Description

 Based on Eugen Sanger's German WWII research for an "antipodal bomber," Dyna-Soar would be launched on a large booster, be over the "area of interest" at any spot in the world in less than an hour, collect its intel and land on a conventional runway anywhere in the western US. Total mission time: less than two hours from liftoff to touchdown. Other versions had full orbital capabilities to service any of the Air Force space stations being proposed in the early '60s.

Written by Air Force historian Dr. Roy Houchin, with full access to all official documents, this will be the definitive work on the program for some time to come.
