How Rockets and Spacecraft Are Controlled Remotely

One of the topics I'm hoping to discuss with NASA and Orbital on my upcoming visit to the Antares rocket launch is how rockets and spacecraft are controlled remotely - and how this communication is secured from tampering by outside parties.

I'm not a rocket scientist - and since this really is rocket science - I figured I should start reading up on the topic.

I found on a book from 1964 titled "Radio Control of Rockets".  The book was written by two Russian scientists and contributed to by NASA.  It discusses the theory behind remote control of a rocket.
