In contrast, only two nonfiction works on the subject appeared in the US during same period. The obsession with space travel led Russians to their own rocket scientist, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, who first in world in 1903 produced the first mathematical calculations indicating that spaceflight was possible. Tsiolkovsky's work was republished in 1924, and sparked many newspaper stories about the imminent rockets and spaceships that would be ...
