  • Advanced Space Propulsion Systemsby Martin Tajmar

    Springer Vienna 2012; US$ 49.99

    Space propulsion systems have a great influence on our ability to travel to other planets or how cheap a satellite can provide TV programs. This book provides an up-to-date overview of all kinds of propulsion systems ranging from classical rocket technology, nuclear propulsion to electric propulsion systems, and further to micro-, propellantless and... more...

  • Advances in Chemical Propulsionby Gabriel D. Roy

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 253.00

    Complex, vast, and multidisciplinary, chemical propulsion has been the subject of extensive investigation over the past few decades. Under the leadership of Gabriel Roy, this has been particularly true at the Office of Naval Research (ONR), where his team has focused on the three primary goals of combustion research: improving the efficiency, increasing... more...

  • Advances in Solar Sailingby Malcolm Macdonald

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book presents the best contributions from the Third International Symposium on Solar Sailing Glasgow,  June 2013. It examines flight programs, technology development programs and new technology and application concepts. more...

  • Blast Off! Rocketry for Elementary and Middle School Studentsby Leona Nielsen

    ABC-CLIO 1997; US$ 25.00

    Packed with fascinating facts and motivational activities, this book helps you create a thematic unit on rocketry.

  • European Identity through Spaceby Christophe Venet; Blandina Baranes

    Springer Vienna 2012; US$ 169.00

    Space activities are one particularly visible area where Europe can shape its identity. This book examines the hard sciences, policy, cultural science and the arts to identify creative ways that space can be used to help shape the European identity. more...

  • Fast Solar Sailingby Giovanni Vulpetti

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 209.00

    This book details how to plan, compute and optimize the trajectories of sailcraft with speeds higher than 100 km/s; such sailcraft would be able to explore the far-reaches of space in times significantly shorter than the average career, around 35 years. more...

  • Future Spacecraft Propulsion Systemsby Claudio Bruno; Bernd Chudoba

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 219.00

    In 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 dramatically reduced cost, and for sustained operations in low-Earth orbit. The next... more...

  • Future Spacecraft Propulsion Systemsby Claudio Bruno; Paul A. Czysz

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 299.00

    Once again comprehensive and authoritative, this second edition puts spacecraft propulsion systems in perspective, from earth orbit launchers to astronomical/space exploration vehicles. It includes new material on fusion propulsion, new figures and updates. more...

  • Non-Rocket Space Launch and Flightby Alexander Bolonkin

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 310.00

    In recent years scientists have investigated a series of new methods for non-rocket space launch, which promise to revolutionize space launches and flight. Particularly in the current political climate new, cheaper, and more ?fuel efficient? methods are being investigated. Such new methods include the gas tube method, cable accelerators, tether launch... more...
