Review: Rocket Ship Galileo

Rocket Ship GalileoRocket Ship Galileo by Robert A. Heinlein
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I believe this story was the inspiration behind the recent comedy sci-fi film, Iron Sky, about Nazis building a base on the moon to launch an attack against the allies on Earth. Only, in the film, they spent 70 years preparing and it’s modern day. Anyway, a decent juvenile novel, not very interesting but it is still readable for a 1947 novel.
