            Investigations in space have been conducted in both manned and unmanned space vehicles. Space: Technologies, Materials and Structures explains the development of hardware and instrumentation designed to operate in the severe conditions of space. For the operation and repair of su...ch vehicles, engineers and scientists must consider a broad range of practical issues, such as the construction and mounting of extended large structures, discussed here using the Mir space station as a case study. Another consideration is the manufacture of permanent joins by welding and brazing, as well as the application of various coatings by thermal evaporation. Astrophysicists, engineers and applied mathematicians will benefit from this volume.

            Discusses some techniques used to obtain numerical solutions of the equations of motion for planets and satellites. This book also introduces the two-body problem and solves it by developing six integrals of the motion, starting from Newton's three laws of motion and his law of g...ravitation and then using vector algebra to develop the integrals.
