Summary: Twenty-five years ago, humanity embarked on one of its greatest and most far-sighted adventures to explore the outer Solar System. In 1977, the two Voyager space probes set out to explore the giant planets Jupiter and Saturn - a remarkable feat in its own right at the time. Had the Voyager missions ended after their flybys of these two giant worlds, they would still have been rated one of the greatest successes of all time. However, the journeys of both Voyager craft have involved far more than this, including close encounters with Uranus and Neptune, revolutionizing our understanding of these distant worlds. Today, at the beginning of the 21st Century, the two Voyagers continue their lonely journey, having now left the planetary system, and are searching for the edge of our Solar System before embarking on a journey into interstellar space. There can be little doubt that the Voyager mission rates as one of the greatest stories of exploration in the history of human endeavor. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_1852337451
Inhaltsangabe: In Europe's Space Programme - To Ariane and Beyond, author Brian Harvey begins with the fledgling European rocket effort of the 1930s and the key pioneers of the period, examining the significance of the V-2 and the technological advances represented by its development. He shows how the Russians and Americans put their captured V-2s to work, but the European countries were slower to respond. Both Britain and France developed national space programmes in the 1950s and 1960s and the early attempts at European co-operation for launcher development - ELDO and ESRO - are described. The formation of the European Space Agency and the origins of the successful Ariane launcher programme are discussed and Europe's subsequent success in the world launcher market, its cutting-edge role in space applications and European manned spaceflight, are all described in detail.
