Getting Off the Planet: Training Astronauts - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 1894959205

[SR: 923290], Paperback, [EAN: 9781894959209], Apogee Books, Apogee Books, Book, [PU: Apogee Books], Apogee Books, Today, the training of American astronauts is almost taken for granted, but prior to 1961 no one knew whether humans could function in space at all. Space suits, working in free fall, and surviving the punishing accelerations of launch and re-entry were all complete unknowns. It was well recognised that if we were to send men into space, they would first have to be extensively trained. But what was that training to consist of? And exactly who would provide the training? As it turns out, the training was, at times, as dangerous and demanding as the space flights that followed -- for the training experts as well as the astronauts. At the forefront of the effort to train America's astronauts was Dr Randall Chambers. Over the course of a long and distinguished career he turned his mind (and body) to a wide variety of disciplines, in order to best prepare our astronauts for space flight. It was not unusual for Dr Chambers to put himself in the astronaut's position, literally -- before he would put the astronaut there. Dr Chambers and his co-workers not only had to be the very best in their profession, they had to define and refine that profession as they went along -- pioneers in the truest sense of the word. As the requirements and demands of human space activities increased, the lives of the astronauts were completely dependent on their trainers always being one step ahead of them. Career journalist Mary Jane Chambers has witnessed her husband's career first hand, and has worked with him to present a story that non-scientists will enjoy -- no equations, no charts; but rather a human tale of amazing people. This book is the story of a dedicated man of science, a friend of the astronauts, and an unsung hero of the space age. Behind every successful space program there are special people with the dedication of Dr Randall Chambers., 68, Business, Finance & Law, 268091, Accounting, 659886, Biographies & Histories, 276808, Careers, 404214, E-Commerce, 268153, Economics, 275945, Law, 268290, Management, 268203, Personal Finance, 268179, Professional Finance, 659890, Reference & Education, 268314, Sales & Marketing, 268144, Small Business & Entrepreneurship, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277107, Commercial, 277106, Aviation, 277076, Transport, 59, Reference, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922068, Astronomy, 277887, Charts, 277894, Popular Astronomy, 277888, Star Gazing, 277904, Stars & Interstellar Matter, 278270, Telescopes & Equipment, 277906, Theoretical & Mathematical Astronomy, 277886, Astronomy & Cosmology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277903, Space Travel & Exploration, 277886, Astronomy & Cosmology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278268, Astronautics, 278267, Aeronautics & Aerospace, 278115, Engineering & Technology, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922988, Teaching Aids, 922526, Education, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922864, Applied Physics, 278409, Physics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 570608, Space Travel & Exploration, 564338, Astronomy & Cosmology, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 279900, Air Travel, 279898, Speciality Travel, 83, Travel & Holiday, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Getting Off the Planet: Training Astronauts (Apogee Books Space Series) - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 1894959205

ID: 4964783

A behind-the-scenes look into how NASA prepared its first astronauts for space flight is offered in this detailed and humorous documentary of the early days of the space race. Readers will learn why Dr. Chambers spent the night in a water tank and clocked so many hours in a G-force centrifuge, along with what compelled researchers to offer the flight stick to both humans and chimpanzees. The rigorous yet jargon-free prose is designed for the casual scientist and is interspersed with the often outrageous anecdotes that sprung up during the years of meticulous research and patient, relentless testing that were conducted before America's first manned space flight. Dozens of rare photographs of the space project in the book and on the included CD-ROM are also featured. aeronautics and astronautics,aerospace,air travel,astronomy and space science,astrophysics and space science,biographies,engineering,food lodging and transportation,physics,professionals and academics Astronomy & Space Science, Collector's Guide Publishing, Inc.
