The Exploration of Space by Arthur C. Clarke

My most favourite non fiction book that came from the pen of Arthur C. Clarke is the "The Exploration of Space" published in 1951.

Many of Clarke's predictions about spaceflight as outlined in this book have come true as this video clip produced by Apogee Books shows so remarkably well.
