Искусственный спутник Земли
В книге, написанной на основе отечественных и иностранных источников, рассказывается о создании и запуске в СССР первых в мире искусственных спутников Земли (ИСЗ), о теоретических вопросах, которые необходимо было разрешить при этом. В ней последовательно излагаются этапы освоения космоса, начиная с осуществления необитаемого и неавтоматизированного искусственного спутника Земли и кончая изложением вопросов создания межпланетных станций и космических кораблей. Дается краткий перечень задач, которые будут решаться ИСЗ и космическими станциями. Приведено описание нескольких проектов искусственных спутников Земли, космических ракет и межпланетных станций. Рассмотрены принципы управления и астроориентировки ИСЗ во время его полета по орбите. Дано описание ряда важнейших приборов, установленных на спутнике. Книга рассчитана на воинов Советской Армии, Авиации и Флота, поэтому в ней уделено внимание описанию военного значения ИСЗ и межпланетных станций. В целом автор стремился не перегружать книгу техническими подробностями и излагал материал в возможно более популярной и доступной для широкого читателя форме.

A-1: The First French Satellite
"26 ноября 1965 года с момента полета первой французской РН "Диамант" Франция стала - после СССР и США - третьей страной, запустившей спутник, построенный собственной промышленностью и запущенный национальной РН. В 1995 году праздновалось 30-летие, кажется интересной возможность вернуться ненадолго к истории мероприятия, которое было первым французским космическим предприятием в космосе".

All About History: History of NASA 2nd Edition
America's First Rocket Company: Reaction Motors, Inc.
America's First Rocket Company is the story of Reaction Motors, Inc. (RMI), the U.S.'s first liquid-propellant rocket company. Founded in December, 1941 following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, with the single-minded goal of developing the liquid-propellant rocket for the war effort, RMI was an ambitious undertaking at a time when rocket propulsion technology was in its infancy. RMI went on to accomplish some of the most significant technological breakthroughs in American aerospace history, paving the way to manned flights far beyond the speed of sound, the beginnings of manned flight into space, and development of the critically important vernier motors for the Surveyor spacecraft that became the U.S.'s first soft-landing craft on the surface of the Moon.

Apollo 1 and the Space Shuttle Challenger:The History of NASA’s Two Most Notorious Disasters
Apollo in PerspectiveSpaceflight Then and Now
This book takes a retrospective look at the Apollo space program and the technology that was used to land a man on the Moon. Jonathan Allday's aims are to explain the basic physics and technology of spaceflight, and to convey the huge technological strides that were made and the dedication of the people working on the program. Physics topics covered include the laws of motion, rocketry, how to manouver in orbit and many others. The designs of the Apollo Command, Service and Lunar modules are discussed and how these changed as the plans for the manned mission evolved. Guidance systems, computers and engines all had to be developed for the first time. With Apollo as background, the book goes on to look at the space shuttle, the technology being developed for its replacement, the International Space Station and the possibilities for a manned Mars mission. Finally, the far future is considered, including Mars colonies and journeys to other stars.
Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Preliminary Science Report
NASA TM X-58173/International cooperation was the keynote of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project. In the 3 y ears since the project was initiated in the U.S. - U .S .S .R. Agreement Concerning Cooperation in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space (signed by the U.S. and U.S.S .R. Heads of State on May 24, 1972), the great effort expended in coordination, communication, and integration culminated in the highly successful flight from July 15 to 24, 1975. The 9-day flight marked the first time that manned spacecraft of two nations have met in space for joint engineering and scientific investigations . The principal objective of the project was to develop a compatible docking system and rendezvous and crew transfer procedures that might be appropriate for future international manned space missions. This objective was successfully accomplished.

