Travelling from the edge of our Solar System, through the Milky Way and to the outer edges of the observable universe, Deep Space is a spectacular photographic guide to galaxies, nebulae, supernova, clusters, black holes, and quasars. Learn about the birth of stars in our own galaxy, planets beyond our own solar system, when they were first discovered and how we have managed to photograph these places. Ranging from the Magellanic Clouds within the Milky Way to stellar life cycles, from other spiral galaxies such as the Andromeda Galaxy, to the Sombrero Galaxy, and from nebulae such as the Pillars of Creation to black and white dwarfs, this is accessibly written for the general reader to grasp the science and magnitude of deep space. Featuring 200 outstanding color photographs and expert captions, Deep Space is most certainly out of this world.

Govert Schilling explores the mysteries of space that lie beyond our solar system on this mind-bending trip to nebulae, galaxies, black holes, and the edge of the observable universe. Join Govert Schilling on a journey across the universe that will ignite the imagination. The trip begins inside our own solar system with a brief tour of the sun, the planets and their moons, asteroids, comets, and dwarf planets. We then accelerate into deep space, traveling from our interstellar neighborhood, through our own galaxy, the Milky Way, to the far reaches of the cosmos. With Schilling as our guide, we explore the birth of stars and stellar nurseries, such as the Orion and Carina Nebulae; the death of stars, from red giants to catastrophic supernova explosions; and galaxies and galaxy clusters beyond our own including spiral galaxies, elliptical galaxies, and lenticular galaxies. We learn about supermassive black holes, which astronomers now believe exist at the center of every galaxy including our own, and exoplanets, billions of which are believed to be orbiting stars in the Milky Way and beyond. The book concludes at the edge of the cosmological horizon with a look at dark matter, dark energy, and theories of extraterrestrial life and the Multiverse. Including hundreds of photographs and custom illustrations, as well as a star atlas that shows the full celestial sky, Deep Space is the perfect book for astronomy buffs, students, and anyone fascinated with the mystery and beauty of the cosmos.

A collection of some of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's space missions selected to represent the planetary communications designs for a progression of various types of missions The text uses a case study approach to show the communications link performance resulting from the planetary communications design developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). This is accomplished through the description of the design and performance of six representative planetary missions. These six cases illustrate progression through time of the communications system's capabilities and performance from 1970s technology to the most recent missions. The six missions discussed in this book span the Voyager for fly-bys in the 1970s, Galileo for orbiters in the 1980s, Deep Space 1 for the 1990s, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) for planetary orbiters, Mars Exploration Rover (MER) for planetary rovers in the 2000s, and the MSL rover in the 2010s. Deep Space Communications: Provides an overview of the Deep Space Network and its capabilities Examines case studies to illustrate the progression of system design and performance from mission to mission and provides a broad overview of the missions systems described Discusses actual flight mission telecom performance of each system Deep Space Communications serves as a reference for scientists and engineers interested in communications systems for deep-space telecommunications link analysis and design control.

The technology of the next few decades could possibly allow us to explore with robotic probes the closest stars outside our Solar System, and maybe even observe some of the recently discovered planets circling these stars. This book looks at the reasons for exploring our stellar neighbors and at the technologies we are developing to build space probes that can traverse the enormous distances between the stars. In order to reach the nearest stars, we must first develop a propulsion technology that would take our robotic probes there in a reasonable time. Such propulsion technology has radically different requirements from conventional chemical rockets, because of the enormous distances that must be crossed. Surprisingly, many propulsion schemes for interstellar travel have been suggested and await only practical engineering solutions and the political will to make them a reality. This is a result of the tremendous advances in astrophysics that have been made in recent decades and the perseverance and imagination of tenacious theoretical physicists. This book explores these different propulsion schemes – all based on current physics – and the challenges they present to physicists, engineers, and space exploration entrepreneurs. This book will be helpful to anyone who really wants to understand the principles behind and likely future course of interstellar travel and who wants to recognizes the distinctions between pure fantasy (such as Star Trek’s ‘warp drive’) and methods that are grounded in real physics and offer practical technological solutions for exploring the stars in the decades to come.

