Title:Space Systems Failures [electronic resource] : Disasters and Rescues of Satellites, Rockets and Space Probes
Author(s): David M Harland
Ralph D Lorenz

Publisher:New York, NY : Praxis
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the 1960s and 1970s deep space missions were dispatched in pairs in case one was lost in launch or failed during its journey. Following the triumphs of the Viking landings on Mars in 1976 and both Voyagers spacecraftsuccessfully surveying the oute r giant planets of the Solar System, it was decided by NASA to cut costs and send out just a single probe. Although Magellan successfully mapped Venus by radar, it suffered from problems during theflight. Then came the loss of Mars Observer, whose engine exploded as it was preparing to enter Mars orbit because it was using technology designed for Earths satellites and the engine was not suited to spending several months inspace. Later came the high-profile losses of Mars Climate Observer and Mars Polar La nder - a consequence of the faster, better, cheaper philosophy introduced by Dan Goldin in 1993. Even the highly successful Galileo mission suffered amajor setback when its high-gain antenna (also based on satellite mission suffered a major setback when i ts high-gain antenna (also based on satellite communication technology) failed to deploy fully, greatly diminishing the craftsradio transmission capabilities, forcing the ground crew to re-programme the on-board computer to enable it to fulfil its mission and provide stunning images of Jupiter and its moons. In Space Systems Failures, David Harland (hereworking with co-author Ralph Lorenz) describes the many quite fascinating tales of woe involving failures of rockets, satellites and deep space missions i n his inimitable style, providing a unique insight into the trials andtribulations of exploration at the high frontier
