TitleLinking the Space Shuttle and Space Stations : Early Docking Technologies from Concept to Implementation
Author(s)Shayler, David J
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXX, 248 p. 122 illus., 107 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteHow could the newly authorized space shuttle help in the U.S. quest to build a large research station in Earth orbit? As a means of transporting goods, the shuttle could help supply the parts to the station. But how would the two entitles be physically linked? Docking technologies had to constantly evolve as the designs of the early space stations changed. It was hoped the shuttle would make missions to the Russian Salyut and American Skylab stations, but these were postponed until the Mir station became available, while plans for getting a new U. S. space station underway were stalled. In Linking the Space Shuttle and Space Stations, the author delves into the rich history of the Space Shuttle and its connection to these early space stations, culminating in the nine missions to dock the shuttle to Mir. By 1998, after nearly three decades of planning and operations, shuttle missions to Mir had resulted in: ??? A proven system to link up the space shuttle to a space station ??? Equipment and hands-on experience in handling tons of materials ??? An infrastructure to support space station assembly and resupply Each of these played a pivotal role in developing the skills and procedures crucial to the creation of the later, much larger and far more complex International Space Station, as described in the companion volume Assembling and Supplying the ISS: The Space Shuttle Fulfills Its Mission

TitleTIM PEAKE and BRITAIN'S ROAD TO SPACE
Author(s)Seedhouse, Erik
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXXI, 245 p. 130 illus., 126 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book puts the reader in the flight suit of Britain???s first male astronaut, Tim Peake. It chronicles his life, along with the Principia mission and the down-to-the-last-bolt descriptions of life aboard the ISS, by way of the hurdles placed by the British government and the rigors of training at Russia???s Star City military base. In addition, this book discusses the learning curves required in astronaut and mission training and the complexity of the technologies required to launch an astronaut and keep them alive for months on end. This book underscores the fact that technology and training, unlike space, do not exist in a vacuum; complex technical systems, like the ISS, interact with the variables of human personality, and the cultural background of the astronauts.

TitleThe Life, Science and Times of Lev Vasilevich Shubnikov : Pioneer of Soviet Cryogenics
Author(s)Reinders, L. J
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXVIII, 351 p. 33 illus., 14 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book describes the life, times and science of the Soviet physicist Lev Vasilevich Shubnikov (1901-1937). From 1926 to 1930 Shubnikov worked in Leiden where he was the co-discoverer of the Shubnikov-De Haas effect. After his return to the Soviet Union he founded in Kharkov in Ukraine the first low-temperature laboratory in the Soviet Union, which in a very short time became the foremost physics institute in the country and among other things led to the discovery of type-II superconductivity. In August 1937 Shubnikov, together with many of his colleagues, was arrested and shot early in November 1937. This gripping story gives deep insights into the pioneering work of Soviet physicists before the Second World War, as well as providing much previously unpublished information about their brutal treatment at the hands of the Stalinist regime

TitleThe Race to the Moon Chronicled in Stamps, Postcards, and Postmarks : A Story of Puffery vs. the Pragmatic
Author(s)Cavallaro, Umberto
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXI, 338 p. 263 illus., 233 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThe story of the famed race to the Moon between the US and the USSR has been told countless times. The strategies of these two superpowers have often been paralleled in a way that highlights their fight for dominance and efforts to develop needed new technologies. This book will show how beneath these surface similarities, the two competing nations employed very different core tactics. It provides a new perspective of the history of the space race by analyzing that history through philately - that is, from the images on postage stamps, post cards, and letters in circulation at that time. Through this fascinating historical visual record, the author shows how the propaganda-heavy approach of the USSR eventually lost out to the more pragmatic approach of the United States
