Dressing for altitude : U.S. aviation pressure suits-- Wiley Post to space shuttle by Dennis R Jenkins ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since its earliest days, flight has been about pushing the limits of technology and, in many cases, pushing the limits of human endurance. The human body can be the limiting factor in the design of aircraft and spacecraft. Humans cannot survive unaided at high altitudes. There have been a number of books written on the subject of spacesuits, but the literature on the high-altitude pressure suits is lacking. This volume provides a high-level summary of the technological development and operational use of partial- and full-pressure suits, from the earliest models to the current high altitude, full-pressure suits used for modern aviation, as well as those that were used for launch and entry on the Space Shuttle. The goal of this work is to provide a resource on the technology for suits designed to keep humans alive at the edge of space."--NTRS Web site

Coming home reentry and recovery from space by Roger D Launius ( )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The tragic loss of Columbia brought to the fore one of the most difficult issues NASA has had to deal with since the beginning of space flight: how its space systems operate while transiting the atmosphere as they return to Earth. The technologies for the reentry and recovery from space might change over time, but the challenge remains one of the most important and vexing in the rigorous efforts to bring spacecraft and their crews and cargo home successfully. Returning to Earth after a flight into space is a fundamental challenge, and contributions from the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate in aerodynamics, thermal protection, guidance and control, stability, propulsion, and landing systems have proven critical to the success of the human space flight and other space programs. Without this base of fundamental and applied research, the capability to fly into space would not exist.Accordingly, this study represents a means of highlighting the myriad of technological developments that made possible the safe reentry and return from space and the landing on Earth."--P. viii

X-15 : extending the frontiers of flight by Dennis R Jenkins ( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The X-15 was the ultimate "X" vehicle. Built in the 1950s, she became the fastest and highest-flying winged aircraft of its time. During 199 flights from 1959 through 1968, she collected data about hypersonic flight that was invaluable to aeronautics and to developers of the space shuttle. This book describes the genesis of the program, the design and construction of the aircraft, years of research flights and the experiments that flew aboard them.-publisher description
