Designed with the intent to make this topic accessible to readers from varying backgrounds and areas of expertise, Wiesel presents a three-dimensional coverage of "spaceflight dynamics". This current book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field -giving readers a solid foundation in astronautics. In addition to the information on orbits and spacecraft attitude motion, this text also includes chapters on rocket performance, reentry, inertial navigation, and the space environment. Revised and expanded to include the latest developments in the field, all is presented with a view toward the next century in space.
"The writing style is clear and accessible to students at all levels; the author makes a good use of physical explanations... I like the changes in this revised edition and commend the author on the results of his entreprise (both the first and second editions!)."
Robert G. Melton, Pennsylvania State University
