Advances in Space Science and Technology, Volume 7 provides an in depth discussion of both resources and base construction on the Moon. This book discusses the Moon as the nearest astronomical objective and the logical place where man will accumulate the experience needed for more ambitious enterprises.
Organized into seven chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the science of selenology and examines possible substances from which propellants may be processed. This text then assesses the lunar environment in terms of mining and engineering operations. Other chapters consider the problems associated with the location of useful materials, processing propellants, and their storage and transfer. This book discusses as well the utilization of structures made from materials imported from Earth and of those prepared from indigenous materials. The final chapter deals with four major phenomena, namely, interplanetary plasma, magnetic fields, cosmic rays, and dust.
This book is a valuable resource for space scientists and astronomers.
