Handbook of Space Technology pdf

Book Description:

Twenty years since the first edition was published in the German language and just over fifty years since the launch of the Earth’s first-ever artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, this third edition of the Handbook of Space Technology presents, for the first time in the English language, a detailed insight into the fascinating world of space in fully integrated color. Authored by over 70 leading experts from universities, research institutions, and the space industry, this comprehensive handbook describes the processes and methodologies behind the development, construction, operation, and utilization of space systems, presenting the profound changes that have occurred in recent years in the engineering, materials, processes, and even politics associated with space technologies and utilization. The individual chapters are self-contained, enabling the reader to gain a quick and reliable overview of a selected field; an extensive reference and keyword list help those who wish to deepen their understanding of particular topics. Featuring superb full-color illustrations and photographs throughout, this interdisciplinary reference contains practical, hands-on engineering and planning information that will be invaluable to those on a career path within space technology or simply to those who’d like to know more about this fascinating industry. The main section headings include: Introduction (historical overview, space missions) Fundamentals (orbital mechanics, aerothermodynamics/reentry, space debris) Launch Vehicles (staging technologies, propulsion systems, launch infrastructure) Space Vehicle Subsystems (structure, energy supply, thermal controls, attitude control, communication) Aspects of Human Flight (man in space, life support systems, rendezvous, and docking) Mission Operations (satellite operation, control center, ground station network) Utilization of Space (Earth observation, communication navigation, space astronomy, material sciences, space medicine, robotics) Configuration and Design of a Space Vehicle (mission concept, system concept, environment simulation, system design, Galileo satellites) Management of Space Missions (Project Management, Quality Management, Cost Management, Space Law)
