Download and read online Project Mars in PDF and EPUB This never-before-printed science fiction novel by the original 'rocket man', Dr Wernher von Braun, combines technical fact with a human story line in the way that only a true dreamer can realise. Written more than half a century ago, this enthusiastic tale of human space exploration, based on detailed and accurate science, has lingered unpublished in von Brauns personal files until now, nearly 30 years after his death and 57 years after it was written. This exclusive von Braun treasure comes complete with an appendix of his original calculations and technical drawings, made in the late 1940s, on which the story's journey is based. This novel takes the reader through the entire adventure -- the planning for a Mars mission, the building of the mighty space ships, the long journey, the amazing discoveries made on Mars, and the return home. Gary Holt, former Chief Instructor of Rocket Pilots for the US Space Force, leads a 10-ship multinational team to Mars -- a Mars with one surprising difference from our Mars! -- and after spending months exploring the red planet, brings his mission home a complete success. The author's detailed attention to the actions and feelings of the characters -- both those who went and those who stayed behind -- makes this an adventure of human proportions, rather than merely another fanciful tale.

Download and read online AUF ZWEI PLANETEN in PDF and EPUB Deutsche Forscher verunglücken am Nordpol mit ihrem Ballon und entdecken dort eine geheime Station der Marsianer. Das erste Zusammentreffen der fremden Kulturen ist friedlich, doch später kommt es zur Konfrontation: die Marsianer besetzen die Erde, um die aus ihrer Sicht primitive und moralisch unterentwickelte Menschheit zum Besseren zu erziehen. Während die Marsianer durch ihre Begegnung mit den Menschen verrohen und entgegen ihrer ursprünglichen Absicht zu Unterdrückern und Besatzern werden, vereint der gemeinsame Feind die Menschen über National- und Standesgrenzen hinweg zum gemeinsamen Widerstand gegen die Fremdherrschaft. Auf zwei Planeten, erstmals im Jahre 1897 erschienen, ist ein großer Klassiker der SF-Literatur, ein spannender und mitreißender Zukunftsroman, und bildet den Auftakt zur Apex-Reihe Science-Fiction-Klassiker.
Download and read online Expedition Mars in PDF and EPUB The technical challenges of a human expedition to Mars are the principal theme to be explored by Martin Turner in Expedition Mars. The author begins by describing how the very latest rocket propulsion and spacecraft technology, and planned developments in nuclear and electric propulsion technologies, are the key factors which will enable a human expedition to Mars to take place. Of particular importance are the challenges of transporting cargo to Mars and in providing necessary life support for the crew, including the supply of consumables, such as food, water, air and fuel, for the return journey. In this regard the author considers how the International Space Station fits into the strategy for a human journey to the Red Planet, in its preparation of astronauts for long-duration spaceflight and the possible hazards posed by space radiation and prolonged weightlessness. The author discusses the relative merits of fast and slow journeys to Mars, i.e. is quicker also safer and cheaper? Also of importance is the role of unmanned robotic explorers in preparing the ground for human activities on Mars and in defining what the surface of Mars is like. The means by which future explorers will live and work on Mars are also explored, including issues such as habitation, modules, Mars buggies, spacesuits, scientific experiments and communications with Earth. He concludes by looking at the possible political obstacles to such a journey, but points out that sooner or later humans will have to make a choice; stay here on Earth or explore the Solar System beyond. One route takes us nowhere, the other leads to the stars.

This go-to reference guide provides the reader with insights into the myriad issues arising from the project's loss of funding, loss of sponsorship, loss of TV rights. It explains what contributed to an overly optimistic assessment of Mars One's mission-specific technology, and what captivated the public and the many willing candidates despite these flaws. From the author of Survival and Sacrifice in Mars Exploration (2015) among many more books on spacefaring, this is yet another up-to-the-minute account of an emerging player in the private space market from an expert on the subject.
