About interesting people at JPL.

Title page quotes:

Malina developed JATO with von Kármán and helped found Aerojet to produce them. Malina was hounded out of the US as an accused communist, while von Braun and the Operation Paperclip Germans were welcomed as "not really Nazis" to head the US space program. Malina became an artist in Paris, and died in 1981.

Much of the book is about JPL's evolution out of sexism, and about MG's growing understanding of her father's aloofness and driving regrets.
