Tagged: Author

(1940-2011) US astronomer and author, formerly involved with NASA, and perhaps now best known for his assertion that NASA may have faked photographs of the Moon landing. His Near Future tale, Spaceship Titanic (1983) with Richard Duprey, depicts a Disaster on the hundredth space shuttle flight, which generates a life-or-death situation; the mission is saved. [JC]
