Encompassing the fundamentals of spacecraft engineering, the book begins with front-end system-level issues, such as environment, mission analysis and system engineering, and progresses to a detailed examination of subsystem elements which represent the core of spacecraft design - mechanical, electrical, propulsion, thermal, control etc. This fourth edition of the bestselling Spacecraft Systems Engineering title provides the reader with comprehensive coverage of the design of spacecraft and the implementation of space missions, across a wide spectrum of space applications and space science. The text has been thoroughly revised and updated, with each chapter authored by a recognized expert in the field. This book’s authors provide numerous real-life case studies that illustrate forensic engineering methods.

  All the areas of spacecraft systems engineering are covered at an intermediate level of theory and mathematical formulation. One area that is slightly lacking, and can use more detail is the human space flight vehicle e.g., the NASA Orion spacecraft (renamed as MPCV), otherwise a very good and practical book for a spacecraft systems engineer/5(33). Space flight is a comprehensive and innovative part of technology. It encompasses many fields of technology. This monograph presents a cross section of the total field of expertise that is called “space flight”. It provides insight into the design, construction and analysis aspects of spacecraft. As a Spacecraft Engineering student, you will undertake a required number of space-related modules. Your study reaches Master’s level in the fourth year, with further core modules relating to the design of spacecraft technologies and a choice of research-led modules.   Following on from the hugely successful previous editions, the third edition of Spacecraft Systems Engineering incorporates the most recent technological advances in spacecraft and satellite engineering. With emphasis on recent developments in space activities, this new edition has been completely revised/5.

  The famous book of Al-Jazari is one of the best examples; it was written in and is known as the Book of Knowledge of Ingenious Mechanical Devices.
