  1. DARPA has nothing to do with the creation of GPS. See my website for more details.

  2. Agreed. See my article in The Space Review for additional details.

    • Thanks for the link and the link to the other review as well.

      The problem with Jacobsen is that she is neither an academic nor a specialist. I appreciate that she is a good writer though and her ability to score interviews (and get them to talk) is something that historians often overlook in favor of archival sources. She teases a lot of information from real people that just isn’t available in any official record. That’s a significant contribution and make’s her investigations worthwhile – and besides, any egregious errors of the historical record can and will be addressed through critical reviews.
