Abstract

PARALLEL with the quest for higher speeds in aircraft of the traditional type, there has been a remarkable advance in rocket and missile design in recent years. The German legacy of the V2 gave both East and West a long start in this development, and full advantage of this has been taken in the period of intensive research of the past ten years. Lately the possibility of space travel has made a very profound appeal to people in all spheres and this has caused the pace of research in this field to be stepped up.
