Originaltext und ausführlicher historischer Kommentar von Bernd Lukasch.
Die Erstausgabe des Buches von Otto Lilienthal aus dem Jahr 1889 gehört heute zu den bibliophilen Kostbarkeiten ersten levels, battle sie doch eines der wenigen Bücher, die große technische Entwicklungen voraussahen und nach sich zogen. Der Grund für seine heutige Popularität liegt vor allem darin, dass Lilienthal mit seinem Buch nicht nur die bis heute gültigen physikalischen Grundlagen des Phänomens „Fliegen“ legte, sondern wenige Jahre später selbst zum erfolgreichen Anwender seiner Theorie und damit zum ersten „fliegenden Menschen“ wurde. Das Buch steht damit am Beginn der Technikgeschichte des Flugzeugs, die wie wohl keine andere technische Disziplin eine Jahrhunderte alte Vorgeschichte hat, die Kulturgeschichte des Ikaridentraums. Die kommentierte Neuauflage beleuchtet mit der Bedeutung und Entstehungsgeschichte des Buches auch dessen Platz im Lebenswerk des Autors.

The firsthand account of the pains and tribulations of engineering one of the main advanced items of house know-how, the Mars Rover interest, by means of its leader engineer Rob Manning
In the process our enduring quest for wisdom approximately ourselves and our universe, we have not came upon solutions to at least one of our so much primary questions: Does existence exist at any place else within the universe? Ten years and billions of bucks within the making, the Mars Rover interest is poised to reply to this all-important question.
In Mars Rover interest: An within Account from Curiosity's leader Engineer, Rob Manning, the project's leader engineer, tells of bringing the groundbreaking spacecraft to existence. Manning and his workforce at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, tasked with designing a lander repeatedly greater and extra advanced than any sooner than, confronted technical setbacks, fights over insufficient assets, and the demanding situations of top a military of excellent, passionate, and infrequently annoyed experts.
Manning's interesting own account--which contains details from his particular interviews with top interest scientists--is jam-packed with stories of progressive feats of technological know-how, know-how, and engineering. Readers adventure firsthand the disgruntlement at encountering continual technical difficulties, the suffering of close to defeat, the feel of victory at discovering leading edge ideas to those difficulties, the sheer terror of staking careers and reputations on a lander that could not be demonstrated on the earth, and the frenzy of triumph at its profitable landing on Mars on August five, 2012. this can be the tale of endurance, commitment, and unrelenting interest.
Provides the fundamentals of spacecraft orbital dynamics plus perspective dynamics and keep an eye on, utilizing vectrix notation
Spacecraft Dynamics and keep an eye on: An Introduction provides the basics of classical keep watch over within the context of spacecraft angle regulate. This technique is very worthy for the educational of scholars in either one of the topics of classical regulate in addition to its software to spacecraft perspective regulate. by utilizing a actual approach (a spacecraft) that the reader can visualize (rather than arbitrary move functions), it truly is more straightforward to understand the incentive for why issues up to the mark idea are vital, in addition to the speculation in the back of them. the complete remedy of either orbital and angle dynamics uses vectrix notation, that's a device that permits the person to put in writing any vector equation of movement with out attention of a reference body. this is often rather fitted to the therapy of a number of reference frames. Vectrix notation additionally makes a really transparent contrast among a actual vector and its coordinate illustration in a reference body. this is often vitally important in spacecraft dynamics and regulate difficulties, the place frequently a number of coordinate representations are used (in diverse reference frames) for a similar actual vector.
