Spacecraft Operations

Spacecraft Operations by Florian Sellmaier
English | EPUB | 2022 | 610 Pages | ISBN : 3030885925 | 105.7 MB

This book describes the basic concepts of spacecraft operations for both manned and unmanned missions. The first part of the book provides a brief overview of the space segment. The next four parts deal with the classic areas of space flight operations: mission operations, communications and infrastructure, the flight dynamics system, and the mission planning system. This is followed by a part describing the operational tasks of the various subsystems of a classical satellite in Earth orbit. The last part describes the special requirements of other mission types due to the presence of astronauts, the approach of a satellite to another target satellite, or leaving Earth orbit in interplanetary missions and landing on other planets and moons.

Fundamentals in Nuclear Physics: From Nuclear Structure to Cosmology

Fundamentals in Nuclear Physics: From Nuclear Structure to Cosmology by Jean-Louis Basdevant
English | PDF | 2005 | 516 Pages | ISBN : 0387016724 | 5.2 MB

This course explores nuclear physics and its applications ranging from the structure of nuclei and their reactions, to astrophysics and cosmology. The physics is introduced with arguments based on simple ideas such as the empirical structure of nuclear forces and its interplay with the Pauli principle and Coulomb repulsion. The book then develops elementary nuclear models and illustrates nuclear systematics with experimental data. Reactions and decays are discussed both phenomenologically and from the point of view of fundamental electro-weak interaction theory. The discussions of fission and fusion emphasize nuclear energy production.

Mars: From Myth and Mystery to Recent Discoveries by Markus Hotakainen
English | PDF | 2009 | 274 Pages | ISBN : 0387765077 | 13.6 MB

Mars has always been shrouded in mystery. It is very difficult to resolve through a telescope. For many centuries it remained just a reddish blur in the sky. Even in ancient times, its blood-red color evoked fear and gave rise to myths and legends that are still with us today.

African Cultural Astronomy: Current Archaeoastronomy and Ethnoastronomy research in Africa by Jarita C. Holbrook
English | PDF(True) | 2008 | 257 Pages | ISBN : 1402066384 | 45.7 MB

Astronomy is the science of studying the sky using telescopes and light collectors such as photographic plates or CCD detectors. However, people have always studied the sky and continue to study the sky without the aid of instruments this is the realm of cultural astronomy. This is the first scholarly collection of articles focused on the cultural astronomy of Africans.

Alla scoperta delle galassie

Alla scoperta delle galassie by Alessandro Boselli
Italiano | PDF | 2010 | 251 Pages | ISBN : 8847011825 | 166.5 MB

"Era tempo che un’opera in italiano fosse consacrata interamente alle galassie, spiegando in modo semplice e accessibile a tutti ciò che conosciamo. È quello che è riuscito ad Alessandro Boselli, specialista di formazione stellare nelle galassie, il quale utilizza, oltre alle sue proprie osservazioni, i dati dei satelliti astronomici.

Pianeti tra le note: Appunti di un astronomo divulgatore

Pianeti tra le note: Appunti di un astronomo divulgatore by Angelo Adamo
Italiano | PDF | 2010 | 286 Pages | ISBN : 8847011841 | 84.2 MB

Una stella, otto pianeti, un centinaio di lune e una miriade di corpi minori tra plutini, asteroidi, comete, satelliti artificiali. E per ognuno di questi oggetti, spiegazioni scientifiche che condividono la scena con narrazioni dettate dal mito, con visioni della fanstascienza e con suggestioni sonore scaturite dalla penna di grandi compositori. L'autore prova a districarsi nella babele di idiomi più o meno precisi che da sempre vengono usati dagli uomini per descrivere il Sistema Solare nell'intento di spiegarlo e di rendere il freddo spazio interplanetario un posto più accogliente. La letteratura, la fisica, il fumetto, l'illustrazione, la musica finalmente cooperano per delineare un possibile percorso, una traiettoria fra le tante, che condurrà il lettore dalle origini del linguaggio fino alla nube di Oort.

Come si osserva il Sole: Metodi e tecniche per l'astronomo non professionista by Jamey L. Jenkins
Italiano | PDF | 2010 | 246 Pages | ISBN : 8847016266 | 3.9 MB

Solo fino a vent’anni fa, un filmato dell’attività cromosferica della nostra stella, dell’evoluzione di una protuberanza o di un gruppo di macchie, era prerogativa dell’astronomo professionista, dotato di un telescopio di buon diametro sito in un Osservatorio solare d’alta quota. Ai nostri giorni, i progressi dell’elettronica e dell’informatica mettono l’astrofilo nelle condizioni di realizzarlo da sé, con un telescopio amatoriale e un’economica webcam. Questo libro, mentre aggiorna l’astrofilo sulle più recenti tecniche nello studio del Sole, rappresenta un ottimo trattato sulla nostra stella, sul suo funzionamento, sulle fenomenologie che interessano la sua atmosfera. Lo stile è divulgativo, ma rigoroso. I consigli osservativi sono frutto di una ventennale esperienza dell’autore quale membro del Sunspot Program dell’AAVSO.

La fine dei cieli di cristallo: L’astronomia al bivio del ‘600 by Roberto Buonanno
Italiano | PDF | 2010 | 228 Pages | ISBN : 8847014972 | 1.4 MB

Questo libro parla del rapporto fra Galileo e alcuni scienziati della sua epoca comunemente considerati come esponenti dello "schieramento avverso". È l’epoca in cui la visione del cosmo cambia radicalmente: la cultura europea non appare più al centro della storia umana, la creazione dell’uomo si sposta all’indietro di una inimmaginabile quantità di anni e, infine, i cieli immutabili della cosmologia aristotelica, i cieli di cristallo, vengono definitivamente superati.

Protection of Materials and Structures From the Space Environment

Protection of Materials and Structures From the Space Environment by Jacob Kleiman
English | PDF | 2013 | 606 Pages | ISBN : 3642302289 | 28.9 MB

The goals of the 10th International Space Conference on “Protection of Materials and Structures from Space Environment” ICPMSE-10J, since its inception in 1992, have been to facilitate exchanges between members of the various engineering and science disciplines involved in the development of space materials, including aspects of LEO, GEO and Deep Space environments, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operational vehicles that are closely interrelated to disciplines of the atmospheric sciences, solar-terrestrial interactions and space life sciences.

Handbook of Bioastronautics by Laurence R. Young
English | EPUB | 2021 | 943 Pages | ISBN : 3319121928 | 62.8 MB

This comprehensive handbook serves the needs of biomedical researchers, space mission planners and engineers, aerospace medicine physicians, graduate students, and professors interested in obtaining an up-to-date and readable introduction to bioastronautics, the science of humans in space. Following the excitement and progress of the birth of the space age in the fifties and sixties, with the successes in human space flight – culminating with the Moon landings – the field of bioastronautics retreated into the more workmanlike arena of successively longer stays in low Earth orbit.

Alien Skies: Planetary Atmospheres from Earth to Exoplanets by Frédéric J. Pont
English | PDF(True) | 2014 | 159 Pages | ISBN : 1461485533 | 7.1 MB

Planetary atmospheres are complex and evolving entities, as mankind is rapidly coming to realise whilst attempting to understand, forecast and mitigate human-induced climate change. In the Solar System, our neighbours Venus and Mars provide striking examples of two endpoints of planetary evolution, runaway greenhouse and loss of atmosphere to space.
