    In this real life spy saga, James E. David reveals the extensive and largely hidden interactions between NASA and U.S. defense and intelligence departments. The story begins with the establishment of NASA in 1958 and follows the agency through its growth, not only in scope but also in complexity. In Spies and Shuttles , David digs through newly... more...

  • Flight Dynamicsby Robert F. Stengel

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 99.50

    Flight Dynamics takes a new approach to the science and mathematics of aircraft flight, unifying principles of aeronautics with contemporary systems analysis. While presenting traditional material that is critical to understanding aircraft motions, it does so in the context of modern computational tools and multivariable methods. Robert Stengel... more...

  • INS/CNS/GNSS Integrated Navigation Technologyby Wei Quan; Jianli Li; Xiaolin Gong; Jiancheng Fang

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 0.00

    This book not only introduces the principles of INS, CNS and GNSS, the related filters and semi-physical simulation, but also systematically discusses the key technologies needed for integrated navigations of INS/GNSS, INS/CNS, and INS/CNS/GNSS, respectively. INS/CNS/GNSS integrated navigation technology has established itself as an effective tool... more...

  • Wingless Flightby R. Dale Reed; Darlene Lister

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 34.95

    Most lifting bodies, or "flying bathtubs" as they were called, were so ugly only an engineer could love them, and yet, what an elegant way to keep wings from burning off in supersonic flight between earth and orbit. Working in their spare time (because they couldn't initially get official permission), Dale Reed and his team of engineers demonstrated... more...

  • Thermal Convection, Magnetic Field, and Differential Rotation in Solar-type Starsby Hideyuki Hotta

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis describes the studies on the solar interior where turbulent thermal convection plays an important role. The author solved, for the first time, one of the long-standing issues in solar physics, i.e., the maintenance mechanism of the solar differential rotation in the near-surface shear layer. The author attacked this problem with a newly... more...

  • Expanding the Envelopeby Michael H. Gorn

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Expanding the Envelope is the first book to explore the full panorama of flight research history, from the earliest attempts by such nineteenth century practitioners as England's Sir George Cayley, who tested his kites and gliders by subjecting them to experimental flight, to the cutting-edge aeronautical research conducted by the NACA and NASA.... more...

  • To Reach the High Frontierby Roger D. Launius; Dennis R. Jenkins

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 70.00

    Access -- no single word better describes the primary concern of the exploration and development of space.
