Aerospace, a eontrectinn of the words slr
and space, is a term used to identify the enti'~
region extending from the earth's surface
through the total expanse beyond.
The napaoity to act through the expanse
beyond the earth's surface is know as a nation's
a e r o s p a n e p o w e r. I n . t h i s p o w e r e q u a t i o n t h e
eivll-military-industrial factors are indivisible

foundation of an informed citizenry enthusiastic
and eepable of acting wisely in a aerospace
world. Just as ancient man explored the seas in
ships and the man of yesterday eoequered the air
in balloons, men today are penetrating the outer
atmosphere in unconventional eirereft and venturing into space aboard revolutionary vebielesThe aerospace sciences that have fostered
today's teehnologieal achievements have simultaneously generated dynamic humanistie forces
that are ehaogiag slgnifieantly the seeJa1~ eeonomie, politiea1~ and edueatinnal structure of our
nation and the world.
All of our people should become familiar
with today's aerospace world and the impact of
its teehnology upon soeiety if we are to maintain
the national and international leadership necessary to advance as a people dedicated to freedom and to world progress.
