Title:The Protos Mandate [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Nick Kanas M.D.
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In the 25th Century, the effects of overpopulation and global warming on Earth have led to the formation of human colonies on the Moon, Mars and elsewhere in the Solar System, yet the limited number of viable places forceshumanity to look to the star s.A crash program has been developed to send Protos 1, a giant multigenerational starship, to a newly discovered Earth-like planet orbiting a nearby star. The plan is for awake crewmembers to run the ship,and for people in suspended animation to be roused before planetfall to use their skills in exploration and colony formation. To fulfill the goals of the mission and ensure that the in-flight population does not deplete the limitedresources, the Protos Mandate is set up to govern a tightly controlled soc ial system for the duration of the journey, which will take several generations.But problems threaten to sabotage the mission during its launch and transit,and what finally awaits the crewmembers shocks them in an unpredictable way. This novel chronicles the trials and tribulations of this epic first interstellar mission. The scientific appendix at the end of the book discusses thechallenges of such an interstellar mission based on an extensive literature review, and it links these challenges to specific episodes in the novel. Issues that are considered include interstellar propulsion systems, economicconsiderations of interstellar flight, psychological and sociological factors inherent in a multigenerational space mission, problems with suspended animat ion, current knowledge of exoplanets, and issues related to colonizing a distantplanet and the possible discovery of extraterrestrial life.A history of interstellar missions in science fiction is also reviewed. Nick Kanas is an Emeritus Professor of Psyc hiatry at the University of California, San Francisco,where he directed the group therapy training program. For over 20 years he conducted research in group therapy, and for nearly 2

Title:The Hunter [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Giancarlo Genta
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The 24th century: humankind has become a spacefaring civilization, colonizing the solar system and beyond. While no alien forms of life have yet been encountered in this expansion into space, colonists suddenly encounter machinesof alien origin - hug e robots able to reproduce themselves. Called replicators by the colonists, they seem to have but a single goal: to destroy all organic life they come in contact with. Since the colonial governments have no meansto fight this menace directly, they instead promise huge rewards to whoever destroys a replicator. As a result, the frontier attracts a new kind of adventurers, the Hunters, who work to find and destroy the replicators. Mike Edwards, avvskilled young maintenance technician and robotics expert at a faraway outpost, will not only become one of them - but be the very first one to unlock the secret behind the replicators origin and mission. The scientific andtechnical aspects underlying the plot - in particular space travel, robotics and self-replica ting spacecraft - are introduced and discussed by the author in an extensive non-technical appendix. An expert in space flight technology,with a special interest in space robotics and advanced space propulsion, Giancarlo Genta is a professor in the Depart ment of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the Politecnico di Torino, in Turin, Italy. He is also director ofthe Italian SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) study center and is a full member of the International Academy of Astronautics. H e has written more than 300 scientific papers and 11 scientific books.Among his popularscience books are Space: The Final Frontier?, published by Cambridge University Press in 2002, and Lonely Minds in the Universe - The Search for Extraterrestrial Intell igence, published by Springer-Copernicus in June 2007. The Hunter,already published in Italian and Ukrainian, is his first novel

Title:Grappling with Gravity [electronic resource] : How Will Life Adapt to Living in Space?
Author(s): Robert W Phillips
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Grappling with Gravity explores the physiological changes that will occur in humans and the plants and animals that accompany humans as we move to new worlds, whether it beto acolony in the emptiness of space or settlementson the moon, Mars, or other moons or planets. This book focuses on the biomedical aspects, while not ignoring other life-changing influences of space living. For example, what happens to people physiologically in the microgravity ofspace, where weight and the direction up are meani ngless? Adapting to microgravity represents the greatest physical challenge that human life will have encountered since our ancestors moved from the seas to solid Earth. It will bethe next great adventure!

Sylvio Ferraz-Mello
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 book presents an overview of the outcomes resulting from applying the dynamical systems approach to space mission design, a topic referred to as Space Manifold Dynamics (SMD). It is a natural follow-on to theinternational workshop Novel Spaceway s for Scientific and Exploration Missions, which was held in October 2007 at the Telespazio Fucino Space Centre (Italy) under the auspices of the Space OPS Academy. The benefits and drawbacks ofusing the Lagrangian points and the associated trajectories f or present and future space missions are discussed. The related methods and algorithms are also described in detail. Each topic is presented in articles that were written asfar as possible to be self consistent the use of introductory sections and of exte nded explanations is included in order to address the different communities potentially interested in SMD: space science, the aerospace industry, mannedand unmanned exploration, celestial mechanics, and flight dynamics
