The Mariner 6 and 7 pictures of Mars by Stewart A Collins( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume presents the results of the Mariner VI and VII missions, in a more finished form that has been issued hitherto. Greatest interest attaches to the 200-odd television images which the world first viewed in their crude form as they were received on Earth. To most fully utilize this television data, NASA has sponsored extensive post-flyby computer processing and analysis of these pictures. The purpose of this book is to make available high-quality reproductions of the final, computer-processed pictures. The text serves only to explain the genesis and unique characteristics of the pictures, to point out interesting features in them, and to provide some indication of their significance in the history of Mars investigations. Detailed analysis has been avoided in this volume."--Page v, vii

Deep space telecommunications systems engineering by Joseph H Yuen( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The challenge of communication in planetary exploration has been unusual. The guidance and control of spacecraft depend on reliable communication. Scientific data returned to earth are irreplaceable, or replaceable only at the cost of another mission. In deep space, communications propagation is good, relative to terrestrial communications, and there is an opportunity to press toward the mathematical limit of microwave communication. Yet the limits must be approached warily, with reliability as well as channel capacity in mind. Further, the effects of small changes in the earth's atmosphere and the interplanetary plasma have small but important effects on propagation time and hence on the measurement of distance. Advances are almost incredible. Communication capability measured in 18 bits per second at a given range rose by a factor of 10 in the 19 years from Explorer I of 1958 to Voyager of 1977. This improvement was attained through ingenious design based on the sort of penetrating analysis set forth in this book by engineers who took part in a highly detailed and amazingly successful pro­ gram. Careful observation and analysis have told us much about limitations on the accurate measurement of distance. It is not easy to get busy people to tell others clearly and in detail how they have solved important problems. Joseph H. Yuen and the other contribu­ tors to this book are to be commended for the time and care they have devoted to explicating one vital aspect of a great adventure of mankind

10 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current Aspects of Exobiology covers the philosophical aspects, scientific approach, and related research problems in exobiology. Most of the chapters are presented at the Current Research in Exobiology Symposium, held at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on February 26-28, 1963. <br>This book is composed of 10 chapters and begins with an overview of the nature and occurrence of extraterrestrial living matter. The next chapters survey certain line of evidence concerning extraterrestrial life, including investigation of organo-chemical evolution, organic remains in meteorites, microorganisms of Mid
