  • About the Edition

    Although the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, has become synonymous with the United States" planetary exploration during the past half century, its most recent focus has been on Mars. Beginning in the 1990s and continuing through the Mars Phoenix mission of 2007, JPL led the way in engineering an impressive, rapidly evolving succession of Mars orbiters and landers, including roving robotic vehicles whose successful deployment onto the Martian surface posed some of the most complicated technical problems in space flight history. In Exploration and Engineering, Erik M. Conway reveals how JPL engineers" creative technological feats led to major Mars exploration breakthroughs. He takes readers into the heart of the lab"s problem-solving approach and management structure, where talented scientists grappled with technical challenges while also coping, not always successfully, with funding shortfalls, unrealistic schedules, and managerial turmoil. Conway, JPL"s historian, offers an insider"s perspective into the changing goals of Mars exploration, the ways in which sophisticated computer simulations drove the design process, and the remarkable evolution of landing technologies over a thirty-year period.

      As an engineering student, your brain likely works in the same way mine does — analytical, detailed, pattern-oriented, logical — and this book is as if . These include banks and insurance companies just as much as nuclear power plants, oil exploration and production companies, chemical process installations and air, sea and rail transport. Designed for advanced undergraduate or graduate students in engineering or the sciences, this book offers a bridge to the aerodynamics and control of UAV.

He then returned to the industry, obtaining his Colliery Manager’s.

    This third edition of the SME Mining Engineering Handbook reaffirms its international reputation as "the handbook of choice" for today's practicing mining engineer. It distills the body of knowledge that characterizes mining engineering as a disciplinary field and has subsequently helped to inspire and inform generations of mining lly all of the information is original Reviews: 1.   Buy a cheap copy of Exploration and Engineering: The Jet book by Erik M.
