Comments: Heinlein Biography

I noticed an interesting name mentioned in 1984/1985. G. Harry Stine wrote the "Handbook of Model Rocketry" which is considered the bible of rocketry. He practically invented hobby rocketry as we know it today.

Great link!!! Thanks for pointing that out.

Yup I got the Handbook of model rocketry. I havent built or flown any in about three years now. But they are still on my mantle piece.
As for Heinlein, I am a libertarian and used to read a lot of SCi Fi, but for some reason I only mildly liked his books. My favorite authors in the 1970's were A E Van Vogt. Frederick Phol, and Ron Goulart.
Goulart in particular was real good in his predictions of the near future. He forsaw all the gadgets we have now, only in his world, none of them ever worked right.
