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...

The ARTEMIS Mission
The ARTEMIS Mission

The ARTEMIS mission was initiated by skillfully moving the two outermost Earth-orbiting THEMIS spacecraft into lunar orbit to conduct unprecedented dual spacecraft observations of the lunar environment. ARTEMIS stands for Acceleration, Reconnection, Turbulence and Electrodynamics of the Moon's Interaction with the Sun. Indeed, this volume...

The Handbook of Advanced Materials: Enabling New Designs
The Handbook of Advanced Materials: Enabling New Designs

The use of improved materials enables engineers to design new and better products and processes. Benefits include increased sales of improved products and, where new materials are used in manufacturing, reduced plant cost. Society benefits through the use of improved products that use these new materials.

Sophisticated new...

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...

Future Spacecraft Propulsion Systems: Enabling Technologies for Space Exploration (Springer Praxis Books / Astronautical Engineering)

In this second edition of Future Spacecraft Propulsion Systems, the authors demonstrate the need to break free from the old established concepts of expendable rockets, using chemical propulsion, and to develop new breeds of launch vehicle capable of both launching payloads into orbit at a dramatically reduced cost and for sustained operations in...

How Spacecraft Fly: Spaceflight Without Formulae
How Spacecraft Fly: Spaceflight Without Formulae
The aim of this popular science text is to explain aerodynamic and astrodynamic flight without the use of mathematics, in an informal style, for non-technical readers who are interested in spaceflight and spacecraft.

The book will open with a concise introductory chapter, chronicling the ‘space age’ up to the present, and a brief...

Reflectarray Antennas
Reflectarray Antennas
Describes the configuration and principles of a reflectarray antenna, its advantages over other antennas, the history of its development, analysis techniques, practical design procedures, bandwidth issues and wideband techniques, as well as applications and recent developments. Both authors are well respected practitioners who have build these...

Analytical Mechanics of Space Systems (AIAA Education)

KINEMATICS is a branch of dynamics that studies aspects of motion apart from considerations of masses and forces. Essentially, Kinematics is a collection of vector/matrix methods to describe positions, velocities and accelerations of particles and rigid bodies, as viewed from various reference frames. The sub- eld of Particle Kinematics...
