Introduction to Space book. This book has been updated with recent information on the science and technology involved in the new frontier of space.

The book is now profusely illustrated throughout with 274 illustrations of which 102 are in color.

It has been updated with the latest information on the science and technology involved to explain why astronauts are weightless, what satellites do and why they don t fall from the sky, how we will live on Mars, and whether or not there is life elsewhere in the universe. The book is now profusely illustrated throughout with 274 illustrations of which 102 are in color.

Now a third edition of this popular book is available for those who want to know why astronauts are weightless, what satellites do and why they don't fall from the sky, how we will live on Mars, and whether or not there is life elsewhere in the universe. New and expanded subjects include the latest concepts in propulsion, high resolution images of Earth from space, debris in orbit, Mir and the International Space Station, exploration of the Solar System and beyond, disturbances in the space environment, and much more. The book is profusely illustrated. This edition has twice as many color pages as the second edition. All quantities are now given in both common units and metric units

As a student of aviation and space topics, I came across this book and took a chance.

This is a textbook and it is quite good and pretty well-encompassing. I wouldn't consider this a technical manual. I would look elsewhere for higher level math and physics to understand the topic.

However, for a basic overall understanding of the various topics related to spaceflight, this gives lots of good information. Valuable and worthwhile.

Thomas Damon's "Introduction to Space" is a good place to start for people who are generally unfamiliar with any of the basic principles of space flight. It is comprehensible any to interested person, and is generally geared toward a high school or early collegiate reader. The text is good at simplifying the math involved and in separating it from the text, making comprehension much easier for people who are not mathematically inclined.

The book introduces most every aspect of space flight from the history of the US and Soviet space programs, to living in space. There are specific chapters that discuss orbits (although sparing the reader the math of an orbital mechanics book), space stations, the shuttle, space stations, astronomy, remote sensing, satellites, and even the potential for extraterrestrial colonization.

I was required to read this book for a class, but think this book is really only suitable for a high school or early undergraduate course. (It would be ideal for a high school physics unit on space.) I have a fairly good conceptual background in spacecraft operations, and because of that found the book a tad boring, although it occasionally did teach me something I had not previously known. The book is clearly written, and seems factually quite good. I recommend it for anyone who needs a basic introduction to spaceflight, and who has no previous background in that area.

Received this when I was in school. Amazon rent is probably the best place to get the books you need. Grant it they do not have all the books you will need but most of them they will. I was even able to find some that my instructors said that I may have an issue finding. Amazon rent saved me a ton of money and I recommend it for any and everyone in school. If you are going to be a little late on your return they can extend your rental for a low fee with out having to buy the book at full cost returning the books are easy as well. This in itself should inspire folks to get out there and get their degree.

I first had the pleasure of using Mr. Damon's book, "Introduction to Space: the Science of Spaceflight," in my first few graduate classes. I was impressed by the coverage afforded in this book. Granted, this book was completely useless for technical graduate studies (I needed my 'number and equation fix') it has many uses for persons wanting to know about space without the calculations and involved physics.

The coverage of the book hits topics from brief history of spaceflight, to propulsion, orbital mechanics (without math!!), remote sensing, the Space Shuttle program, to the future of space travel. Diagrams and pictures convey the information clearly and the infoboxes have minor mathematics, for those closet 'rocket science' geeks...

The only downside to this book is not the fault of the publisher or author; it is of the book's users. This book is completely inappropriate for technical graduate level studies; as a non-technical book it has enough science to satisfy a reader's interest. This book is great for high-school/undergraduate students (or laypersons) that you're trying to get interested in spaceflight. Don't abuse grad students by having them purchase this!!!

I bought this book as a textbook for a Space Physics class, and it was pretty useless. It doesn't even define escape velocity that well, and that was the first thing we covered in the class. Feels more like a history textbook rather than a book about science and physics.
