Rocket propulsion. Rockets

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

    Taylor and Francis 2014; 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Deep Space Propulsionby K. F. Long

    Springer 2011; US$ 44.95

    The technology of the next few decades could possibly allow us to explore with robotic probes the closest stars outside our Solar System, and maybe even observe some of the recently discovered planets circling these stars. This book looks at the reasons for exploring our stellar neighbors and at the technologies we are developing to build space probes... more...

  • Rocket Propulsion Elementsby George P. Sutton; Oscar Biblarz

    Wiley 2011; US$ 140.00

    The definitive text on rocket propulsion—now revised to reflect advancements in the field For sixty years, Sutton's Rocket Propulsion Elements has been regarded as the single most authoritative sourcebook on rocket propulsion technology. As with the previous edition, coauthored with Oscar Biblarz, the Eighth Edition of Rocket Propulsion... more...

  • Advances in Chemical Propulsionby Gabriel D. Roy

    Taylor and Francis 2010; 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...
