Earth
From the Foreword by Michael Carlowicz: From its origins, NASA has studied our planet in novel ways, using ingenious tools to study physical processes at work—from beneath the crust to the edge of the atmosphere. We look at it in macrocosm and microcosm, from the flow of one mountain stream to the flow of jet streams. Most of all, we look at Earth as a system, examining the cycles and processes—the water cycle, the carbon cycle, ocean circulation, the movement of heat—that interact and influence each other in a complex, dynamic dance across seasons and decades. For all of the dynamism and detail we can observe from orbit, sometimes it is worth stepping back and simply admiring Earth. It is a beautiful, awe-inspiring place, and it is the only world most of us will ever know.

Economic Development of Low Earth Orbit book cover
This collection of papers identifies a number of important policy questions that will be of rising importance as NASA transitions human spaceflight in LEO to the private sector, as well as a number of economic analysis methods for addressing those questions. Life off of the Earth is a new field of social and economic organization that will have vast implications for our evolution and our future. Economic development in orbit is necessary for that future growth. It is our hope that this volume may serve to guide decisions and spark the intellectual curiosity of space policy makers, NASA program managers, economic researchers, and all others interested in the continued economic development of human spaceflight.

Escaping the Bonds of Earth: The Fifties and the Sixties
To commemorate the momentous 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's pioneering journey into space on 12th April 2011, a series of five books - to be published annually - will explore this half century, decade by decade, to discover how humanity's knowledge of flying, working and living in space has changed. Each volume will focus not only upon the individual missions within 'its' decade, but also upon the key challenges facing human space exploration at specific points within those 50 years: from the simple problems of breathing and eating in space to the challenges of venturing outside in a pressurised spacesuit and locomotion on the Moon. The first volume of this series will focus upon the 1960s, exploring each mission from April 1961 to April 1971 in depth: from the pioneering Vostok flights to the establishment of the first Salyut space station and from Alan Shepard's modest sub-orbital 'hop' into space to his triumphant arrival at the Moon's Fra Mauro foothills almost a decade later.

Exploring Space
Throughout history, people have tried to understand Earth's place in the universe and what else, if anything, is 'out there'. This common human curiosity has led to great discoveries, from astrologers in ancient Babylon and Egypt who sought to link the strange planetary paths through the night sky to human behavior, to the 17th century when Galileo turned his first telescope on the night sky, to the 21st century when robotic explorers landed on Mars. ""Exploring Space, Revised Edition"" offers extensive coverage of human explorations into space - from 19th-century fantasy to 20th-century achievement and the future of space exploration in the 21st century - giving up-to-date information about the current state of exploration in the final frontier. Coverage of this title includes: native American astronomy; the U.S.-Soviet 'race to the moon' in the 1960s; how astronomers began to realize that Earth was only one of several planets; the challenges NASA has faced, such as the explosions of the Challenger and the Columbia Development of space stations; and, an examination of the future of space exploration.

Facing the Heat Barrier: A History of Hypersonics
Hypersonics is the study of flight at speeds where aerodynamic heating dominates the physics of the problem. Typically this is Mach 5 and higher. Hypersonics is an engineering science with close links to supersonics and engine design. Within this field, many of the most important results have been experimental. The principal facilities have been wind tunnels and related devices, which have produced flows with speeds up to orbital velocity.

Flight research : problems encountered and what they should teach US
The document by Milt Thompson that is reproduced here was an untitled rough draft found in Thompson's papers in the Dryden Historical Reference Collection. Internal evidence suggests that it was written about 1974. Readers need to keep this date in mind, since Milt writes in the present tense. Apparently, he never edited the document. Had he prepared it for publication, he would have done lots of editing and refined much of what he said.

Global Reach: A View of NASA's International Cooperation
When the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was created in 1958, its founding legislation—the National Aeronautics and Space Act—directed the new Agency to pursue cooperation “with other nations and groups of nations.” This principle of international cooperation has been a guiding philosophy for NASA, and it has never been more important than it is today. Such collaboration will be essential to addressing the inherently global and interrelated scientific challenges that will face us in the years ahead: expanding human exploration beyond the frontiers of low-Earth orbit; broadening human knowledge by answering profound questions about the Earth and the universe we live in; solving technical issues related to air traffic management, aviation safety, and the impact of aviation on climate and the environment; and leveraging technology investments to push the boundaries of innovation. Through the pages of this publication, learn more about NASA’s continuing international partnerships. These examples will provide you with a sense of the breadth of NASA’s cooperation with other nations, as well as the accompanying benefits that such cooperation has always yielded.

