Robotic Exploration of the Solar System: Part 1: The Golden Age 1957-1982 (Springer Praxis Books) by Paolo Ulivi



This boo. resents the accomplishments of robotic exploration of the major planets and their moons from Mercury to Neptune. Ulivi and Harland do a splendid job describing observations made using thes. robots’ to take pictures and explore the infrared and radio emissions, aurora, magnetic fields, and magnetospheres of these planets, their satellites, and the interplanetary medium. First, this book describes the state of the kwowledge of the solar system just before space exploration beggins. Second, this book is comprehensive, in that it includes us, european and soviet/russian contributions. They are many detailed descriptions, including all phases of a given mission, even those which were never realized, from planning, launch and the follow-up on results. All aspects are described, financial, political and technical.

Paolo Ulivi and David Harland provide in Robotic Exploration of the Solar System a detailed history of unmanned missions of exploration of our Solar System. As in their previous book Lunar Exploration, the subject will be treated wherever possible from an engineering and scientific standpoint. Technical descriptions of the spacecraft, of their mission designs and of instrumentations will be provided.

This fascinating book is a must-have text for space enthusiasts with an engineering bent. It is a detailed history of unmanned missions that have explored our solar system. The subject is treated wherever possible from an engineering and scientific standpoint and includes technical descriptions of the spacecraft, their mission designs and their instrumentations. This fascinating book is a must-have text for space enthusiasts with an engineering bent. The book is fantastically comprehensive, covering missions and results from the 1950s right up to the present day. Some of the latest missions and their results appear in a popular science book for the first time. Unflown European projects of the 1960s and 1970s, a subject never before treated, will also be covered.

534 p. The Second World War left among its many and painful heritages a new technology, ballistic missiles, that was to change the world, providing a way to carry into space instruments, satellites and probes that revolutionized science and technology. This decision was to have grave repercussions: on 4 October 1957 the Soviet Union launched its PS-1 satellite, better known as Sputnik, which rocked the USA. This was compounded a month later by the launch of the PS-2, carrying the dog Laika. Чтобы скачать этот файл зарегистрируйтесь и/или войдите на сайт используя форму сверху.

Robotic Exploration of the Solar System. Part 1.

The best book I read so far on space exploration.

The combination of Harlan the historian, and Ulivi the astronomer, which had already produced the excellent `lunar exploration' book made this an outstanding contribution.

First, this book describes the state of the kwowledge of the solar system just before space exploration beggins. Second, this book is comprehensive, in that it includes us, european and soviet/russian contributions.

They are many detailed descriptions, including all phases of a given mission, even those which were never realized, from planning, launch and the follow-up on results. All aspects are described, financial, political and technical.

The book contains many readeable line drawings, figures, good pictures, some of them quite rare, as well as many little known facts for the average reader, it is an excellent basis for those who are looking for a global view of this part of the history of science.

In the early space age there were a large number of missions of planetary exploration, some highly successful, many lost at launch. This is the best book I have read describing them all. I have read 3 books on Voyager, though somewhat shorter than them it has the best description of the Voyager tour and discoveries: probe passes moon x, moon x's characteristics turn out to be α,β,γ. For some reason every other book on Voyager would describe Io and volcanoes, but at best gloss over the rest of the Jupiter system. If I have a quip is with things that came out after the book was published, Voyager did cross out of the magnetosphere in 2012 (though we only found out in 2013) something that a book that came out in 2007 wouldn't know. Also it would be nicer if like in volume 2 it would give more policy discussion on what went behind the space mission (e.g. why President X's administration did or did not like mission Y). Still I consider the best book on the early space age I have read, though I think that 8 years later it would benefit from a second edition

I have enjoyed reading this book, it is written in a very clear and detailed style that is very easy to understand. The authors point out cases where something may have been done on one mission that had an effect on decisions made on future ones, like hardening future exploration of Jupiter after the scale of the radiation belts had been established.

It presents a chronology of all of the missions, even the ones that were eventually cancelled and gives a great insight into some of the missions that were imagined, but never eventuated, and how some evolved from an initial concept to the actual mission flown. The book is a great reference for anyone interested in the exploration of space.

Fantastic book. Excellent information. The robotic exploration of the solar system is one of the most interesting topic in modern science and technology because it involves politics, science, risk and exploration of new worlds, plus many amazing discoveries. It is absolutely fascinating and emotive. In this book you can learn how this branch of science was born. I have read many books about unmanned science exploration and this one is very well written and structured.

What a fantastic book, dense with anecdotes and minute of the various missions described. And suitably long in pages as well - fitting detail for spectacular missions . Actually it could have been twice as long and I would have been just as happy!

Excellent book!!

Have not read,going through table contents,Space ners would like it
This book is rich in the most minute details and yet also enormously readable. It and its companion volumes are hands down the definitive history of mankind's robotic exploration of the solar system. Highly recommended.
