This flagship work charts a complete chronological log of orbital manned spaceflight. Included are the X-15 "astroflights" of the 1960s, and the two 1961 Mercury and Redstone missions which were non-orbital. There is an image depicting each manned spaceflight, and data boxes containing brief biographies of all the space travelers. The main text is a narrative of each mission, its highlights and accomplishments, including the strange facts and humorous stories connected to every mission. The resulting book is a handy reference to all manned spaceflights, the names of astronauts and cosmonauts who flew on each mission, their roles and accomplishments.

“Manned Spaceflight Log” discusses over 40 recent spaceflights from September 2006 through September 2012, a time of great change in human spaceflight history. Following on from “Praxis Manned Spaceflight Log 1961-2006,” the authors continue the story until the end of September 2012, with new chapters detailing the development and accomplishments of human spaceflight, expanded tables and additional photographs, many in color, throughout. The book opens with a new foreword by Colonel Alfred M. Worden, USAF Retired, NASA Astronaut and CMP of Apollo 15, which reflects on the changing history of human spaceflight and the prospects for future operations. The first chapter explains how human spaceflight has approached the different challenges of exploring space and provided the hardware to meet those challenges. This chapter also describes the various attempts to reach orbital flight and the often confusing distinction between ballistic, sub-orbital, and so-called ‘astro-flights’ of the X-15 rocket research aircraft program. Chapter 2 recalls key historic moments and missions across five decades of human spaceflight. Each decade has provided useful lessons for the next and a foundation for future achievement. The new mission entries are collected in the third section in chronological order. A review of the next steps in human spaceflight, including plans to occupy the International Space Station well into the 2020s and the growth of the Chinese manned space program including a large space station and planned base on the Moon, is discussed in Chapter 4. The tables provide a complete up-to-date overview of human spaceflight operations and experience from April 1961 to September 2012 and a selected chronology of important milestones from those years. Completing the book is a comprehensive bibliography that lists all the major Springer-Praxis human spaceflight titles and other important works that provide the reader with a resource to continue further research.

This unique book presents a historical and philatelic survey of Earth exploration from space. It covers all areas of research in which artificial satellites have contributed in designing a new image of our planet and its environment: the atmosphere and ionosphere, the magnetic field, radiation belts and the magnetosphere, weather, remote sensing, mapping of the surface, observation of the oceans and marine environments, geodesy, and the study of life and ecological systems. Stamping the Earth from Space presents the results obtained with the thousands of satellites launched by the two former superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, and also those of the many missions carried out by the ESA, individual European countries, Japan, China, India, and the many emerging space nations. Beautifully illustrated, it contains almost 1100 color reproductions of philatelic items. In addition to topical stamps and thematic postal documents, the book provides an extensive review of astrophilatelic items. The most important space missions are documented through event covers and cards canceled at launch sites, tracking stations, research laboratories, and mission control facilities.

In May 1961, President John F. Kennedy committed the United States to landing a man on the moon before the end of the decade. With just a handful of years to pull it off, NASA authorized the Project Gemini space program, which gathered vital knowledge needed to achieve the nation’s goal. This book introduces the crucial three-step test program employed by the Gemini system, covering: The short unmanned orbital flight of Gemini 1 that tested the compatibility of launch vehicle, spacecraft and ground systems. The unmanned suborbital flight of Gemini 2 to establish the integrity of the reentry system and protective heat shield. The three-orbit manned evaluation flight of Gemini 3, christened ‘Molly Brown’ by her crew. A mission recalled orbit by orbit, using mission transcripts, post-flight reports and the astronauts’ own account of their historic journey. The missions of Project Gemini was the pivotal steppingstone between Project Mercury and the Apollo Program. Following the success of its first two unmanned missions and the exploits of Gus Grissom and John Young on Gemini 3, NASA gained the confidence to plan an even bolder step on its next mission, as described in the next book in this series on Gemini 4.

Frankreich: "Erbfeind" oder "Erneuerer"? Die französische Besatzungspolitik von 1945 bis 1949 galt lange als Hindernis für die deutsch-französische Freundschaft. Aber das Bild muß korrigiert werden. Die französische Politik zeichnete sich bei aller Widersprüchlichkeit durch Eigenständigkeit, Originalität und durch Reformansätze aus, die sich an den Zielen von Demokratisierung, Dezentralisierung und Denazifizierung orientierten. Ein Teil der Reformen versandete jedoch, weil sie den Alltagsbedürfnissen der Bevölkerung nicht entsprachen. Dies zeigen die Autoren am Beispiel des Landes Baden. Eindringlich schildern sie, Alltag und Alltagsnot der Menschen und bringen das in Zusammenhang mit der politischen Geschichte. Die Betroffenen empfanden die französischen Vorhaben trotz überzeugender Konzepte häufig als negativ. Diese Kluft wirkte noch lange nach. Ein Beispiel ist die in der französischen Besatzungszone praktizierte Spielart der Entnazifizierung, die "auto-épuration". Sie sollte nicht schematisch, sondern unter Würdigung der individuellen Umstände die wirklich Schuldigen treffen und zugleich, da die Deutschen selbst entscheidend am Verfahren beteiligt waren, eine gründliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Vergangenheit ermöglichen. Die Art der Verwirklichung ließ die "Selbst-Reinigung" scheitern, doch die Idee kann immer noch eine gewisse Plausibilität beanspruchen. Sie war nicht die einzige Besonderheit Nachkriegsbadens innerhalb der Besatzungszonen. Manches aus der Nachkriegszeit Badens ist vergessen worden, war aber keineswegs bedeutungslos. Dieses Buch hilft mit, es wieder bewußt zu machen.

Hermann Oberth gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Pioniere der Raketentechnik. Visionär waren nicht nur seine umfassende, akribische Untersuchung und Optimierung aller denkbaren Raketenparamter, sondern auch seine Vorschläge zur Raketeninstrumentierung für bemannte und wissenschaftliche Missionen sowie Ideen für Start- und Testanlagen. Die Neuauflage ermöglicht es, die Realisierung von Oberth's "Traum" nachzuvollziehen und mit der heutigen Raumfahrtrealität abzugleichen. Reprint der 5. Auflage von 1984
