Industry insider Robert Rowe was given unprecedented access to the Fox Television archives when he started researching Lost in Space in the mid 1980s. For over a decade, he continued to pore over production documents and interview the craftsmen responsible for creating the show. The result was The Jupiter 2 Repair Manual, a guide on the workings of the ship for the writers of the stillborn LIS reunion TV special. Fans of the show will be eternally grateful for Robert Rowe’s efforts since those archives are no longer accessible, and most of the people responsible for the series are no longer with us. To make this invaluable information available to the show’s fans world-wide, Robert has expanded the J2RM into a series of Lost in Space Design books. This first one covers the creation of the original pilot episode, No Place to Hide.
