Rocket propulsion. Rockets

  • 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...
