As a key insider of America's early, golden age in space, Murray recreates the drama of the unnamed space probes, then relates how he watched in sorrow and frustration as the program became ``a helpless hostage'' to the phase of NASA's Space Shuttle program that culminated in the 1986 Challenger disaster. ``His detailed criticism of the leadership of NASA will be of interest to anyone concerned over America's loss of leadership in space,'' noted PW.