Book of Flight: The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum
The dream of flight is one of the oldest in human history. We read about it in ancient Greek mythology and visualize it through Leonardo da Vinci's sketches of flying machines. The Book of Flight traces the remarkable story of the pioneers, inventors, and daring pilots who turned that dream into a reality. Based on the outstanding collections of the National Air and Space Museum, this handsome book brings to life milestones in flight history: the development of ballooning; the earliest human gliders; the Wright Brothers' first sustained flights; Charles Lindbergh's solo trip across the Atlantic; Amelia Earhart's courageous flights; Chuck Yeager's blast through the sound barrier; the Apollo astronauts' first steps onto the moon; and the building of the International Space Station. Richly illustrated, this book takes you on an exciting journey through time. You'll watch early inventors at work, thrill to the first air races and the dogfights of World War I and II, peer inside a flying boat of the 1930s, and witness the horrific explosion of the airship Hindenburg. You'll ride in the DC-3, marvel at the technology of the stealth fighter, and experience life aboard the Space Shuttle. As you turn the pages you'll meet barnstormers and ballonists, stunt flyers and flying aces, and rocket scientists and astronauts. More than 350 photographs and illustrations portray the development of aviation and space flight. Diagrams explain concepts such as jet propulsion and supersonic flight and depict the workings of rockets and other devices. A comprehensive glossary provides easy-to-understand explanations of technical terms. The National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, with more than eight million visitors annually, is home to the world's most famous collection of historical aircraft, rockets, and space vehicles.
Cave of the Winds
The huge Langley Full-Scale Tunnel building dominated the skyline of Langley Air Force Base for 81 years (1930–2011). The Full-Scale Tunnel was constructed by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) during an era when biplanes and dirigibles dominated aviation. The results of critical tests conducted within its massive test section contributed to many of the Nation's most important aeronautics and space programs. The historical significance of the Full-Scale Tunnel was formally recognized when it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1985 by the National Park Service.
Coming Home: Reentry and Recovery from Space
The technologies for the reentry and recovery from space might change over time, but the challenge remains one of the most important and vexing in the rigorous efforts to bring spacecraft and their crews and cargo home successfully. Returning to Earth after a flight into space is a fundamental challenge, and contributions from the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate in aerodynamics, thermal protection, guidance and control, stability, propulsion, and landing systems have proven critical to the success of the human space flight and other space programs. Without this base of fundamental and applied research, the capability to fly into space would not exist. This book relates in a chronological manner the way in which NASA has approached the challenge of reentering the atmosphere after a space mission and the technologies associated with safely dealing with the friction of this encounter and the methods used for landing safely on Earth. This history seeks to tell this complex story in a compelling, sophisticated, and technically sound manner for an audience that understands little about the evolution of flight technology. Bits and pieces of this history exist in other publications, but often overlooked is the critical role these concepts played in making a safe return to Earth possible. Moreover, the challenges, mysteries, and outcomes that these programs’ members wrestled with offer object lessons in how earlier generations of engineers sought optimal solutions and made tradeoffs.
Crossbow and Overcast
Двадцать лет прошло со времён "Дня Д", эта книга об истории двух из самых важных секретных операций II мировой войны: Crossbow и Overcast. Вместе они предоставляют увлекательную историю ФАУ-2. Борьба за обладание этим нацистским секретным оружием и мозгами, которые построили его, между США, Великобританией и Россией. Crossbow (Арбалет) было кодовое название операции, в которой впервые обнаружен, а затем побежден ракетный потенциал Германии. Был также сверхсекретный план, в результате которого в конечном итоге Вернер фон Браун и другие ведущие немецкие ракетчики переправлены в США из под носа Красной Армии. Но разве мы действительно выиграли битву за мозги? Что позволило россиянам запустить спутник, а затем первыми послать человека в космос? Автор Джеймс Макговерн, американский разведчик в Германии в течение пяти послевоенных лет, написал эту книгу на основании оригинального исходного материала. Многие из документов, используемых Макговерном были засекречены. Кроме того, многие из людей (как немецких так и американских), чьи истории рассказаны здесь, известны автору лично.
Defining NASA The Historical Debate Over The Agency's Mission
Описание: Most people know that NASA is the agency of the United States that pursues space activities. Though sounding simple enough, this statement can lead to pitfalls just like in moving mountains. First off, what, or more precisely, where exactly does space begin and end? Further, what are the space activities and equipment for which NASA is responsible? Should this include all launch vehicles, launch pads, and space stations? Are only they responsible for earth observation, traveling to other planets and understanding the meaning of life? As Kay succinctly points out, there is a fine and constantly changing line that delegates duties to NASA, other parties, or to no one at all.
