Lightspeed: The Quest

by E. Douglas Ward, Lonie Blackman Ward
 

What happens when a rocket propulsion engineer with experience working on the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and ICBM programs teams up with a radio, television, and screen actress to write a book? You get a science fiction story that challenges Einstein's theory prohibiting faster than light travel, building a plausible scenario of scientific development and success.

Overview

What happens when a rocket propulsion engineer with experience working on the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and ICBM programs teams up with a radio, television, and screen actress to write a book? You get a science fiction story that challenges Einstein's theory prohibiting faster than light travel, building a plausible scenario of scientific development and success. But it also tells the story of human greed and corruption, ultimately leading to the destruction of the prized technology. Forrest J Ackerman, winner of six Hugo awards, says ". . . a page turner that proceeds at a lightning bolt pace in a race to a coruscating climax: a Hugo!" Wally Schirra, the only man to fly in all of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs says, "Lightspeed: The Quest brings to my mind why I agreed to join Project Mercury, the beginning of manned flight as a mission of NASA. At first I said," send the monkeys", for I am busy flying Mach 2 aircraft. My Quest won, to fly higher, faster and farther."
