Cumulative Topical Index
Advances in Space Science and Technology, Volume 10 provides information pertinent to the developments in space science and technology. This book discusses the logistic and shelter construction, environment, and transportation aspects of Antarctic and lunar exploration.
Organized into five chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the comparison of the lunar exploration program with the exploration of Antarctica. This text then explores the surface geology of the planet Mars wherein the study emphasizes that water erosion transport does not exist, that an oxidizing atmosphere is absent, and that wind erosion must be minimal. Other chapters consider the problems associated with navigation aboard spaceships traveling between the stars. This book discusses as well the inadequacy of space communication systems as a means of providing an instantaneous and uninterrupted service. The final chapter deals with predictions about the utility of space flight.
This book is a valuable resource for readers who are interested in space science and technology.
