Heinlein's love affair with the Moon. This clean, clear, natural realism or conveyed sense of realism is one of Heinlein's great strengths in science fiction. Three boys just out of high school are active experimenters in back-yard rocketry; substantial back-yard rocketry, with a test-stand and instrumentation.
Their experiments and projects are on a minimal budget, but undertaken seriously. This is the Galileo Club. Heinlein's empathy with his adventurous, experimenting, can-do characters puts the right kind of people in the inhospitable void and satellite. Re: Review by Robert Wilfred Franson.
