New Series by Barbara Diener

In Barbara Diener's new "The Rocket's Red Glare," she follows the footsteps of two instrumental rocket scientists in the 1930s: Wernher von Braun in Germany and Jack Parsons in Pasadena, CA.

Rather than presenting a complete view of this history, she poses questions, looking at the way that history is passed on through generations, and how facts are distorted, embellished, or undermined.
