The Rocket Manual tells the story of rocket motors, how they were first developed, how they work, what they are used for and how they are operated. It also explains the origin and operating record of satellite launchers around the world. Rocket motors large and small are listed and explained, including small motors used to push satellites and spacecraft into different orbits, throttleable rockets for controlling spacecraft descending to the Moon and the surfaces of other planets, restartable motors for adjusting orbits and reusable motors such as those developed for the Shuttle.

While not mentioned in this book, Ionic Propulsion engines are the future of orbital orientation/location and interplanetary flight, potentially creating the opportunity for long-term interstellar flight via micro-nuclear reactors. Leaving the Earth's atmosphere still requires rocket propulsion, however.
