Jet Propulsion Laboratory Publications Collection, 1947-1980 (1960-1970)

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) was organized by the US Army at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech) to study a variety of propulsion-related topics. With the establishment of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 1958, JPL was transferred from the Army to NASA, where it continued its development work on launch vehicles and, in time, space probes

This collection consists of publications issued by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory documenting JPL's work in jet and rocket propulsion, launch vehicle development, and planetary reconnaissance. Most of the material relates to work performed under NASA auspices, but significant material from Army- and Air Force-related research is also included
