Title:Suborbital [electronic resource] : Industry at the Edge of Space
Author(s): Erik Seedhouse
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Until recently, spaceflight has been the providence of a select corps of astronauts whose missions, in common with all remarkable exploits, were experienced vicariously by the rest of the world via television reports and Internetfeeds. These spacefar ers risked their lives in the name of science, exploration and adventure, thanks to government-funded manned spaceflight programs. All that is about to change The nascent commercial suborbital spaceflight industrywill soon open the space frontier to comme rcial astronauts, payload specialists and, of course, spaceflight participants. Suborbital explains the tantalizing science opportunities offered when suborbital trips become routine anddescribes the difference in training and qualification necessary to b ecome either a spaceflight participant or a fully fledged commercial suborbital astronaut. Suborbital also explains how the commercial suborbital spaceflight industryis planning and preparing for the challenges of marketing the hiring of astronauts. It ex amines the role of commercial operators as enablers accessing the suborbital frontier and how a partnership with governments and the privatesector will eventually permanently integrate the free markets innovation of commercial suborbital space activities

Title:Alien Encounter [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Dirk Schulze-Makuch
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:It has been nearly 100 years since the Apollo moon landings, when Jack and Vladimir, two astronauts on a mission to Venus, discover a mysterious void related to indigenous life on the planet. Subsequently more voids are detectedon Earth, Mars, Titan, and, quite ominously, inside a planetoid emerging from the Kuiper belt. Jack is sent to investigate the voids in the Solar System and intercept the planetoid - which, as becomes increasingly clear, is inhabitedby alien life forms. Jack and his crew will have little time to understand their alien biochemistry, abilities, behavior patterns, resilience, and technology, but also how these life forms relate to the voids. Humankind's firstencounter with these exotic life forms couldn't be more fateful, becomin g a race against time to save life on Earth and to reveal the true nature of the voids, which seem to be intrinsically related to life and the universe itself. Inthis novel, the author combines many topics related to state-of-the-art research in the field of astrobiology with fictional elements to produce a thrilling page turner. This new version significantly develops the astrobiologicaldenouement of the plot and features an extensive non-technical appendix where the underlying science is presented and d iscussed. From the reviews of the first edition (Voids of Eternity: Alien Encounter) Here's a thrilling yarn inthe best hard SF tradition of Asimov, James Hogan, and Ben Bova, written by a scientist who knows all about the possibilities of life in the so lar system and beyond. Dirk Schulze-Makuch weaves into his book all the astrobiologicalthemes he's worked on in recent years -- speculation about creatures in the atmosphere of Venus and on and under the surface of Mars and Titan -- together with some wel l-informed Eastern philosophy and a cracking good space battle. Agreat first novel from a rising talent. Highly recommended. David Darling, on amazon.com, 2009 The research interests of Dr. Schulz

Title:Visual Lunar and Planetary Astronomy [electronic resource]
Author(s): Paul G Abel
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:With the advent of CCDs and webcams, the focus of amateur astronomy has to some extent shifted from science to art. The object of many amateur astronomers is now to produce stunning images that, although beautiful, are notintended to have scientific merit. Paul Abel has been addressing this issue by promoting visual astronomy wherever possible at talks to astronomical societies, in articles for popular science magazines, and on BBC TVs The Sky atNight. Visual Lunar and Planetary Astronomy is a comp rehensive modern treatment of visual lunar and planetary astronomy, showing that even in the age of space telescopes and interplanetary probes it is still possible to contributescientifically with no more than a moderately priced commercially made astrono mical telescope. It is believed that imaging and photography is somehow more objective and more accurate than the eye, and this has led to a peculiarcrisis of faith in the human visual system and its amazing processing power. But by analyzing observation s from the past, we can see how accurate visual astronomy really is! Measuring the rotational period of Mars and makingaccurate lunar charts for American astronauts were all done by eye. The book includes sections on how the human visual system works, ho w to view an object through an eyepiece, and how to record observations and keep a scientificnotebook. The book also looks at how to make an astronomical, rather than an artistic, drawing. Finally, everything here will also be of interest to those imagers who wish to make their images more scientifically applicable bycombining the methods and practices of visual astronomy with imaging

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The spaceflight industry is being revolutionized. It is no longer the sole preserve of professional astronauts working on government-funded manned spaceflight programs. As private companies are being encouraged to build andoperate launch vehicles,and even spacecraft that can be hired on a contract basis, a new breed of astronauts is coming into being. Astronauts for Hire describes how this commercial astronaut corps will be selected and trained. Itprovides a unique insight into the kinds of missions and tasks that the astronauts will be involved in, from suborbital science missions to commercial trips to low Earth orbit. The book also describes the new fleet of commercialspaceships being developed - reusable rocket-propelled vehicles that will offer quick, routine, and affordable access to the edge of space. The author also explores the possibility of private enterprise establishing interplanetaryspaceports, lunar bases, and outposts on the surface of Mars

Title:At Home in Space [electronic resource] : The Late Seventies into the Eighties
Author(s): Ben Evans

