It truly is a fantastic, comprehensive book. While there is not much technical depth, it is a truly comprehensive account of the development of rocketry, from the ancient Chinese and gun powder, until a quarter of the way into the development of the Shuttle (it was published in ). A fantastic book filled with really interesting by: 1.

Hoerr, with illustrations by Doug Birkholz about the development of the first successful Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV). The book was originally serialized online at HobbySpace, before publication in paperback by the American Institute of Aeronautics and her: AIAA.

(By Rocket to Space). The book explained the mathematics of spaceflight and proposed practical rocket designs and space stations.

This and other books inspired a generation of rocketeers. Rocket societies sprang up around the world, including the German Verein fur Raumschiffart (Society for Space Travel) that led to the development of the V2.

The principles of rocketry were first tested more than 2, years ago, but it's really only been in the past 70 years or so that these machines have been used for applications in. The book starts with a detailed look at the preparation and final countdown of Apollo At launch, the book breaks, and gives a full history of the space race, starting with the development of rocket technology before WWII.

DEVELOPMENT OF THE FIRST SOUNDING ROCKETS. THE WAC CORPORAL [17] The V-2 was a remarkable weapon - it was a decade ahead of Allied rocket was also the "workhorse" of the early American rocket research program. But in the late s, as the captured German components began to deteriorate and the V-2s in consequence became less reliable, scientists turned their interest.

In this book I have tried to make that information available, and to tell the story of the de­ velopment of liquid rocket propellants: the who, and when, and where and how and why of their development.

The story of solid propellants will have to be told by somebody else. This is, in many ways, an auspicious moment for such a book. Liq­. The development of the rocket had its roots in the enthusiastic amateur German rocket societies, which cultivated emerging specialists such as Wernher von Braun; however, it was the German military, using the emerging technology as a weapon for war, which shaped the V Additional Physical Format: Online version: Goddard, Robert Hutchings, Rocket development.

Development Diary $ The Last Rocket was an experiment with two goals: make an awesome iOS game and document the process to better understand what goes into making an awesome game.

Lift Off is the resulting document. Less “how to”, more “what have I done!”, this Development Diary is just that, a diary, consisting of equal parts. The material used in the book has been collected from different countries, as the development of this field has occurred separately due to the classified nature of the subject.

Thus the reader not only has an overall picture of solid rocket propulsion technology but a comprehensive view of its different developmental permutations worldwide.

Rocket Principles. A rocket in its simplest form is a chamber enclosing a gas under pressure.

A small opening at one end of the chamber allows the gas to escape, and in doing so provides a thrust that propels the rocket in the opposite direction.

A good example of this is a balloon.
