Astronautics and Aeronautics, 1970; Chronology on Science, Technology, and Policy, NASA SP-4015. Science Library of Congress, Technology Division.
Washington, DC: GPO, 1972. presumed First Edition, First printing thus. ix, [1], 510, [4] pages. Wraps. Illustrations. Chronology of major NASA launches. Chronology of manned space flight, 1970. Index. Small creases to front cover, rear cover torn, some pages creased, edge soiling, small edge tears. This volume includes information on the Apollo 13 accident and successful return to Earth. NASA SP-4015. Sponsored by the NASA Historical Office. Astronautics (or cosmonautics) is the theory and practice of navigation beyond Earth's atmosphere. The term astronautics was coined in the 1920s by J.-H. Rosny, president of the Goncourt academy, in analogy with aeronautics. Because there is a degree of technical overlap between the two fields, the term aerospace is often used to describe both at once. In 1930, Robert Esnault-Pelterie published the first book on the new research field. As with aeronautics, the restrictions of mass, temperatures, and external forces require that applications in space survive extreme conditions: high-grade vacuum, the radiation bombardment of interplanetary space and the magnetic belts of low Earth orbit. Space launch vehicles must withstand titanic forces, while satellites can experience huge variations in temperature in very brief periods. Extreme constraints on mass cause astronautical engineers to face the constant need to save mass in the design in order to maximize the actual payload that reaches orbit.

Chronology of manned space flight, 1972. Index. NASA SP-4017. Astronautics (or cosmonautics) is the theory and practice of navigation beyond Earth's atmosphere.

Extreme constraints on mass cause astronautical engineers to face the constant need to save mass in the design in order to maximize the actual payload that reaches orbit. The early history of astronautics is theoretical: the fundamental mathematics of space travel was established by Isaac Newton in his 1687 treatise Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica. By the early 1920s, American Robert Goddard was developing liquid-propellant rockets, which would in a few brief decades become a critical component in the designs of such famous rockets as the V-2 and Saturn V.
