Irwin Allen's outer space adventure series, Lost in Space,
continues to amaze. Now 45 years after it debuted on CBS, folks are
still enthralled by the adventures of the "Space Family Robinson"
travelling around the galaxy in their iconic spaceship, the Jupiter 2.
This book takes over where previous fan generated efforts have left
off. LiS wasn't just a "monster-of-the-week" show. In fact, considerable
research into real space flight and serious science fiction concepts of
space travel went into the show’s design. Vestiges of this research can
still be found in the function of the Jupiter 2 and the other equipment of the expedition.
professionals and edited by an aerospace engineer, it makes the hardware
as real as possible while remaining true to the stories. With seeming
half of fandom writing stories and designing games for the other half,
we expect this to become the standard reference for the expedition that
was "Lost in Space."
