Assembling and Supplying the ISS: The Space Shuttle Fulfills Its Mission By David J. Shayler
English | PDF | 2017 | 369 Pages | ISBN : 3319404415 | 21.57 MB

The creation and utilization of the International Space Station (ISS) is a milestone in space exploration. But without the Space Shuttle, it would have remained an impossible dream. Assembling and Supplying the ISS is the story of how, between 1998 and 2011, the Shuttle became the platform which enabled the construction and continued operation of the primary scientific research facility in Earth orbit.

Exploring the Martian Moons: A Human Mission to Deimos and Phobos By Manfred “Dutch” von Ehrenfried
English | EPUB | 2017 | 271 Pages | ISBN : 3319526995 | 7.03 MB

This book explores the once popular idea of 'Flexible Path' in terms of Mars, a strategy that would focus on a manned orbital mission to Mars's moons rather than the more risky, expensive and time-consuming trip to land humans on the Martian surface. While currently still not the most popular idea, this mission would take advantage of the operational, scientific and engineering lessons to be learned from going to Mars's moons first.

Women Spacefarers: Sixty Different Paths to Space By Umberto Cavallaro
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 434 Pages | ISBN : 3319340476 | 36.28 MB

This book tells the fascinating stories of the valiant women who broke down barriers to join the space program. Beginning with the orbital flight of USSR cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova in 1963, they became players in the greatest adventure of our time. The author contextualizes their accomplishments in light of the political and cultural climate, from the Cold War in the background to the changing status of women in society at large during the Seventies.

Next Stop Mars: The Why, How, and When of Human Missions By Giancarlo Genta
English | PDF | 2017 | 435 Pages | ISBN : 3319443100 | 16.82 MB

This book covers the possible manned mission to Mars first discussed in the 1950s and still a topic of much debate, addressing historic and future plans to visit the Red Planet. Considering the environmental dangers and the engineering and design needed for a successful trip, it covers every aspect of a possible mission and outpost. The chapters explain the motivations behind the plan to go to Mars, as well as the physical factors that astronauts on manned missions will face on Mars and in transit.

Spaceplane HERMES: Europe's Dream of Independent Manned Spaceflight

Spaceplane HERMES: Europe's Dream of Independent Manned Spaceflight By Luc van den Abeelen
English | EPUB | 2017 | 588 Pages | ISBN : 3319444700 | 14.55 MB

This is the first comprehensive book on the European Hermes program. It tells the fascinating story of how Europe aimed for an independent manned spaceflight capability which was to complement US and Soviet/Russian space activities. In 1975, France decided to expand its plans for automated satellites for materials processing to include the development of a small 10 ton spaceplane to be launched on top of a future heavy-lifting Ariane rocket.

Exploring the Moon: The Apollo Expeditions, Second Edition

Exploring the Moon: The Apollo Expeditions, Second Edition By David M. Harland
English | PDF | 2008 | 447 Pages | ISBN : 0387746382 | 48.3 MB

David Harland opens with a review of the robotic probes, namely the Rangers which returned television before crashing into the Moon, the Surveyors which 'soft landed' in order to investigate the nature of the surface, and the Lunar Orbiters which mapped prospective Apollo landing sites. He then outlines the historic landing by Apollo 11 in terms of what was discovered, and how over the next several missions the program was progressively geared up to enable the final three missions each to spend three days on comprehensive geological investigations.

Planetary Systems: Detection, Formation and Habitability of Extrasolar Planets

Planetary Systems: Detection, Formation and Habitability of Extrasolar Planets By Marc Ollivier
English | PDF | 2008 | 351 Pages | ISBN : 3540757473 | 12.7 MB

Over the past ten years, the discovery of extrasolar planets has opened a new field of astronomy, and this area of research is rapidly growing, from both the observational and theoretical point of view. The presence of many giant exoplanets in the close vicinity of their star shows that these newly discovered planetary systems are very different from the solar system. New theoretical models are being developed in order to understand their formation scenarios, and new observational methods are being implemented to increase the sensitivity of exoplanet detections.
