The Space-Age Presidency of John F. Kennedy A Rare Photographic History

The Space-Age Presidency of John F. Kennedy A Rare Photographic History

Author: John Bisney, J.L. Pickering, Christopher C. Kraft Jr Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/03/2019

This engaging and unprecedented work captures the compelling story of John F. Kennedy's role in advancing the United States' space program, set against the Cold War with the Soviet Union. The stunning collection of history and photographs crafted by authors John Bisney and J. L. Pickering illustrates Kennedy's close association with the race to space during his legendary time in office. In addition to the exhaustive research and rare photographs, the authors have also included excerpts from Kennedy's speeches, news conferences, and once-secret White House recordings to provide the reader with more context through the president's own words. While Kennedy did not live to see the fruition of many of the endeavors he supported, his legacy lives on in many ways--many of which are captured in this important work.

Space Architecture

Author: Marc (Palo Alto, CA, USA) Cohen Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/03/2019

This book derives from an understanding of space architecture as part of a continuum from early civilizations through the major historical periods up through the modern movement of the twentieth century and its successors. It presents the key methodological precepts and historical precedents that lead or contribute to space architecture as a discipline and building type. The book provides detailed analyses and design concepts for various space missions, human spacecraft, and science vehicles and platforms. It shows the pivotal role of solid geometry from Plato to Buckminster Fuller and beyond to the space architects of the future.

Soviet Space Program: The Lunar Mission Years: 1959-1976

Soviet Space Program: The Lunar Mission Years: 1959-1976

Author: Eugen Reichl Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/02/2019

With the launch of the Sputnik 1 satellite on October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union started the space race; the race for the moon soon followed. Here too the USSR was ahead of the game: the first flyby of the moon, the first lunar-impact probe, the first pictures of the far side, and the first soft landing. Defending the lead, and thus demonstrating the superiority of communism, was an ideological must for Soviet leadership. The United States soon caught up and surpassed the Soviet moon program. This book chronologically examines the fifty-nine missions the USSR sent or intended to send to the moon from 1959 to 1976. Eventually, the Soviets finally abandoned the idea of a manned moon landing and for the following decade and a half claimed that they never conducted such a program. Unmanned Soviet lunar flights continued until 1976, by which time they had used up all of the space probes built in the years previous.

Space Exploration Development, Planning and Challenges

Space Exploration Development, Planning and Challenges

Author: Thomas R. Reed Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/02/2019

Human spaceflight at NASA began in the 1960s with the Mercury and Gemini programs leading up to the Apollo moon landings. After the last lunar landing, Apollo 17, in 1972, NASA shifted its attention to low earth orbit operations with human spaceflight efforts that included the Space Shuttle and International Space Station programs through the remainder of the 20th century. Exploration of our solar system has brought great knowledge to our Nations scientific and engineering community over the past several decades. As we expand our visions to explore new, more challenging destinations, we must also expand our technology base to support these new missions. NASAs Space Technology Mission Directorate is tasked with developing these technologies for future mission infusion and continues to seek answers to many existing technology gaps.
