After Apollo? Richard Nixon and the American Space Program. Logsdon, J. (2015). New York: Palgrave MacMillan.


Once the United States landed on the moon in July 1969, it was up to President Nixon to decide what to do in space after Apollo. This book chronicles the decisions he made, including ending space exploration and approving the space shuttle. Those decisions determined the character of the US human space flight program for the next forty years.
