Continuing the popular Haynes Owners' Workshop Manual space series, which currently comprises Apollo 11 Manual and NASA Space Shuttle Manual, this unique book provides an insight into the only car ever built to be driven on the surface of another world. With a Foreword by the first Apollo astronaut to drive it on the Moon, Dave Scott, and published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of mankind’s final drive on the Moon in December 2012. The book is part mechanical guide, illustrated with many of the technical drawings from the time, and part narrative-driven story of engineering ingenuity and human triumph. It draws on the rich NASA photographic archive and the complete transcripts of the crews' reaction to driving across the Moon, which the authors have an un-paralleled knowledge and experience of working with.

This research topic was first established in China by Professor ShengZhao Long in 1981, with direct support from one of the greatest modern Chinese scientists, XueSen Qian. In a letter to ShengZhao Long from October 22nd, 1993, XueSen Qian wrote: “You have created a very important modern science subject and technology in China!” MMESE primarily focuses on the relationship between Man, Machine and Environment, studying the optimum combination of man-machine-environment systems. In this system, “Man” refers to working people as the subject in the workplace (e.g. operators, decision-makers); “Machine” is the general name for any object controlled by Man (including tools, machinery, computers, systems and technologies), and “Environment” describes the specific working conditions under which Man and Machine interact (e.g. temperature, noise, vibration, hazardous gases etc.). The three goals of optimization are to ensure safety, efficiency and economy. These proceedings are an academic showcase of the best papers selected from more than 400 submissions, introducing readers to the top research topics and the latest developmental trends in the theory and application of MMESE. These proceedings are interdisciplinary studies on the concepts and methods of physiology, psychology, system engineering, computer science, environment science, management, education, and other related disciplines. Researchers and professionals who study an interdisciplinary subject crossing above disciplines or researchers on MMESE subject will be mainly benefited from these proceedings.

Few launch vehicles are as iconic and distinctive as NASA's behemoth rocket, the Saturn V, and none left such a lasting impression on those who watched it ascend. Developed with the specific brief to send humans to the Moon, it pushed rocketry to new scales. Its greatest triumph is that it achieved its goal repeatedly with an enviable record of mission success. Haynes' Saturn V Manual tells the story of this magnificent and hugely powerful machine. It explains how each of the vehicle's three stages worked; Boeing's S-IC first stage with a power output as great as the UK's peak electricity consumption, North American Aviation's S-II troubled second stage, Douglas's workhorse S-IVB third stage with its instrument unit brain - as much a spacecraft as a rocket. From the decision to build it to the operation of its engines' valves and pumps, this lavishly illustrated and deeply informative book offers a deeper appreciation of the amazing Saturn V.

There is renewed interest in the Moon in recent years, with the news that a Chinese lunar rover landed on the Moon in January 2014, and NASA announcing that it is looking for private partners to land a robot on the Moon's surface, as the first step in a programme to exploit the commercial opportunities offered by the Moon. Recent lunar expeditions by both orbiting spacecraft and 'landers' have uncovered far more detail about the Moon's surface and geology, including the trail of Neil Armstrong's first walk on the Moon in 1969. This manual explains in simple and straightforward terms, with a wealth of illustrations and photographs, what we have discovered about the Moon over the centuries, along with a general overview of the vehicles involved in the exploration.

The world-famous Apollo 13 mission and dramatic explosion on the service module, captured in technical detail like you’ve never seen before. On April 13, 1970, NASA’s Apollo 13 suffered a near-catastrophic explosion in space. The planned lunar landing that day was promptly called off, and a new challenge prioritized: get the spacecraft safely back to Earth. Written by David Baker, an original member of NASA’s Apollo 13 Houston Mission Control team, Apollo 13 Owners’ Workshop Manual offers unprecedented, meticulous coverage of the Apollo 13 mission. Beginning with an overview of the era’s equipment and technology, Baker focuses primarily on the planning, goals, and execution of the mission itself, including an hour-by-hour timeline of the crew’s near-disaster in space. Additionally, his thorough analysis of the post-flight investigation and lurking design problems with the spacecraft offer the rare viewpoint of a true Apollo 13 insider. Not only does Baker present and analyze the mission itself, but he also celebrates NASA’s legacy in the wake of the event with the redesign of sections of the Apollo spacecraft and the changes to the way later missions were organized, beginning with Apollo 14. In typical fully illustrated Haynes Manual detail, Apollo 13 Owners’ Workshop Manual presents the fascinating circumstances behind a team who recovered their spacecraft just hours before hurtling back into the earth’s atmosphere. But more than that, the book is a brand-new insight into the remarkable story of how clever, improvised engineering, remarkable teamwork, and sheer will to succeed averted a major catastrophe in space.

