Soviet and Russian lunar exploration by Brian Harvey( )

19 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the story of the Soviet and Russian lunar programme, from its origins to the present-day federal Russian space programme. Brian Harvey describes the techniques devised by the USSR for lunar landing, from the LK lunar module to the LOK lunar orbiter and versions tested in Earth's orbit. He asks whether these systems would have worked and examines how well they were tested. He concludes that political mismanagement rather than technology prevented the Soviet Union from landing cosmonauts on the moon. The book is well timed for the return to the moon by the United States and the first missions there by China and India

"This book assesses the scientific haul of data from the Venus and Mars missions and examines the engineering techniques and the science packages used, as well as the difficulties which ruined several missions. The book is illustrated with photographs taken by Soviet Venus and Mars probes, and with material from the program that has only come to light in recent years, such as pictures of the spacecraft, diagrams of the flight paths and landing techniques and maps of the landing sites."--Jacket

Russian space probes : scientific discoveries and future missions by Brian Harvey( )

18 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Soviet Union began the exploration of space with the launch of Sputnik in 1957, well over 50 years ago, and sent the first probes to the Moon, Mars, and Venus. Less well known is what these probes actually found out. What were the discoveries of Russian space science? What new discoveries may we expect in the future? Who were Russia's most important scientists? Russian Space Probes gives for the first time the definitive history of Soviet-Russian space science, and is the first book to assess the actual achievements of the Russian space program in furthering our knowledge of the Solar System. Among other projects covered are missions such as Elektron, which mapped the Earth's radiation belts; the astrophysical observatories Astron, Kvant, Gamma, ¡and Granat; Proton, which trapped cosmic rays; Prognoz, which measured solar radiation; and the Interball, Aktivny, APEX, and Magion mission in which satellites chased each other in the Earth's magnetic tail. The final part of the book examines the future of Russian space science and looks at planned new missions, such as the Spektr series of space observatories, and return flights to the Moon and Mars, including a sample of Phobos
Space exploration 2008 by David M Harland( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of the Space Exploration annuals is to provide a yearly update on recent space launches, missions and results, to be published every September. The annual will cover space exploration from a variety of angles, looking back at past missions, reviewing those currently under way and detailing those planned for the future, and encompassing both manned and unmanned spaceflight. The invited contributions, authored by leading figures in astronomy and space exploration and which make up the bulk of the annual each year, will cover a variety of topics and are written to appeal to a wide readership. One feature introduced in the first volume {u2018}Solar System Log{u2019} featuring the very latest in the exploration of the planets, their moons and small Solar System bodies, will be retained for Space Exploration 2008, and will comprise seven chapters. In addition, there will be a special additional section entitled, {u2018}Return to the Moon{u2019} containing three chapters
China in space : the great leap forward by Brian Harvey( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 21st century has seen the emergence, after the Soviet Union and the United States, of the third great space superpower: China. Here, in China in Space - The Great Leap Forward, Brian Harvey takes a contemporary look at the new Chinese space program. China has already launched its first space station, Tiangong; has sent its first spacecraft to the Moon, the Chang e; and has plans to send spaceships to Mars and further afield. China's annual launch rate has already overtaken those of both Europe and the United States. Huge new production plants and launch centers are under construction, to build and launch the new family of Long March 5, 6, and 7 rockets. In Roadmap 2050, the Academy of Sciences indicates that China intends to be the leading spacefaring nation by mid-century, with bases on the Moon and Mars. This book gives an informed, fully up-to-date commentary on all aspects of the Chinese space program, including its history, development, technology, missions, and the personalities involved. It lists all the Chinese launches, missions, and terminology, going behind the press releases to draw on hitherto unused scientific papers and sources. China in Space is a unique, forward-looking account of the Chinese space program, covering its full range of missions: manned, communications, scientific, military, technology-testing, and lunar.--

The Chinese space programme : from conception to future capabilities by Brian Harvey( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "The Chinese space programme: from conception to future capabilities", Brian Harvey traces the origins and development of the Chinese space programme. He records how the The Chinese Communist leadership recruited scientists expelled from the United States to build a programme to match those of the Americans and Russians. He describes the political turmoil which then interrupted the development of the programme -the great leap forward, the cultural revolution, political reorganization and diplomatic isolation. Not until 1970 did China launch its first satellite, Dong Fang Hong ("The East is Red"). The author outlines how China has since developed a space programme comprising over 50 scientific probes, recoverable cabins, weather and commmunications satellites. China has built a family of launchers in the Long March series, constructed three launch sites and developed a formidable infrastructure of space facilities. Chinese launchers have made a modest impact on the world commercial launcher market. The author looks forward to Chinese plans to put cosmonauts in space and become the world's third great space power. This is the first comprehensive account of the Chinese space programme. Brian Harvey describes the history of the programme, assesses its current capabilities and standards and outlines its plans for the future. Glossaries and key dates are provided as well as technical information on Chinese launchers and satellites
