Detailed Description

248 pgs, 2003, Princeton University Press
ISBN 978-0691102993

The Space Environment presents an updated account of the effects of environmental factors such as vacuum, radiation, plasma, and debris, on spacecraft performance. Connecting the environmental studies of physicists to the spacecraft design of engineers, the author discusses design modifications aimed at reducing or eliminating damages including erosion, electrical discharge, and micrometeorite bombardment. Nearly every page features some sort of figure, table, or series of equations to illustrate the points being made, and each chapter concludes with a set of exercises, applicable standards and references, making the book both a valuable textbook and reference.