CARDASSIA. Ravaged by the Dominion War which its leaders helped to begin, this once proud and xenophobic planet is the last place Miles and Keiko O'Brien thought they would build a life. But Cardassia's struggle to make itself anew and to throw off the legacy of its imperial past is hampered by those who prefer the old traditions. Una McCormick weaves a tale which brilliantly captures a world of contradictions: the need to atone and the steely darkness that share the Cardassian soul. ANDOR. From one of the best-known worlds in the Star Trek universe to one of the least. Heather Jarman brings the exotic Andor suberbly to life, with its four sexes, its complex social dilemmas and its ancient, mysterious past.

The fourth bookin the epic saga of humankind'swar of transcendence Humanity had appeared to fend off theSh'daar assault once and for all, though they never learned why the alien empire was driven to halt Earth's advancement toward technological Singularity. But in this war of worlds, victory is always elusive.And now a new battle begins. After twenty years of peace, not one but two fragiletruces are unraveling. Alexander Koenig, the former Navycommander whose heroics forced the Sh'daar intosubmission, has won a second term as President of theUnited States of North America. But pursuing hismandate—sovereignty from the centuries-old EarthConfederation—becomes a risky proposition dueto events taking place on the other side of the galaxy.A Confederation research vessel has been ambushed.Destroyers are descending on a human colony. It seemsthe Sh'daar have betrayed their treaty, and allnations must stand united—or face certain death.

It's an interplanetary disaster! As king of Flurb, Freddy's got it made. Everyone worships him! Well, maybe not everyone. Not Deathsnail, Chewtyke, and Big Bad Wongo—the vicious leaders of nearby planets—who want to publicly pulverize him. Not his scheming sister, Babette, who can't stand being ruled by him. And certainly not the superjealous Wizbad, who will stop at nothing to knock Freddy from his throne!

The Space Age is nearly 50 years old but exploration of the outer planets and beyond has only just begun. Deep-Space Probes Second Edition draws on the latest research to explain why we should explore beyond the edge of the Solar System and how we can build highly sophisticated robot spacecraft to make the journey. Many technical problems remain to be solved, among them propulsion systems to permit far higher velocities, and technologies to build vehicles a fraction of the size of today’s spacecraft. Beyond the range of effective radio control, robot vehicles for exploring deep space will need to be intelligent, ‘thinking’ craft – able to make vital decisions entirely on their own. Gregory Matloff also looks at the possibility for human travel into interstellar space, and some of the immense problems that such journeys would entail. This second edition includes an entirely new chapter on holographic message plaques for future interstellar probes – a NASA-funded project.

With the successful launch of Chandrayaan- 1, India’s Moon Mission, in 2008, and Mangalyaan, India’s Mars Mission, in 2013, India has created history in space missions, and can proudly claim an eminent position among the comity of nations that are in the forefront in such missions. The need to create a state-of-the-art communication system to support such missions was keenly felt from 2003 onwards, when the Chandrayaan was announced. The challenges of building such a Deep Space Network System from concept to realization with indigenous expertise, in a record time of three years, together with the ultimate sweet triumph of success, are captured here in a first person narrative by one of those dedicated scientists who was at the helm of affairs of Chandrayaan-I mission. In this book, complex microwave technology equations are transformed into language that can be understood by all, and the pictorial presentation of the largest deep space communication antenna ever built within the country, is sure to make it visually very pleasant to read and understand. Readers who may be students, teachers, technologists, space scientists and science enthusiasts will surely enjoy reading this book.

In space, no one can hear you scream--but that won't stop private eye Rich Weed from shrieking like a little girl. He probably should've stayed gravity bound at home, but when a representative from transport titan InterSTELLA offers a chance at a wily gang of space pirates, how could Rich say no? Of course, the rep didn't mention Rich would have to join forces with a malcontent bounty hunter and a cow-like alien physicist with a limited grasp of the English language. Now the bounty hunter's flying off the rails, the alien looks like a fraud, and everything about the case smells suspect. To make matters worse, the pirates are out for revenge--and they're coming for Rich.
