Follows the progress of George Low, NASA's Deputy Administrator, from
the initial recognition in 1972 of the need to be much more cost
effective, to NASA's attempt to find a vision for the new space
agency. Covers the rise, rejection and fall of the Low Cost Systems
Office in NASA and attempts to explain why the low cost program
failed, and why the same or similar cost issues still plague NASA,
government and industry a generation later.
