Explanation of the Book:

Winner of the Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize, a breathtaking elegy to the waning days of human spaceflight as we have known it In the 1960s, humans took their first steps away from Earth, and for a time our possibilities in space seemed endless. But in a time of austerity and in the wake of high-profile disasters like Challenger, that dream has ended. In early 2011, Margaret Lazarus Dean traveled to Cape Canaveral for NASA's last three space shuttle launches in order to bear witness to the end of an era. With Dean as our guide to Florida's Space Coast and to the history of NASA, Leaving Orbit takes the measure of what American spaceflight has achieved while reckoning with its earlier witnesses, such as Norman Mailer, Tom Wolfe, and Oriana Fallaci. Along the way, Dean meets NASA workers, astronauts, and space fans, gathering possible answers to the question: What does it mean that a spacefaring nation won't be going to space anymore?

Determination of Nuclear rocket Power Levels for Unmanned Mars Vehicles Starting from Orbit about Earth

Determination of Nuclear rocket Power Levels for Unmanned Mars Vehicles Starting from Orbit about Earth

Available:
Release: 1962
Editor: Unknown
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Nuclear-powered Earth-orbital-launch probes can place greater payloads in orbit about Mars than chemical vehicles if reactor power exceeds 50 mw. Suitable reactor powers for this missionARE ABOUT 150, 400, AND 1000 MW FOR 33,000-, 81,000-, AND 200,000-LB VEHICLES, RESPECTIVELY. Whereas a 33,000-lb vehicle requires greater than a 200-day coast, a 145-day coast is feasible for an 81,000-lb vehicle. A hydrogen temperature of 4000 F in the nozzle appears to be a good compromise. Use of a solid-propellant rocket to achieve an orbit about Mars from coast yields no payload advantage. Using optimum firing dates, a 33,000-lb vehicle could orbit an acceptable payload about Mars, and an 81,000-lb vehicle could land freight on Mars. (Author).

Averaging Methods in Nonlinear Dynamical Systems

Editor: Springer Science & Business Media
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Perturbation theory and in particular normal form theory has shown strong growth in recent decades. This book is a drastic revision of the first edition of the averaging book. The updated chapters represent new insights in averaging, in particular its relation with dynamical systems and the theory of normal forms. Also new are survey appendices on invariant manifolds. One of the most striking features of the book is the collection of examples, which range from the very simple to some that are elaborate, realistic, and of considerable practical importance. Most of them are presented in careful detail and are illustrated with illuminating diagrams.

On Orbit Servicing Next Generation of Space Activities

Editor: Springer Nature
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

This book shares a range of new and diverse insights on On-Orbit Servicing (OOS), and examines its implications especially from political, legal, economic, and security perspectives. OSS has been evolving rapidly and presents both challenges and opportunities, such as in-space repairs, refuelling, refurbishment of spacecraft and servicing satellites, which could play a critical role in extending satellite lifecycles, while also representing a valuable next step in debris mitigation. At the same time, many legal questions have arisen in connection with OOS: the need to prevent hostile actions under the pretext of OSS; the distinction between governmental and non-governmental OOS operators; the status of re-worked and recycled space objects; the issue of control in terms of operations performed in orbit, i.e., in the international sphere; the status of objects manufactured in orbit and applicable law, including liability and registration; and the impacts on insurance law and risk management. Finally, the book examines the implications of OOS for emerging space actors in the Global South, and recommends a paradigm shift to help developing countries fully recognise the necessity and urgency of being involved in discussions on OSS, as opposed to leaving it up to the developed space actors. This book will be of great interest to practitioners, academics, and students working in the space sector and related fields.

Explanation of the Book:

An idea to change the atmosphere of Venus was thought of in the twentieth century by an American astronomer, Carl Sagan. He suggested it might be possible to drop algae, a micro-organism, on the upper atmosphere of Venus. This is the reason in the twenty-first century, why the space station is orbiting Planet Venus: a project that will take many years to complete. But not everyone is happy about the project. And someone is prepared to commit murder on the space station, which would leave three boys and two girls, along with a crewmember, to find a way to survive until help arrived.

Explanation of the Book:

Art Greer-Assistant to the General Presbyter, The Presbytery of New Covenant Presbyterian Church (U.S. A.) When parents came to me, having discovered their child was involved in drugs, and asked, "What in the word do I do now?", my answer was simple: "See John Cates!" It still is. Barring that, this book, Recovering Our Children, is the next best thing! Phil Lineberger-Pastor of William Trace Baptist Church of Houston, Texas and Past President of the Baptist General Convention of Texas Recovering Our Children is a winner. John Cates and Jennifer Cummings draw upon their education and experience to help parents recognize the evidence of a young person's abuse of chemicals, to help the parents and young person reach out to those who can help, and to help the parents and young person reclaim control of their own lives. This book will serve as a valuable and encouraging tool for those who have reached the end of their rope. I highly recommend Recovering Our Children Patricia Creer-Past President of the Texas Association of Addiction Professionals Recovering Our Children, derived from experience with thousands of children and their families is reflective of the hard earned lessons of professionals who have intervened in a personal way for a number of years. I hope that this book will reach many in need, for it will help them. But I also hope that those who compose the community that will nurture Alternative Peer Groups will read it and pay attention.

What he and his fellow astronauts encounter upon landing on Mars can only be described as earth-shattering. The action never stops as they encounter old rivalries from Earth now on Mars. The fate of their home planet hangs in the balance when they discover an alien force with the power to turn their spaceship and the crew to dust. An epic battle ensues when the aliens are forced to defend their own world with Jakes help.
