The Decline of the Space Program
A Study in Organizational Communication
Phillip K. Tompkins - 2005
Amazon: US UK

"Tompkins (emeritus organizational communication, U. of Colorado-Boulder) traces changes in internal and external communications at the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) from its beginnings just after World War II through the breakup of the Columbia space shuttle in February 2003."

Lost in Space : The Fall of NASA and the Dream of a New Space Age
Greg Klerkx - 2004
Amazon: US UK

"In Lost in Space, Greg Klerkx argues that ever since the last human left the moon in 1972, the Space Age has been stuck in the wrong orbit—and NASA, the organization that once fueled the world’s space-faring hopes, has been largely responsible for keeping it there. With the loss of the space shuttle Columbia, there has never been a more critical time for anyone interested in the future of space exploration to ask two questions: Whatever happened to the Space Age? And how do we get it back?"

New Moon Rising
Frank, Jr. Sietzen, Keith L. Cowing- 2004
Amazon: US UK

"The book is a detailed history of the evolution of the U.S. civil space program from the February 1, 2003 space shuttle Columbia accident to the release of the Presidential Commission report on Moon, Mars, and Beyond on June 2, 2004. During these extraordinary 16 months, nearly every element of NASA’s leadership was placed under a political microscope, with the result that the space agency set upon a new course of reorganization, resulting with President George W. Bush’s announcement of an entirely new space policy for the U.S." - excerpt from book description at Amazon
