“By dint of his usual painstaking research … Capelotti has uncovered the remarkable intricacies of the less-than-admirable behaviour and the often incomprehensible decisions made by all three leaders.” –William Barr, Arctic Book Review http://arcticbookreview.blogspot.com/2016/06/the-greatest-show-in-arctic-american.html
“Along with Darrin and O’Leary’s edited volume Handbook of Space Engineering, Archeology, and Heritage, Capelotti’s book is a seminal work in the emerging field of space archeology. Space archeology focuses attention on the places and artifacts of space exploration in their broader cultural and historical context, beyond the usual scientific and engineering treatments they have received so far. In this work Capelotti both offers a theoretical framework for thinking about the material manifestations of space exploration and initiates an inventory of lunar, planetary, and (presently or soon to be) interstellar space trash. His work draws both on his reading of primary source materials and with his extensive research into the archeological manifestations of human exploration of an extreme environment, the Arctic, which provides a good terrestrial analog for space exploration.” https://amzn.com/0786458593
