 About the Book 

LEARN ONE IMPORTANT THING ABOUT SPACEPublished in the early days of the space race, this book explains why satellites stay in orbit. No math equations are used, just easy-to-grasp analogies and charming illustrations. I took several years of physics in high school and college, and never got a better explanation than the one in this book: a satellite does not fall back to earth- it falls around the Earth. — Mark FrauenfelderWhy Satellites Stay in Orbitby Sune Engelbrektson and Lee AmesHolt, Rinehart and Winston, Inc.1964, 28 pages, 6.6 x 9.1 x 1.1$9 Buy a copy on Amazon
