TitleRadio Telescope Reflectors : Historical Development of Design and Construction
Author(s)Baars, Jacob W.M;K??rcher, Hans J
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXIV, 275 p. 194 illus., 146 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book demonstrates how progress in radio astronomy is intimately linked to the development of reflector antennas of increasing size and precision. The authors describe the design and construction of major radio telescopes as those in Dwingeloo, Jodrell Bank, Parkes, Effelsberg and Green Bank since 1950 up to the present as well as millimeter wavelength telescopes as the 30m MRT of IRAM in Spain, the 50m LMT in Mexico and the ALMA submillimeter instrument. The advances in methods of structural design and coping with environmental influences (wind, temperature, gravity) as well as application of new materials are explained in a non-mathematical, descriptive and graphical way along with the story of the telescopes. Emphasis is placed on the interplay between astronomical and electromagnetic requirements and structural, mechanical and control solutions. A chapter on management aspects of large telescope projects closes the book. The authors address a readership with interest in the progress of engineering solutions applied to the development of radio telescope reflectors and ground station antennas for satellite communication and space research. The book will also be of interest to historians of science and engineering with an inclination to astronomy

TitleFrom Cave Man to Cave Martian : Living in Caves on the Earth, Moon and Mars
Author(s)von Ehrenfried, Manfred "Dutch"
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionXVIII, 320 p. 138 illus., 124 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book explores the practicality of using the existing subsurface geology on the Moon and Mars for protection against radiation, thermal extremes, micrometeorites and dust storms rather than building surface habitats at great expense at least for those first few missions. It encourages NASA to plan a precursor mission using this concept and employ a ???Short Stay??? Opposition Class mission to Mars as the first mission rather than the ???Long Stay??? concept requiring a mission that is too long, too dangerous and too costly for man???s first missions to Mars. Included in these pages is a short history on the uses of caves by early humans over great periods of time. It then describes the ongoing efforts to research caves, pits, tunnels, lava tubes, skylights and the associated technologies that pertain to potential lunar and Mars exploration and habitation. It describes evidence for existing caves and lava tubes on both the Moon and Mars. The work of noted scientists, technologists and roboticists are referenced and described. This ongoing work is more extensive than one would think and is directly applicable to longer term habitation and exploration of the Moon and Mars. Emphasis is also given to the operational aspects of working and living in lunar and Martian caves and lava tubes

TitleFrom Cave Art to Hubble : A History of Astronomical Record Keeping
Author(s)Powell, Jonathan
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionVII, 265 p. 16 illus., 15 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteSince ancient times, humans have engaged in a continual quest to make sense of the night sky. Cultures across the world recorded their earliest efforts in artwork made directly on the natural landscapes around them, and from there developed increasingly sophisticated techniques for observing and documenting astronomy. This book brings readers on an astronomical journey through the ages, offering a history of how our species has recorded and interpreted the night sky. From cave art to parchment scribe to modern X-ray mapping of the sky,it chronicles the development of tools that informed and at times entirely toppled our understanding of the natural world. Our recording techniques formed the bedrock for increasingly complex forays into astronomy and celestial mechanics. In addition to these topics,the book explores how nature itself has recorded the skies in its own way, which we can unravel through geological and archaeological studies. This tale of human discovery and ingenuity over the ages will appeal to anybody interested in astronomy and its rich cultural history

TitleReturning People to the Moon After Apollo : Will It Be Another Fifty Years?
Author(s)Norris, Pat
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionVII, 231 p. 88 illus., 64 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteJuly 2019 marks 50 years since Neil Armstrong took his famous first steps on the surface of the Moon. As people around the world celebrate the anniversary of this great American achievement, they might wonder why there have been no further human missions to the Moon since Apollo 17 in 1972. This book assesses the legacy of the Apollo missions based on several decades of space developments since the program???s end. The question of why we haven???t sent humans back to the Moon is explored through a multidisciplinary lens that weaves together technological and historical perspectives. The nine manned Apollo missions, including the six that landed on the Moon, are described here by an author who has 50 years of experience in the space industry and whose work spanned the Apollo 8???13 missions. The final section of the book provides a comprehensive assessment of today???s programs and current plans for sending humans to the Moon

TitleA History of Optical Telescopes in Astronomy
Author(s)Wall, Wilson
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXV, 173 p. 45 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book is uniquely about the relationship between the optical telescope and astronomy as they developed together. It covers the time between the telescope's pivotal invention in the 1600's up to the modern era of space-based telescopes. Over the intervening centuries, there were huge improvements in the optical resolution of telescopes, along with changes in their positioning and nature of application that forever altered the course of astronomy. For a long time, the field was an exclusive club for self-motivated stargazers who could afford to build their own telescopes. Many of these leisure-time scholars left their mark by virtue of their meticulous observations and record keeping. Although they would now be considered amateurs, these figures and their contributions were pivotal and are covered in this book alongside professionals, for the first time giving a complete picture of the history of telescopic science

TitleChronicling the Golden Age of Astronomy : A History of Visual Observing from Harriot to Moore
Author(s)English, Neil
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXIV, 665 p. 266 illus., 182 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThe invention of the telescope at the dawning of the 17th century has revolutionized humanity's understanding of the Universe and our place within it. This book traces the development of the telescope over four centuries, as well as the many personalities who used it to uncover brand-new revelations about the Sun, Moon, planets, stars and distant galaxies. Starting with early observers such as Thomas Harriot, Galileo, Johannes Hevelius, Giovanni Domenico Cassini, Robert Hooke and Christian Huygens, the book explores how these early observers arrived at essentially correct ideas concerning the objects they studied. Moving into the 18th and 19th centuries, the author describes the increasing sophistication of telescopes both large and small, and the celebrated figures who used them so productively, including the Herschels, Charles Messier, William Lassell and the Earls of Rosse. Many great discoveries were also made with smaller instruments when placed in the capable hands of the Struve dynasty, F.W. Bessel, Angelo Secchi and S.W Burnham, to name but a few. Nor were all great observers of professional ilk. The book explores the contributions made by the 'clerical astronomers,' William Rutter Dawes, Thomas William Webb, T.E.R Philips and T.H.E.C Espin, as well as the lonely vigils of E.E. Barnard, William F. Denning and Charles Grover. And in the 20th century, the work of Percival Lowell, Leslie Peltier, Eugene M. Antoniadi, Clyde Tombaugh, Walter Scott Houston, David H. Levy and Sir Patrick Moore is fully explored. Generously illustrated throughout, this treasure trove of astronomical history shows how each observer's work led to seminal developments in science, and providing key insights into how we go about exploring the heavens today
