A whole bunch of really really bad ideas and a few interesting ones that just didn t work out are explored in this book of failures From exploding bats to giant space mirrors to the titular nuking of the Moon Dr Vince Houghton takes us on a guided tour through the drawing boards and frighteningly the test sites of some strange ideas For History and tech buffs this one is a must read But it s also just fun and scary if you want good stories well told Dr Houghton s style is conversational and filled with humor I actually know Vince and the book reads just like he talks which is great because he s an excellent storyteller He doesn t drown you in technobabble He doesn t talk d

Free read õ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ð Vince Houghton Vince Houghton ð 7 Free read Read Å Nuking the Moon And Other Intelligence Schemes and Military Plots Left on the Drawing Board ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Of US plans to justify attacking Cuba Through extensive archival research and expert interviews Vincent Houghton has dug up than thirty of these fascinating abandoned plans and recounts the story behind each one in vivid captivating detail revealing not only what might have happened but also what each one tells us about the history and people around it The first ever book to bring these historical episodes together this wholly original work alternatively terrifying and hilarious but always riveting is the uniue story of history left on the drawing board. What a marvelous dinner guest Mr Houghton must be This book was highly informative written in a witty down to earth manner I received an ARC from a Goodreads giveaway shortly after paying my taxes had to laugh at the follies financed by my sweat blood I actually prefer having my money go toward such lunacy than to our corrupt mayor who is running the city into debt while collecting 200Kyear for a 2 hour consultation from a bank or our useless governor with the voice but not the charisma of Kermit the Frog
