The New Camelot: The Quest for the Overview Effect. How might human space exploration have been different if President John F. Kennedy, architect of the Apollo lunar program, had lived to serve out his first, or even a second, term? In The New Camelot: The Quest for the Overview Effect, Frank White poses a radically new interpretation of Apollo and the Kennedy Administration, and suggests that we might well have a collaborative "Human Space Program" exploring and developing the solar system if JFK had not been assassinated.

Acclaimed author Frank White further explores the relationship between the Camelot myth and the Overview Effect (a term he coined in his book by the same name). He focuses on the relationship between the stories told of King Arthur's court and the administration of President Kennedy, with particular emphasis on Apollo. White suggests that the Apollo astronauts were modern "Grail Knights," and that the Overview Effect is the modern "Holy Grail" that is needed to take the next steps in human evolution. It's a must read for anyone interested in the human future.
