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

    Springer 2006; US$ 219.00

    Putting spacecraft propulsion systems in perspective, this book presents the need to break free from the old established concepts of expendable rockets, using chemical propulsion, and to develop breeds of launch vehicle capable of both launching payloads into orbit at dramatically reduced cost, and for sustained operations in low-Earth orbit. more...

  • Rocket and Spacecraft Propulsionby Martin J.L. Turner

    Springer 2008; US$ 189.00

    Covers topics that range from the basic principles of rocket propulsion and vehicle dynamics through the theory and practice of liquid and solid propellant motors, to future developments. This book provides an exposition of the principles and practice of rocket propulsion. more...

  • Solar Sailsby Giovanni Vulpetti; Les Johnson; Gregory L. Matloff

    Springer 2009; US$ 27.50

    Solar sail propulsion will make space exploration more affordable and offer access to destinations within (and beyond) the solar system. This book describes solar sails and how they work. It discusses the plans for solar sails and also describes how advanced technology, such as nanotechnology, might enhance solar-sail performance. more...

  • Nuclear Rocket Engine Reactorby Anatoly Lanin

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    This monograph recounts and details the development of a nuclear rocket engine reactor (NRER). In particular, it explains the working capacity of an active zone NRER under mechanical and thermal load, intensive neutron fluxes, and high-energy generation (up to 30 MBT/l) in a working medium (hydrogen) at temperatures up to 3100 K. The design principles... more...

  • Dr. Spaceby Bob Ward

    Naval Institute Press 2013; US$ 19.95

    Written by veteran aerospace journalist Bob Ward, who spent years investigating his subject, this biography presents a revealing but even-handed portrait of the father of modern rocketry. As he chronicles Wernher von Braun's life, Ward explodes many myths and misconceptions about the controversial genius who was a hero to some, a villain to others.... more...

  • Radiophysical and Geomagnetic Effects of Rocket Burn and Launch in the Near-the-Earth Environmentby Leonid F. Chernogor; Nathan Blaunstein

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 149.95

    Radiophysical and Geomagnetic Effects of Rocket Burn and Launch in the Near-the-Earth Environment describes experimental and theoretical studies on the effects of rocket burns and launchings on the near-the-Earth environment and geomagnetic fields. It illuminates the main geophysical and radiophysical effects on the ionosphere and magnetosphere... more...

  • Advances in Chemical Propulsionby Gabriel D. Roy

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 241.00

    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...

  • 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...
