Humanity’s first reusable spacecraft and the most complex machine ever built, NASA’s Space Shuttle debuted with great promise and as a dependable source of wonder and national pride. But with the Challenger catastrophe in 1986, the whole Space Shuttle program came into question, as did NASA itself, so long an institution that was seemingly above reproach. Wheels Stop tells the stirring story of how, after the Challenger disaster, the Space Shuttle not only recovered but went on to perform its greatest missions. From the Return to Flight mission of STS-26 in 1988 to the last shuttle mission ever on STS-135 in 2011, Wheels Stop takes readers behind the scenes as the shuttle’s crews begin to mend Cold War tensions with the former Soviet Union, conduct vital research, deploy satellites, repair the Hubble Space Telescope, and assist in constructing the International Space Station. It also tells the heart-wrenching story of the Columbia tragedy and the loss of the magnificent STS-107 crew. As complex as the shuttle was, the people it carried into orbit were often more so—and this is their story, too. Close encounters with astronauts, flight controllers, and shuttle workers capture the human side of the Space Shuttle’s amazing journey—and invite readers along for the ride.

New trends of mineral deposits mining in the world consist of intensifying and concentration of mining operations. This is achieved with the help of new technical equipment that is more reliable, having greater service life and more available power. Consideration is given to quantity reduction of stopes and development workings together with their geometrical dimensions growth; also length increase of longwalls and extraction panels is examined. Innovative technologies helping to increase technical-economic indices, extraction volume, working efficiency and safety rules are presented in the book. Specific attention is given to unmanned mineral extraction technologies development using electro-hydraulic management systems of machinery. Plough systems are examined for coal extraction from thin and very thin seams (ranging from 0.8 to 1.2 m of thickness with gaining of stable daily output equal to 2.5-3 thousand tons). Analytical models describing geomechanical interaction between "massif-support" system elements are presented, finite-element method use for research and simulation of stress-strain state around stopes and development workings at coal, ore and other mines are also given. The borehole underground coal gasification technology is introduced with receiving technical gas for electricity generation, and syngas for usage in the chemical industry. Also research of gas hydrates and development of technologies for their extraction from the Black sea bottom is further scrutinized in this book.

TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMOTIVE BRAKE SYSTEMS, 5E provides comprehensive coverage of the theory and repair procedures related to automotive brakes. Your students will benefit from this book's two-volume approach: a Classroom Manual that details the theories and application of the total brake system, sub-system, and components, combined with a corresponding Shop Manual that provides real-world symptoms, diagnostics, and repair information about these systems. This book includes updated information on the latest materials used in brake systems as well as the latest information on current electronics. In addition, there is expanded coverage of electric braking systems that is general enough not to distract your students with highly detailed, manufacturer-specific information. The ASE Challenge questions at the end of each chapter of the Shop Manual and a Practice Exam in the Appendix will prepare your students for the ASE (A5) certification exam. TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMOTIVE BRAKE SYSTEMS, 5E, offers your students all the information they need to understand, diagnose, and repair most problems that might occur with today's brake systems.
