NASA OPERATIONS MANUAL 1958 ONWARDS
An insight into NASA operations, programmes and field-centre facilities
Autore: David Baker
Della Haynes Publishing questo manuale, riccamente illustrato, dedicato alle operazioni, ai programmi e alle installazioni della NASA dal 1958 ai giorni nostri.
This book provides, for the first time, a comprehensive manual explaining how NASA works and operates its various programmes, opening the door to NASA facilities across the United States.
The down-to-earth text provides a directory of information on the various facilities, what they do, the technical parameters of their equipment and laboratory assets, and how it all fits together. A full operations description is provided for each of the 13 primary NASA field centres, moving from a historical introduction to sections on each of the sites, and ending with appendices providing reference information on personnel levels, budgets (as a percentage of total US government expenditure each year), a list of NASA Administrators and relevant information.
A fascinating insight into the US agency responsible for the civilian space programme, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research.
