How Does a Spacecraft Reach the Moon? (Science in the Real World)
How Does a Spacecraft Reach the Moon? (Science in the Real World)

The Moon is very far from Earth. Yet, scientists have been able to get satellites, shuttles, and other spacecraft into space and a few manned spacecraft to land on the Moon. "How Does a Spacecraft Reach the Moon?" reveals the science behind propulsion and the energy it takes to get large craft into space. Colorful photographs and...

Encyclopedia of the Solar System, Second Edition
Encyclopedia of the Solar System, Second Edition
Long before Galileo published his discoveries about Jupiter, lunar craters, and the Milky Way in the Starry Messenger in 1610, people were fascinated with the planets and stars around them. That interest continues today, and scientists are making new discoveries at an astounding rate. Ancient lake beds on Mars, robotic spacecraft missions, and...
Plasma Engineering: Applications from Aerospace to Bio and Nanotechnology
Plasma Engineering: Applications from Aerospace to Bio and Nanotechnology

Plasma engineering applies the unique properties of plasmas (ionized gases) to improve processes and performance over many fields, such as materials processing, spacecraft propulsion, and nanofabrication. Plasma Engineering considers this rapidly expanding discipline from a unified standpoint, addressing fundamentals of physics and...

Systems Engineering with SysML/UML: Modeling, Analysis, Design (The OMG Press)
Systems Engineering with SysML/UML: Modeling, Analysis, Design (The OMG Press)
According to the Boeing Commercial Aircraft Company, a Boeing 747-400 aircraft has a maximum gross take-off weight (including a typical 416 passengers, 171 cubic meters of freight in the cargo hold, and over 200,000 kg of fuel) of nearly 400,000 kg. Four behemoth engines push the bird at up to 88 percent of the speed of sound for unbelievable...
MEMS and Microstructures in Aerospace Applications
MEMS and Microstructures in Aerospace Applications

The promise of MEMS for aerospace applications has been germinating for years, and current advances bring the field to the very cusp of fruition. Reliability is chief among the challenges limiting the deployment of MEMS technologies in space, as the requirement of zero failure during the mission is quite stringent for this burgeoning field....

Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles
Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles

Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles discusses hydrodynamic aspects of the three main categories of high-speed marine vehicles, i.e. vessels supported by either the submerged hull, an air cushion or foils. Submerged-hull-supported vessels include planing and semi-displacement vessels. The wave environment, resistance, propulsion,...
