This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the physical phenomena that result from the interaction of the sun and the planets - often termed space weather. Physics of the Space Environment explores the basic processes in the Sun, in the interplanetary medium, in the near-Earth space, and down into the atmosphere. The first part of the book summarizes fundamental elements of transport theory relevant for the atmosphere, ionosphere and the magnetosphere. This theory is then applied to physical phenomena in the space environment. The fundamental physical processes are emphasized throughout, and basic concepts and methods are derived from first principles. This book is unique in its balanced treatment of space plasma and aeronomical phenomena. Students and researchers with a basic mathematics and physics background will find this book invaluable in the study of phenomena in the space environment.

This insider's account, a penetrating view of science policy and politics during two presidencies, captures the euphoria that characterized the space program in the late seventies and early eighties and furnishes an invaluable perspective on the Challenger tragedy and the future of the United States in space. President Reagan's approval of $8 billion for the construction of a permanently manned orbiting space station climaxed one of the most important political and technological debates in the history of the U.S. program in space. In The Space Station the story of this debate is told by Hans mark, who had major roles in the development of the space shuttle from its beginnings in the sixties and who bore a primary responsibility for overseeing the space station project during the decisive years from 1981 to 1984. Mark's appointment to the post of deputy administrator of NASA capped a career devoted to the development and management of space technology—he served as director of NASA's Ames Research Center, then as under secretary and later secretary of the U.S. Air Force. Serving under both President Carter and President Reagan, mark is uniquely able to chronicle the intricate process by which the space shuttle became a reality and the space station an acknowledged goal of the American space effort. A scientist by training, Mark's account of his career in the space program is the story of a personal dream as well as the story of a vast public enterprise whose human side is only now being fully appreciated.

This book is as a detailed, but highly readable and balanced account of the history of animal space flights carried out by all nations, but principally the United States and the Soviet Union. It explores the ways in which animal high-altitude and space flight research impacted on space flight biomedicine and technology, and how the results - both successful and disappointing - allowed human beings to then undertake that same hazardous journey with far greater understanding and confidence. This complete and authoritative book will undoubtedly become the ultimate authority on animal space flights.

The goals of the 10th International Space Conference on “Protection of Materials and Structures from Space Environment” ICPMSE-10J, since its inception in 1992, have been to facilitate exchanges between members of the various engineering and science disciplines involved in the development of space materials, including aspects of LEO, GEO and Deep Space environments, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operational vehicles that are closely interrelated to disciplines of the atmospheric sciences, solar-terrestrial interactions and space life sciences. The knowledge of environmental conditions on and around the Moon, Mars, Venus and the low Earth orbit as well as other possible candidates for landing such as asteroids have become an important issue, and protecting both hardware and human life from the effects of space environments has taken on a new meaning in light of the increased interest in space travel and colonization of other planets. And while many material experiments have been carried out on the ground and in open space in the last 50 years (LDEF, MEEP, SARE, MISSE, AOP, DSPSE, ESEM, EURECA, HST, MDIM, MIS, MPID, MPAC and SEED), many questions regarding the environmental impact of space on materials remain either poorly understood or unanswered. The coming generations of scientists will have to continue this work and tackle new challenges, continuing to build the level of confidence humans will need to continue the colonization of space. It is hoped that the proceedings of the ICPMSE-10J presented in this book will constitute a small contribution to doing so.

Starting with the February, 1946 issue, the comic book Captain Marvel Adventures included a 2-page short story by "Eando Binder" (Otto O. Binder). Each story featured Lt. Jon Jarl of the Space Patrol. These juvenile space operas -- designed to appeal to kids -- featured daring-do by a two-fisted young member of the Space Patrol. In a solar system where seemingly every planet and moon supports life (and the asteroid belt harbors an endless supply of space pirates and criminals), Jon Jarl always saves the day. If you've seen the early TV adventures of Captain Video and His Video Rangers, Space Patrol (not related to Binder's series), or Tom Corbett, Space Cadet -- which were clearly influenced by Binder’s writing (as well as the shared universe of "space opera" that had been developed in Amazing Stories magazine under editor Ray Palmer) -- you will know what you’re in for...a ride into the Wild West of outer space, where physics and logic never get in the way of a good story!

For many parents, raising children seems pretty manageable until the teenage years. Then fear, confusion, frustration, and lack of understanding begin toinvade the hearts and minds of these once-confident parents. The “normal” changes of adolescence seem to be nothing but abnormal to parents who begin to feel like helpless bystanders. But parents don’t need to feel alone or paralyzed by these feelings. For nearly twenty years, Walt Mueller has studied adolescents and the culture they’re surrounded by. His expertise was put to the test when his own children became teenagers. Now he’s bringing wisdom from research and his own experience to help parents through the tumultuousyears of adolescence. With empathy and practical tools, parents will address several important issues, including the questions:• How can I begin to facilitate a smoother adolescentperiod for my teen?• How can I begin to break through the walls ofconfusion, fear, frustration, and misunderstanding?• How can I be a positive and proactive bridgebuilderinto the life and world of my teenager?

