Rocket propulsion. Rockets

  • 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...

  • Advances in Solar Sailingby Malcolm Macdonald

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book presents the best contributions of the the Third International Symposium on Solar Sailing Glasgow, 11 ? 13 June 2013. It is a rapid snap-shot of the state-of-the art of solar sail technology in 2013 across the globe, capturing flight programs, technology development programs and new technology and application concepts. The book contains contributions... 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. Lessons include information on the beginning of rocketry and explanations of basic scientific principles of rocket flight. Featuring scientific experiments for students, language activities-even a dramatic play (based on the science of... more...

  • The Conversion of Liquid Rocket Fuelsby Wolfgang Spyra

    Springer 2004; US$ 89.99

    The Conversion of Liquid Rocket Fuels is the first volume to be dedicated to the demilitarization of Azerbaijan. It is the product of an exciting workshop which brought together participants from NATO member countries and partner countries to share ideas and experience. This publication investigates the possible treatment methods for hazardous ballistic... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Fundamentals of Electric Propulsionby Dan M. Goebel; Ira Katz

    Wiley 2008; US$ 157.00

    Throughout most of the twentieth century, electric propulsion was considered the technology of the future. Now, the future has arrived. This important new book explains the fundamentals of electric propulsion for spacecraft and describes in detail the physics and characteristics of the two major electric thrusters in use today, ion and Hall thrusters.... more...

  • 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...
