Astronautics and Aeronautics, 1972; Chronology of Science, Technology, and Policy, NASA SP-4017. Science Library of Congress, Technology Division.
Washington, DC: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1974. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. ix, [1], 580, [6] pages. Wraps. Illustrations. Chronology of major NASA launches, 1972. Chronology of manned space flight, 1972. Index. NASA SP-4017. 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. 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.

Space Weapons; A Handbook of Military Astronauts. John F. Loosbrock, Chief.
New York: Frederick A. Praeger, 1959. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover. [10], 245, [1] pages. Illustrations. Map. A Military Astronautics Glossary. A Space Bibliography. Index. DJ is price clipped. DJ has some wear, soiling, tears and chips. Some endpaper discoloration. Army General Billy Mitchell fought long and hard for the importance of airpower and the need for a strong national defense. Today, we know Mitchell as the father of the United States Air Force. After his passing in 1936, General Henry H. "Hap" Arnold, the commander of World War II Army Forces, succeeded Mitchell as the leading voice for airpower. Nearly a decade later, General Arnold’s advocacy for an independent civilian organization was incorporated as the Air Force Association. Our first national president was noted aviation pioneer and Medal of Honor recipient, General Jimmy Doolittle, who spent AFA’s inaugural year establishing chapters across the country. Air Force Magazine is published by the Association.

Spacelab; An International Success Story. NASA SP-487. Douglas R. Lord.
Washington, DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Scientific and Technical Information Division, 1987. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover. xv, [1], 554 pages. Illustrations (many in color). Figures. Tables. Sources. Appendices, Ex-lib with usual library markings. The author was centrally involved in the conception and birth of Spacelab. He was the NASA Director of this cooperative effort with the European Space Agency and its 10 participating countries from the programs inception until the first delivery of hardware to the United States. The management organizations had not previously worked together, and such a large number of nations had never cooperated to build a manned space system. At the start, the requirements and use of the Spacelab for science and applications were not fully understood. The Spacelab demonstrated in a convincing fashion its ability to be a useful tool for space science and technology. The technical and programmatic challenges were met, Europe joined the Spacefaring community, and international cooperation was strengthened.
