     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.

    • Published: March 2004
    To mark the 50th anniversary of powered flight, Von Kármán (1881-1963) set out to provide general readers some idea of the theories underlying flight, and to remind people engaged in the study or professional use of aerodynamic science how much mental effort was necessary to arrive at an understanding of the fundamental phenomena that by his time were readily available. His treatment began as six lectures at Cornell University in March 1953 in the series Messenger Lectures on the Evolution of Civilization. Cornell University Press published the original; this reproduction is of the 1957 second printing. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