Postkarten vom Mars

Der erste Fotograf auf dem Roten Planeten

Der Mars - eine fremde Welt, viele Millionen Kilometer von uns entfernt. Aber die Raumsonden Spirit und Opportunity haben den Roten Planeten erreicht und unglaubliche Bilder von dessen Oberfläche zur Erde zurückgesandt. Dieses Buch präsentiert die eindrucksvollsten Aufnahmen - planetarische Landschaftsfotografie vom Feinsten! - und begleitet sie mit den spannenden Erläuterungen von Jim Bell, dem leitenden Fotografen der Mission. Ein Text-Bild-Band aus erster Hand im großen Sonderformat. Ein "Wow!"-Buch für alle Astro- und Weltraum-Fans. Die Reise der beiden Roboterfahrzeuge Spirit und Opportunity zum Mars und ihre nun schon viele Jahre währende Kundschaftertätigkeit dort zählen zu den aufregendsten Unternehmungen des modernen Raumfahrtzeitalters. Ihre Landung mit einer verwirrenden Vielfalt wissenschaftlicher Instrumente und je einer einmaligen Stereo-Panoramakamera an Bord war der Höhepunkt von Jahren wissenschaftlicher und technologischer Entwicklungsarbeit. Die Ingenieure hatten erwartet, dass die Kameras auf ihren solarbetriebenen Rovern etwa drei Monate lang Bilder aufnehmen würden. Keiner wagte zu hoffen, dass diese unglaublichen Roboter nach vier Jahren immer noch die Ebenen und Berge des Mars erforschen würden. Bis heute haben sie über 200.000 Bilder nach Hause geschickt; einige benötigten mehrere Tage, bis sie uns durch den Weltraum über die riesige Distanz erreicht haben. Schon zu Beginn der Mission wurde Jim Bell die schwere Aufgabe übertragen, die Welt mit diesen historischen Ansichten zu versorgen. Jedes Farbbild, das vom Mars zur Erde kam, wanderte zuerst durch sein Notebook, bevor es verschickt oder gedruckt wurde. Jetzt hat er die Auswahl und Bearbeitung dieser Bilder – manche 20.000 Pixel breit – für das großformatige Jahrhundertbuch, das sie verdienen, fertiggestellt. Für die deutsche Ausgabe hat Jim Bell nicht nur ein neues Nachwort verfasst, sondern auch 5 spektakuläre neue Aufnahmen vom Mars aus den letzten Monaten (bis Juli 2007!) hinzugefügt. Vier der atemberaubendsten hyperrealistischen Panoramabildern sind auf großartigen, mehr als einen Meter breiten ausklappbaren Seiten gedruckt. Doch auch Fotos von Mikroskopkameras sind in dem Band zu sehen: Sie zeigen Nahaufnahmen von fremdartigen und doch vertrauten Felsen und Böden, über die die Rover Spirit und Opportunity gerollt sind. Nie zuvor hat ein menschliches Werkzeug so tiefschürfende Gedanken über unseren Platz im Universum in uns ausgelöst. Postkarten vom Mars ist ein Meisterstück sowohl der Kunst als auch der Wissenschaft. Zum ersten Mal, seit es Leben auf der Erde gibt, können wir erfahren, wie es ist, auf der Oberfläche eines anderen Planeten zu sein. Jim Bells Buch eröffnet uns dieses einmalige Fenster in Zeit und Raum. "An amazing picture book by the man in charge of the rover mission cameras on the planet's surface. The first book to give a real experience of being on another planet."
