space flight.
