By Jonathan Allday

This booklet takes a retrospective examine the Apollo area application and the know-how that was once used to land a guy at the Moon. Jonathan Allday's goals are to provide an explanation for the elemental physics and expertise of spaceflight, and to show the massive technological strides that have been made and the commitment of the folk engaged on this system. Physics issues coated comprise the legislation of movement, rocketry, the right way to manouver in orbit and so on. The designs of the Apollo Command, carrier and Lunar modules are mentioned and the way those replaced because the plans for the manned undertaking developed. suggestions platforms, pcs and engines all needed to be constructed for the 1st time. With Apollo as historical past, the e-book is going directly to examine the distance commute, the know-how being built for its substitute, the foreign house Station and the chances for a manned Mars project. eventually, the a long way destiny is taken into account, together with Mars colonies and trips to different stars.
__________В этой книге даётся ретроспективный взгляд на космическую программу "Аполлон" и технологии, которые были использованы для высадки человека на Луну. Джонатан Олдей разъясняет физические и технологические основы космических полётов, рассказывает об огромных технологических успехах и самоотверженности людей, работавших в рамках этой программы. В книге рассматриваются законы движения, принципы ракетостроения, способы маневрирования на орбите и многое другое. Описывается конструкция служебно-командного и лунного модулей КК "Аполлон" и то, как она менялась по ходу программы. Заключительные главы посвящены космическому шаттлу, Международной космической станции и планам пилотируемых полётов на Марс, включая его колонизацию.

Soviet Space Mythologies: Public Images, Private Memories, and the Making of a Cultural Identity

From the beginning, the Soviet human area application had an id obstacle. have been cosmonauts heroic pilots guidance their craft during the risks of area, or have been they mere passengers driving thoroughly aboard absolutely automatic machines? Tensions among Soviet cosmonauts and house engineers have been mirrored not just within the inner improvement of the gap software but additionally in Soviet propaganda that wavered among praising bold heroes and faultless applied sciences.
