Winner of the Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize, a breathtaking elegy to the waning days of human spaceflight as we have known it In the 1960s, humans took their first steps away from Earth, and for a time our possibilities in space seemed endless. But in a time of austerity and in the wake of high-profile disasters like Challenger, that dream has ended. In early 2011, Margaret Lazarus Dean traveled to Cape Canaveral for NASA's last three space shuttle launches in order

This book shares a range of new and diverse insights on On-Orbit Servicing (OOS), and examines its implications especially from political, legal, economic, and security perspectives. OSS has been evolving rapidly and presents both challenges and opportunities, such as in-space repairs, refuelling, refurbishment of spacecraft and servicing satellites, which could play a critical role in extending satellite lifecycles, while also representing a valuable next step in debris mitigation. At the same time, many legal questions have arisen in connection with

Nuclear-powered Earth-orbital-launch probes can place greater payloads in orbit about Mars than chemical vehicles if reactor power exceeds 50 mw. Suitable reactor powers for this missionARE ABOUT 150, 400, AND 1000 MW FOR 33,000-, 81,000-, AND 200,000-LB VEHICLES, RESPECTIVELY. Whereas a 33,000-lb vehicle requires greater than a 200-day coast, a 145-day coast is feasible for an 81,000-lb vehicle. A hydrogen temperature of 4000 F in the nozzle appears to be a good compromise. Use of a solid-propellant rocket to achieve an orbit about Mars from

None of these movies, however, seems to address the elephant in the room—how will humans survive long-term on Mars? The Mars atmosphere is mostly comprised of carbon monoxide and its
