Advances in Space Science and Technology, Volume 9 provides information pertinent to the science and technology of space flight. This book presents the technological aspects of astronautics and reviews the concepts of lunar transportation.
Organized into six chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the varied requirements of life forms on Earth. This text then examines the possible chemical composition of the soil as well as air pressure, radiation, light, and atmospheric composition. Other chapters consider the intriguing theory that fossil life exists on or beneath a hypothetical buried frozen ocean. This book discusses as well the problems of conducting meaningful measurements with fly-through, fly-by, and lander probes. The reader is also introduced to the possible interior composition of the other planets. The final chapter examines the composition of the Sun both theoretically and spectroscopically.
This book is a valuable resource for astronomers, astrogeologists, scientists, research workers, and engineers.
