  • European Identity through Spaceby Christophe Venet; Blandina Baranes

    Springer 2012; US$ 169.00

    Space activities are one particularly visible area, where Europe can shape its identity. This publication investigates the effect space activities have already had on building a European "spirit" (e.g. through European missions or European astronauts). It also looks into the effects that activities labelled "national" have on the... more...

  • Fast Solar Sailingby Giovanni Vulpetti

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    The range of solar sailing is very vast; it is a fully in-space means of propulsion that should allow us to accomplish various mission classes that are literally impossible using rocket propulsion, no matter if nuclear or electric. Fast and very fast solar sailings are special classes of sailcraft missions, initially developed only in the first half... more...
