Winner of the Luigi Napolitano Award (2006) from the International Academy of Astronautics This book presents the fascinating story of the events that paved the way to space. It introduces the reader to the history of early rocketry and the subsequent developments that led into the space age. People of various nations and from various lands contributed to the breakthrough to space, and the book takes the reader to faraway places on five continents. It also includes many quotes to give readers a flavor of how the participants viewed the developments. Most publications on the topic either target narrow aspects of rocket history or are popular books that scratch the surface, with minimal and sometimes inaccurate technical details. This book bridges the gap. It contains numerous technical details usually unavailable in popular publications. The details are not overbearing and anyone interested in rocketry and space exploration will navigate through the book without difficulty. There are 340 figures and photographs, many appearing for the first time.

Rocketry: Investigate the Science and Technology of Rockets and Ballistics introduces students to the fascinating world of rocketry and ballistics. Readers discover the history of rocket development, from the earliest fire arrows in China to modern-day space shuttles, as well as the main concepts of rocketry, including how rockets are launched, move through the atmosphere, and return to earth safely. Exploring the science behind rocket flight, kids learn how the forces of thrust, gravity, lift, and drag interact to determine a rocket’s path, then imagine new uses and technologies in rocketry that are being developed today and for the future. Combining hands-on activities with physics, chemistry, and mathematics, Rocketry brings fun to learning about the world of rocket science. Entertaining illustrations and fascinating sidebars illuminate the topic, while Words to Know highlighted and defined within the text reinforce new vocabulary. Projects include building a pneumatic blast rocket and launcher, testing a rocket recovery system, and designing a rocket model of the future. Additional materials include a glossary, and a list of current reference works, websites, and Internet resources. This title meets Common Core State Standards for literacy in science and technology; Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.

Hermann Oberth: One of the Fathers of Rocketry. Inventor of the Multistage Rocket & A Believer in OFOs With Intelligent Beings on Far Away Planets in the Universe Transylvania-born Hermann Julius Oberth (25 June 1894-28 December 1989) was an amateur bi-fuel liquid rocketeer and a best-selling author about rocket engine research, development and interplanetary space travel. He also created design ideas for orbiting space solar mirrors…their concentrated energy beamed down to Earth for peaceful purposes as well as military uses as a “death ray.” This is the story of some of his most interesting projects!

Rocketry and Astrionics

Author: Dennis Feucht

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9781682736258


Page: 216

This book presents an intermediate treatment of the principles of rocket mechanics and propulsion, including some concepts of electronics applied to astronautics applications, or astrionics. The design, repair, and maintenance of electronic subsystems of rockets is benefited by an understanding of the technology to which the electronics is applied. This book "jump-starts" readers by providing the broader technical knowledge of rockets to access aerospace engineering literature. The practical contents of this book are taken in part from development of the Huron rocket of the Great Lakes Rocket Society,a liquid-propellant sounding rocket with approximately 1000-pound of thrust and an estimated achievable altitude of about 20 miles (32 km). During the course of this project, several astrionic subsystems used in the Huron design were developed by the author: an electrically-actuated ball-valve controller, a flight-control computer, and pyrotechnic pulse generators for accurate and repeatable igniter excitation. This background contributes significantly to the astrionics part of this book. A broader context of understanding that includes rocket flight, propulsion, and launch procedures can greatly enhance proficiency in astrionics. Consequently, much of this book provides a background in basic rocket principles.