In the present work, a coordinate-free way is suggested to handle conformal maps of a Rie­mannian sur­face into a space of constant curvature of maximum dimension 4, modeled on the non-commutative field of quaternions. This setup for the target space and the idea to treat dif­fe­rential 2-forms on Rie­mannian surfaces as quadratic functions on the tangent space, are the starting points for the development of the theory of conformal maps and in particular of con­formal immersions. As a first result, very nice condi­tions for the conformality of immersions into 3- and 4-dimensional space-forms are deduced and a sim­ple way to write the second fun­damental form is found. If the target space is euclidean 3-space, an alternative approach is proposed by fixing a spin structure on the Rie­mannian surface. The problem of finding a local immersion is then reduced to that of solving a linear Dirac equation with a potential whose square is the Willmore in­tegrand. This allows to make statements about the structure of the moduli space of conformal immersions and to derive a very nice criterion for a conformal immersion to be con­strained Willmore. As an application the Dirac equation with constant potential over spheres and tori is solved. This yields explicit immersion formulae out of which there were produced pictures, the Dirac-spheres and -tori. These immersions have the property that their Willmore integrand generates a metric of vanishing and constant curvature, respectively. As a next step an affine immersion theory is developped. This means, one starts with a given conformal immersion into euclidean 3-space and looks for new ones in the same conformal class. This is called a spin-transformation and it leads one to solve an affine Dirac equation. Also, it is shown how the coordi­nate-dependent generalized Weierstrass representation fits into the present framework. In particular, it is now natural to consider the class of conformal im­mersions that admit new conformal immersions having the same potential. It turns out, that all geometri­cally interesting immersions admit such an isopotential spin-transformation and that this property of an immersion is even a conformal invariant of the ambient space. It is shown that conformal isothermal immersions generate both via their dual and via Darboux trans­formations non-trivial families of new isopotential conformal immersions. Similarly to this, conformal (constrained) Willmore immersions produce non-trivial families of isopotential im­mer­sions of which subfamilies are (constrained) Willmore again having even the same Will­more integral. Another obser­vation is, that the Euler-Lagrange equation for the Willmore pro­blem is the integrability condition for a quaternionic 1-form, which generates a conformal mi­nimal im­mersions into hyperbolic 4-space. Vice versa, any such immersion determines a con­formal Willmore immersion. As a conse­quence, there is a one-to-one correspondence between con­formal minimal immersions into Lorentzian space and those into hyperbolic space, which gene­ralizes to any dimension. There is also induced an action on conformal minimal immersi­ons into hyperbolic 4-space. Another fact is, that conformal con­stant mean curvature (cmc) immersions into some 3-dimensional space form unveil to be isothermal and constrained Will­more. The reverse statement is true at least for tori. Finally a very simple proof of a theorem by R.Bryant concer­ning Willmore spheres is given. In the last part, time-dependent conformal immersions are considered. Their deformation for­mulae are computed and it is investigated under what conditions the flow commutes with Moe­bius transforma­tions. The modified Novikov-Veselov flow is written down in a conformal in­variant way and explicit deformation formulae for the immersion function itself and all of its invariants are given. This flow commutes with Moebius transformations. Its definition is cou­pled with a delta-bar problem, for which a so­lution is presented under special conditions. These are fulfilled at least by cmc immersions and by sur­faces of revolution and the general flow for­mulae reduce to very nice formulae in these cases.

Space is a matter of strategic importance and in need of concerted action by the European space actors. Distinct approaches to public procurement must not hamper the cooperation between the European Space Agency, the European Union and their respective Member States. The study provides a toolbox for space procurement that addresses specificities of this sector. Each tool is assessed in light of policy objectives, market conditions and the legal frameworks of the European Union and the European Space Agency. A discussion on selected means of policy implementation other than procurement, so-called Extra-Procurement Instruments, complements this toolbox. The Third Way in European space procurement caters for both coherence and flexibility needs and is intended to serve policy-makers as they finally make "Europe in Space" a reality.

In spite of the Challenger and Columbia disasters, the US Space Shuttle, which entered service in 1981, remains the most successful spacecraft ever developed. Conceived and designed as a reusable spacecraft to provide cheap access to low Earth orbit, and to supersede expendable launch vehicles, serving as the National Space Transportation System, it now coexists with a new range of commercial rockets. David Harland’s definitive work on the Space Shuttle explains the scientific contribution the Space Shuttle has made to the international space programme, detailing missions to Mir, Hubble and more recently its role in the assembly of the International Space Station. This substantial revision to existing chapters and extension of ‘The Space Shuttle’, following the loss of Columbia, will include a comprehensive account of the run-up to resumption of operations and conclude with a chapter beyond the Shuttle, looking at possible future concepts for a partly or totally reusable space vehicle which are being considered to replace the Shuttle.

In recent years, considerable progress has been made in studying algebraic cycles using infinitesimal methods. These methods have usually been applied to Hodge-theoretic constructions such as the cycle class and the Abel-Jacobi map. Substantial advances have also occurred in the infinitesimal theory for subvarieties of a given smooth variety, centered around the normal bundle and the obstructions coming from the normal bundle's first cohomology group. Here, Mark Green and Phillip Griffiths set forth the initial stages of an infinitesimal theory for algebraic cycles. The book aims in part to understand the geometric basis and the limitations of Spencer Bloch's beautiful formula for the tangent space to Chow groups. Bloch's formula is motivated by algebraic K-theory and involves differentials over Q. The theory developed here is characterized by the appearance of arithmetic considerations even in the local infinitesimal theory of algebraic cycles. The map from the tangent space to the Hilbert scheme to the tangent space to algebraic cycles passes through a variant of an interesting construction in commutative algebra due to Angéniol and Lejeune-Jalabert. The link between the theory given here and Bloch's formula arises from an interpretation of the Cousin flasque resolution of differentials over Q as the tangent sequence to the Gersten resolution in algebraic K-theory. The case of 0-cycles on a surface is used for illustrative purposes to avoid undue technical complications.
