     Weltraumantriebe sind der Schlüssel zur Raumfahrt! Sie bestimmen die Reisezeit zu fernen Planeten und sind natürlich ein wesentlicher Kostentreiber für jede Weltraummission. Dieses Buch zeigt den letzten Entwicklungsstand einer Vielzahl von Antriebssystemen, von klassischer Raketentechnologie, nuklearen Antrieben - welche hauptsächlich in den 60er und 70er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts entwickelt wurden - zu elektrischen Antrieben und weiter zu Mikro- und futuristischen Antriebssystemen, an denen bei der NASA und in der ganzen Welt geforscht wird. Dabei werden bei jedem System nicht nur die technischen Grenzen, sondern auch die Richtung in die sich ein Antrieb in Zukunft entwickeln kann diskutiert. Der Leser begibt sich auf eine spannende Reise, von historischen Konzepten bis hin zu bahnbrechenden Technologien, welche teilweise schon jahrzehntelang entwickelt wurden aber erst jetzt eingesetzt werden und eine wesentliche Rolle in der Zukunft der Raumfahrt spielen sollen. Am Ende werden sogar Ideen präsentiert, wie die zukünftige Wissenschaft Probleme wie die Reise zu anderen Sternen meistern könnte. Der Autor ist aktiv in der Forschung an einer Reihe von modernen Weltraumantrieben involviert und kann so seine eigene Erfahrung zu vielen Themen einbringen. Dieses Buch ist für all jede geschrieben, die schon immer fasziniert waren von der Frage, wie die Weltraumfahrt revolutioniert werden kann.

    A long-established U.S. Navy publication also used by the U.S. Air Force as well as by the FAA as a source reference for their own publications, this textbook presents the elements of applied aerodynamics and aeronautical engineering that directly relate to the flight training and general flight operations of naval aviators. For more than 50 years, this book has been a definitive source that communicates the complexities of applied aerodynamics and aeronautical engineering for both the beginner and the experienced pilot. Flight safety and effectiveness depends greatly on the understanding and appreciation of how and why an airplane flies, and this resource teaches aerodynamic principles, providing the foundation for developing precise flying techniques and operational procedures. The information in Aerodynamics for Naval Aviators is applicable to flight training, transition training, reciprocating and turbine-powered airplanes, and general flying operations. It offers the elements of both theory and application, covering basic aerodynamics, high-speed aerodynamics, airplane performance, stability and control, operation strength limitations, and the application of aerodynamics to specific problems of flying, such as the region of reversed command, wind shear, effects of ice and frost, ground effect, and collision avoidance. Also included are an index and a list of selected references.
