The two volume Encyclopedia of Space Science and Technology
represents an ambitious collection of the underlying physical
properties of rockets, satellites and space stations, what is known by
astronomers about the sun, planets, galaxy and universe, and the effect
of the space environment on human and other biological systems. The
Encyclopedia also provides a state-of-the-art summary of the
engineering involved in launching a rocket or satellite, the control
systems involved on the ground, in orbit or in deep space, and on
manufacturing in space from planetary and other resources. A quick
study of a number of basic topics in space science for researchers in
optics, materials processing and telecommunications, this Encyclopedia
is also an indispensable resource for physicists, astronomers,
engineers and materials and computer science.
