Written from the perspective of the user rather than the theorist, it discusses the range of launch vehicles in use throughout the world, and includes the very latest details of some of the advanced propulsion systems being developed.
The book covers the fundamentals of the subject, from the basic principles of rocket propulsion and vehicle dynamics through the theory and practice of liquid and solid propellant motors, to new and future developements. The significan new developments in engine types and practical applications are discussed, and a new chapter on nuclear thermal propulsion reflects the revival interest in this possible method of outer solar system robotic exploration.
