Washington, DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 1970. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. xiv, , 225,  pages. Wraps. Illustrations. Tables. Appendices. Corner of front cover gone. Ex-library with the usual library markings. This reporting period was highlighted by the Apollo 11 manned lunar landing and the Apollo 12 second manned lunar landing. The two successful Moon missions fulfilled the national goal of a manned lunar landing and safe return within the decade of the sixties and convincingly demonstrated the technological competence of the Apollo program. In addition, these flights showed the value of the space program as a unifying force in international relations, for interest in the Moon landings and in the astronauts transcended national boundaries. This report addresses Manned Space Flight, Scientific Investigations in Space, Space Applications, Advanced Research and Development, The Nuclear Rocket Program, Tracking and Data Acquisition, International Affairs, University Programs, Information and Educational Programs, and Supporting activities.
Springfield, VA: NTIS, 1983. quarto, 75, wraps, illus., figures, tables, references, library pocket stapled inside rear cover, stickers & library stamp front cover small sticker residue on front cover. The Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL, conducts research programs in atmospheric science, materials processing in space, and space sciences, as well as technology programs in space power, materials processes, and space structures.
Washington, DC: National Academy Press, 1992. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover. xvi, , 311,  pages. Figures. Tables. References. Glossary. Appendices. Index. Dramatic political and economic changes throughout the world, coupled with rapid advances in technology, pose an important question for the U.S. Army: What technologies are best suited to defending U.S. interests against tomorrow's military threats? BOARD ON ARMY SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (BAST): The BAST serves as a convening authority for the discussion of science and technology issues of importance to the U.S. Army and formulates independent Army-related studies conducted by the National Academies. In coordination with the Army, the BAST focuses study issues and statements of task and reviews committee membership nominations. BAST committee members are also encouraged to participate in ad hoc committees.
Oak Ridge, TN: Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Booklet. Format is approximately 11 inches by 8.5 inches. Forty pages plus covers. Illustrated covers (color). Illustrations (some in color). Cover has some wear and soiling. This booklet presents information on the history and organization of the laboratory, Plasma Physics, Controlled Fusion, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Chemical Engineering, Reactor Engineering, Reactor Chemistry, Instrumentation and Controls, Health Physics, Isotopes, Reactor Operations, and Technical Information. Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is a multiprogram science and technology national laboratory sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and administered, managed, and operated by a management and operating contractor. Established in 1942, ORNL is the largest science and energy national laboratory in the Department of Energy system (by size) and by annual budget. ORNL is located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, near Knoxville. ORNL's scientific programs focus on materials, neutron science, energy, high-performance computing, systems biology and national security. ORNL partners with the state of Tennessee, universities and industries, to solve challenges in energy, advanced materials, manufacturing, security and physics. The laboratory has several of the world's top supercomputers; among these, Summit is ranked by the TOP500 as the world's second-most powerful supercomputer. The lab also is a leading neutron-science and nuclear-energy research facility that includes the Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor.
Oak Ridge, TN: Oak Ridge National Laboratory operated by Union Carbide Corporation. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Brochure. Format is approximately 11 inches by 8.5 inches. Sixteen pages plus covers. Illustrated covers (color). Illustrations (some in color). References. Cover has slight wear and soiling. The documents starts out with a discussion of Accelerators, Past and Present, High Voltage Accelerator Laboratory, the Accelerator Concept, the Van De Graaff Principle, the Cockcroft-Walton Accelerator, the 3mV Van de Graaff, 5.5MV Van de Graaff, The Tandem Concept, The Tandem van de Graaff, Experimental Nuclear Physics, and Special Facilities. Tasked in 1948 with developing an accelerator program to, initially, produce neutrons for research, Oak Ridge scientists begin acquiring or building Van de Graaff accelerators, the only known source of neutrons with precise energies. They later acquire a Cockcroft-Walton unit, an early particle accelerator named for its inventors, to test radiation effects at lower energies.
