Commendably edited by NASA's Anthony Springer, it is organized around two broad themes: one, a series of papers on Sputnik and its influence (reflecting that these papers were presented a half-century after its launch on October 4, 1957), and the other a series of papers on the history of rocketry and astronautics in India; though many other topics are covered as well.

Of all the papers, I found the following of particular interest:

--Asif A. Siddiqi's reexamination of the origins of the Sputnik program. He casts new light on internal Soviet space decision-making in the early-to-mid 1950s, elaborating upon earlier work he has done that has rightly established him as the dean of Soviet space studies. …
