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.

"Experience the thrill of flying some of the world's most important airplanes and spacecraft. Best of the National Air and Space Museum provides unprecedented access to the most popular museum in the world. The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum hosts an average of seven million visits every year, and the Udvar-Hazy Center--three football fields long and ten stories high--is a phenomenon in its own right: in the first week it was opened, some 250,000 people came through the doors. It now receives more than one million visits annually. Best of the National Air and Space Museum features the best of both museums, from the Challenger space shuttle and the Wright flyer to the Spirit of St. Louis and the stealth bomber. Bob Van der Linden, curator of aeronautics, has selected the most historically important, popular, and just plain impressive aircraft and spacecraft from the collections of both museums to be captured in the book's beautiful full color layouts. Each layout includes intriguing facts of the item's design, use, mission, specifications, and dimensions. It's like your own guided tour!"--Wheelers.co.nz.

"Reise um den Mond" ist ein Roman des französischen Autors Jules Verne.

Die erste deutschsprachige Ausgabe erschien 1873 im Verlag der Gebrüder Légrády in Pest unter dem Titel "Reise um den Mond". Es handelt sich um ein frühes Werk des Science-Fiction-Genres, das die Mondfahrt um fast genau hundert Jahre vorwegnimmt. Allerdings verwenden Vernes Mondfahrer keine Rakete, sondern eine Kanone, und sie landen nicht auf dem Mond.

Dr. Seedhouse provides background information on the fifteen-year history of the China National Space Administration and its long list of accomplishments. Sino-U.S. technological and commercial interests in space are discussed, including their interest in encouraging a potential space race.

Ein Astronaut in vollem Raumanzug taucht aus dem Nichts in einem belebten Einkaufszentrum auf. Vielleicht ein Werbegag? Ein Foto zeigte eine gut gekleidete Frau in einem roten Mantel, die tot am Rand eines Kraters auf der dunklen Seite des Mondes liegt - daneben ihr geliebtes Hundchen Poochie. Vielleicht ein Schwindel? Aber der Doctor und Amy finden bald heraus, dass dies nur unbedeutendere Nebeneffekte in einem teuflischen Plan sind, die komplette Menschheit zu versklaven. Und es gibt nur eine Möglichkeit, sie zu retten: Apollo 23.
