Lunar Orbiter photographic atlas of the Moon by David E Bowker( Book )

5 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact of science on society by James Burke( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact of science on society is examined in this publication's coverage of a series of public lectures that commemorated the 25th anniversary of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Edited versions of four speeches are presented which address the impact of science on society from the time of humanity's first significant scientific invention to that of expected future scientific advances. The papers include: (1) "The Legacy of Science" by British historian James Burke; (2) "Accomplishments of Science by the Year 2000" by television science editor and reporter Jules Bergman; (3) "Our Future in the Cosmos--Computers" by scientist and science fiction writer Dr. Isaac Asimov; and (4) "Our Future in the Cosmos--Space" also by Dr. Isaac Asimov. Audience questions and lecturer responses follow each of the papers. Biographical sketches of each presenter are also included. (Ml)

An inexpensive economical solar heating system for homes by United States( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A low-cost solar home heating system to supplement existing warm-air heating systems is described. The report is written in three parts: (1) a brief background on solar heating, (2) experience with a demonstration system, and (3) information for the homeowner who wishes to construct such a system. Instructions are given for a solar heating installation in which the homeowner supplies all labor necessary to install off-the-shelf components estimated to cost 2,000. These components, which include solar collector, heat exchanger, water pump, storage tank, piping, and controls to make the system completely automatic, are available at local lumber yards, hardware stores, and plumbing supply stores, and are relatively simple to install. Manufacturers and prices of each component used and a rough cost analysis based on these prices are included. This report also gives performance data obtained from a demonstration system which was built and tested at the Langley Research Center

Static performance of six innovative thrust reverser concepts for subsonic transport applications : summary of the NASA Langley Innovative Thrust Reverser Test Program by Scott C Asbury( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The NASA Langley Configuration Aerodynamics Branch has conducted an experimental investigation to study the static performance of innovative thrust reverser concepts applicable to high-bypass-ratio turbofan engines. Testing was conducted on a conventional separate-flow exhaust system configuration, a conventional cascade thrust reverser configuration, and six innovative thrust reverser configurations. The innovative thrust reverser configurations consisted of a cascade thrust reverser with porous fan-duct blocker, a blockerless thrust reverser, two core-mounted target thrust reversers, a multi-door crocodile thrust reverser, and a wing-mounted thrust reverser. Each of the innovative thrust reverser concepts offer potential weight savings and/or design simplifications over a conventional cascade thrust reverser design. Testing was conducted in the Jet-Exit Test facility at NASA Langley Research Center using a 7.9% scale exhaust system model with a fan-to-core bypass ratio of approximately 9.0. All tests were conducted with no external flow and cold, high-pressure air was used to simulate core and fan exhaust flows. Results show that the innovative thrust reverser concepts achieved thrust reverser performance levels which, when taking into account the potential for system simplification and reduced weight, may make them competitive with, or potentially more cost effective than current state-of-the-art thrust reverser systems