Historical Studies in the Societal Impact of Spaceflight
This volume presents a series of in-depth studies on the mutual interaction of space exploration and society—part of a larger need to understand the relationships between science, technology, and society. After beginning with a study of public attitudes toward space over time, it then moves on to specific case studies of potential “spinoffs” from NASA’s space program in the areas of medical technology, integrated circuits, and the multibillion-dollar industry today known as MEMS (microelectromechanical systems). These studies explicitly raise the difficult questions of what can be considered spinoff and how much of any particular claimed spinoff can be attributed to NASA. Beyond spinoffs, the final part of the volume considers broader issues of space and society, including the controversy over the use of nuclear components in spacecraft, the relationship between NASA and the environment, the impact of applications satellites, and the impact of the Apollo program. Space exploration has also spawned entirely new disciplines, including astrogeology, astrochemistry, and even astrotheology. The final chapter explores the budding discipline of astrosociology.

Historical Analogs for the Stimulation of Space Commerce
With the rise of a range of private-sector entrepreneurial firms interested in pursuing space commerce, the process whereby their efforts might be incubated, fostered, and expanded comes to the fore as an important public policy concern in a way never before present in the Space Age. In the United States we are witnessing the convergence of several powerful economic forces, including the need to restore American capability to reach low-Earth orbit (LEO) for the servicing of the International Space Station (ISS) and the rise of a hospitality/tourism/entertainment industry interested in space. Through these case studies, we explore how to apply more effectively already-tested models of government support for commercial activities, as well as the interactions of both the public and private spheres in a new opportunity zone in space. In each case, a summation yields a range of key points.

How to survive in spaceТом 1
As part of our celebrations for the 50th anniversary of ESA’s mission control centre in Darmstadt, Germany, we are pleased to make available the delightful ESOC history, How to Survive in Space, as a two-part downloadable eBook. The two volumes were penned by former ESA staff member Madeleine Schäfer as a wry, often-humorous personal recounting of the events and people at ESOC through its initial years, and end in 1997. Madeleine was the 6th person recruited, and in 1964 joined the-then new European Space Data Centre, which was renamed ESOC and inaugurated as such in new facilities on the west side of Darmstadt in September 1967.

It's ONLY Rocket Science: An Introduction in Plain English
"Well, it’s not rocket science, is it?" How many times have you heard people use that expression when they mean something pretty simple? There are other areas of science and technology that are arguably more challenging than rocket science, but no other (perhaps apart from brain surgery) has entered mainstream English vocabulary as a byword for ‘difficult’. But ‘hard to understand’ isn’t the same as ‘impossible to understand’, as Dr Lucy Rogers – who is herself currently working as a rocket scientist – shows in this book. She describes, in everyday terms and entirely without complex math, just what is involved in launching something into space, to explore the universe beyond our small planet. If you want to understand the fundamentals of space flight, from how to leave the Earth – including the design of the rocket and vehicle, mission planning, navigation and communication – to life in space and the effects of weightlessness, begin your journey here.

Mach 3+: NASA/USAF YF-12 Flight Research, 1969-1979 / Самолет NASA / ВВС США YF-12.
During the 1950s. American aircraft designers emphasized configurations that flew increasingly high and fast, a trend that continued for nearly two decades. Then, during rhe 1970s, efficiency, noise reduction, and fuel economy also became important considerations, in part because military analysts no longer deemed speed and altitude the paramount capabilities necessary to ensure national security. Among the aircraft designs that transitioned from paper to hardware during the high-speed era, the Lockheed Blackbirds hold a unique place. The A-12, YF-12A, M-21. D-21, and SR-71 variants outperformed all other jet airplanes in terms of altitude and speed. To this day, they remain the only production aircraft capable of sustained cruise in excess of Mach 3. Developed in utmost secrecy, they eventually became some of the world's most famous aircraft. История исследовательских полетов третьего самолета YF-12 в период с 1969 по 1979. YF-12 - прототип стратегического сверхзвукового разведчика ВВС США SR-71 «Blackbird».
