About this title


Lunar Prospector, Against all Odds is the Principal Investigator’s highly personal account of the triumphs, defeats, dirty politics, and ultimate success enjoyed and endured during the 13 years it took to accomplish the Lunar Prospector mission. Like the mission, Lunar Prospector, Against all Odds answers to the American taxpayer, but this time spotlighting the incompetence and self-serving activities of the NASA bureaucracy and accompanying aerospace industries. Together, they waste a large portion of the $13 billion yearly federal government budget to execute America’s space program.

The Lunar Prospector mission was the only NASA funded space project that was conceived and managed by a scientist rather than a NASA bureaucrat or engineer — a venture initially developed outside NASA that proved when missions are properly conceived and managed, the cost of space exploration can be cut by a factor of 10.

Lunar Prospector, Against all Odds shines light on the faltering American space program, however, it also provides new hope and vision — one for transforming the tired space industry into an efficient, commercially based, and profit-driven program that eliminates the federal government handouts which so lucratively line the pockets of the huge aerospace industry.