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:April 12, 2011, is the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's pioneering journey into space. To commemorate this momentous achievement, Springer-Praxis is producing a mini series of books that reveals how humanity's knowledge offlying, working, and livin g in space has grown in the last half century. At Home in Space, the third book in the series, continues the story throughout the later Seventies and into the Eighties. It was a period of time characterised bygreat promise. Regular Soviet missions demonst rated that humanity could not only survive, but thrive, in a weightless environment, and the arrival of the Space Shuttle seemed to offer a more economical and routine means of accessingthe heavens. Living in space became truly international as astronauts from many nations lived and worked together on Soviet space stations and aboard the Shuttle. At the same time, however, relations between two key players in thisdrive to conquer the high ground of space - the United States and the Soviet Union - steadily declined from the high-watermark of Apollo-Soyuz to the nadir of Star Wars. This third volume charts the progress made in space during thispivotal phase of humanity's quest to explore the final frontier

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In times of growing technological sophistication and of our dependence on electronic technology, we are all affected by space weather. In its most extreme form, space weather can disrupt communications, damage and destroyspacecraft and power stations , and increase radiation exposure to astronauts and airline passengers. Major space weather events, called geomagnetic storms, are large disruptions in the Earths magnetic field brought about by thearrival of enormous magnetized plasma clouds from the Sun . Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) contain billions of tons of plasma and hurtle through space at speeds of several million miles per hour. Understanding coronal mass ejections andtheir impact on the Earth is of great interest to both the scientific and tech nological communities. This book provides an introduction to coronal mass ejections, including a history of their observation and scientific revelations,instruments and theory behind their detection and measurement, and the status quo of theories describi ng their onset and evolution through the heliosphere. We present the story behind the life of a CME, from its magnetic field originsin the solar corona and photosphere to its eventual fate deep in the heliosphere. The intention is to provide an easily acc essible resource for those who are seeking to learn more about this fascinating and crucial naturalphenomenon

Note:To prepare for the day when astronauts leave low-Earth orbit for long-duration exploration missions, space medicine experts must develop a thorough understanding of the effects of microgravity on the human body, as well as waysof mitigating them. To gain a complete understanding of the effects of space on the human body and to create tools and technologies required for successful exploration, space medicince will become an increasingly collaborativediscipline incorporating the skills of physicians, b iomedical scientists, engineers, and mission planners. Trailblazing Medicine examines the future of space medicine in relation to human space exploration describes what is necessaryto keep a crew alive in space, including the use of surgical robots, surfa ce-based telemedicine, and remote emergency care discusses bioethical problems such as euthanasia, sex, and precautionary surgery investigates the medicalchallenges faced by interplanetary astronauts details the process of human hibernation

Title:Environmental Radiation Effects on Mammals [electronic resource] : A Dynamical Modeling Approach
Author(s): Olga A Smirnova
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text is devoted to the theoretical studies of radiation effects on mammals. It uses the framework of developed deterministic mathematical models to investigate the effects of both acute and chronic irradiation in a wide rangeof doses and dose ra tes on vital body systems including hematopoiesis, small intestine and humoral immunity, as well as on the development of autoimmune diseases. Thus, these models can contribute to the development of the system andquantitative approaches in radiation biolo gy and ecology. This text is also of practical use. Its modeling studies of the dynamics of granulocytopoiesis and thrombocytopoiesis in humans testify to the efficiency of employment of thedeveloped models in the investigation and prediction of radiation effects on these hematopoietic lines. These models, as well as the properly identified models of other vital body systems, could provide a better understanding of theradiation risks to health. The modeling predictions will enable the implementation of mo re effective preventive and protective measures for people residing in areas with elevated radiation background and astronauts on long-term spacemissions. Lastly, the models of the radiation-induced mortality established the theoretical foundations of a n ew individual-based approach to radiation risk assessment. These models thus enable one to predict the mortality dynamics andaverage life-span shortening for individuals and populations exposed to acute and low-level chronic radiation. Because of its theo retical and practical benefits, this book is as useful for academics, scientists and researchers workingin the field of mathematical modeling of biological systems as it is for those working in the fields of radiation biology, ecology and medicine. It is equally useful for Aerospace companies and various corporations that contend withthe problems of environmental protection and radiation safety

Jean Bornarel
Date:2006
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Our planet exists within a space environment affected by constantly changing solar atmosphere producing cosmic particles and electromagnetic waves. This space weather profoundly influences the performance of our technologybecause we primarily use two means for transmitting information and energy namely, electromagnetic waves and electricity. On an everyday basis, we have developed methods to cope with the normal conditions. However, the sun remains afiery star whose 'angry' outbursts can potentially destroy spacecrafts, kill astronauts, melt electricity transformers, stop trains, and generally wreak havoc with human activities. Space Weather is the developing field withinastronomy that aims at predicting the suns violent activity and minimizing the i mpacts on our daily lives. Space Weather, Environment, and Societies explains why our technological societies are so dependent on solar activity and howthe Sun disturbs the transmission of information and energy. Footnotes expand specific points and the a ppendices facilitate a more thorough command of the physics involved.

Note:Space exploration has developed from early, unmanned space probes through the pioneering years of the Manned Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions, to missions that now include women in the crew as a matter of course. DaveShayler tells the story of th e first woman balloonist in 1784 to their breakthrough as astronauts and cosmonauts in a range of professional roles. He covers the contribution women have made to space exploration and draws on interviewswith Shuttle and Mir crew members who were women. These interviews detail the achievements of the first female Shuttle commander and the first female resident crew member of the International Space Station. These and many other eventsare presented in a detailed and highly readable account that recalls th e difficult path to space exploration by women
