This comprehensive history of the program, its technology, its designers, and its cosmonauts is an important contribution to the history of space technology, and is for those interested in space policy, engineering, systems, and history. On one hand they didn't believe it would lower the cost to orbit and on the other the only real purpose for it would be to allow for launch, drop and landing in a single day.
