New Books of Interest

Space Tourism : Adventures in Earth's Orbit and Beyond

Michel van Pel -2005
Amazon: US  UK

Attempts to answer the question, "what would it actually feel like to be a tourist in space, to be hurled into orbit on top of a controlled explosion, to float around in a spacecraft, and to be able to look down on your hometown from above the atmosphere?"

The Lunar Base Handbook

The Lunar Base Handbook:
An Introduction toLunar Base Design, Development, and Operations
Peter Eckart, Buzz Aldrin
2000
Amazon: US  UK

"Created primarily for engineers, this lengthy reference includes 24 chapters by Eckart (astronautics, Technical University of Munich)-- each of which is preceded by at least one introductory essay by contributors such as Buzz Aldrin, Arthur C. Clarke, Harrison H. Schmitt, and John Young. Eckart seems to have thought of everything - from funding sources and site selection to habitat design, power supply, crew health, communication and navigation systems, radiation shielding, and even selecting wheels for lunar surface vehicles. Truly multidisciplinary." Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

The High Frontier

The High Frontier - 3rd ed.
Gerard K. O'Neill - 2000
[Includes CD-ROM]
Amazon: US  UK

When the space colony proposals of the late Gerard O'Neill, a Princeton professor of physics, first appeared in the mid-1970s, they inspired many to see space as a place where humans really can build new worlds and societies. The High Frontier developed the full picture of how such huge space stations could be built and how solar power satellites would provide their financial basis. This new edition includes additional chapters from several space luminaries plus a CD-ROM with a video presentation by Prof. O'Neill and other multi-media resources
