The creation and utilization of the International Space Station (ISS) is a milestone in space exploration. But without the Space Shuttle, it would have remained an impossible dream. Assembling and Supplying the ISS is the story of how, between 1998 and 2011, the Shuttle became the platform which enabled the construction and continued operation of the primary scientific research facility in Earth orbit. Fulfilling an objective it had been designed to complete decades before, 37 Shuttle missions carried the majority of the hardware needed to build the ISS and then acted as a ferry and supply train for early resident crews to the station. Building upon the decades of development and experience described in the companion volume Linking the Space Shuttle and Space Stations: Early Docking Technologies from Concept to Implementation, this book explores • a purpose-built hardware processing facility • challenging spacewalking objectives • extensive robotic operations • undocking a unmanned orbiter The experience and expertise gained through these missions allows space planners to improve space construction skills in advance of even more ambitious plans in the future.

At first glance, it looks like just another auditorium in just another government building. But among the talented men (and later women) who worked in mission control, the room located on the third floor of Building 30--at what is now Johnson Space Center--would become known by many as "the Cathedral." These members of the space program were the brightest of their generations, making split-second decisions that determined the success or failure of a mission. The flight controllers, each supported by a staff of specialists, were the most visible part of the operation, running the missions, talking to the heavens, troubleshooting issues on board, and, ultimately, attempting to bring everyone safely back home. None of NASA's storied accomplishments would have been possible without these people. Interviews with dozens of individuals who worked in the historic third-floor mission control room bring the compelling stories to life. Go, Flight! is a real-world reminder of where we have been and where we could go again given the right political and social climate.

»Von Zeit zu Zeit erscheinen vor den Fenstern eines Raumschiffs Wunder ...« Millionen haben das Video gesehen, in dem der Astronaut Chris Hadfield singend und Gitarre spielend durch die Raumstation ISS schwebt. Fasziniert schauen die Menschen seither nach oben: Wie verändert der Blick aus 400 km Höhe die Sicht auf unser Leben? Chris Hadfield nimmt uns mit in schwindelerregende Sphären: Er erzählt von riskanten Manövern und von der Kunst, stets auf das Schlimmste vorbereitet zu sein und zugleich an das Unmögliche zu glauben. Chris Hadfield ist neun Jahre alt, als er im Juli 1969 die Mondlandung live im Fernsehen verfolgt. Augenblicklich weiß er, was er werden will: Astronaut! Mittlerweile hat er an die 4000 Stunden im Weltraum verbracht und gehört zu den erfahrensten Raumfahrern der Welt – zuletzt als Kommandeur der internationalen Raumstation ISS. Jetzt nimmt er uns mit in den Weltraum: Wir erfahren, wie man überhaupt Astronaut wird (für alle, die den Traum noch nicht aufgegeben haben), was man dafür alles können muss (u.a. Schwimmen!, Toiletten reparieren), wie sich der erste Raketenstart anfühlt (als säße man in einem Container, der von einem riesigen LKW gerammt wird) und was man beim ersten Raumspaziergang beachten muss. Eine realistische, humorvolle, aber auch demütige Liebeserklärung an das Leben auf der Erde und die Wunder des Universums, die uns zeigt, wie viel Bodenhaftung man braucht, um abheben zu können.

Throughout flight's first 100 years, Purdue University has propelled unique contributions from pioneer educators, aviators, and engineers who flew balloons into the stratosphere, barnstormed the countryside, helped break the sound barrier, and left footprints in lunar soil. Wings of Their Dreams follows the flight plans and footsteps of aviation's pioneers and trailblazers across the twentieth century, a path from Kitty Hawk to the Sea of Tranquility and beyond. The book reminds readers that the first and last men to land on the moon first trekked across the West Lafayette, Indiana, campus on their journeys into the heavens and history. This is the story of an aeronautic odyssey of imagination, science, engineering, technology, adventure, courage, danger, and promise. It is the story of the human spirit taking flight, entwined with Purdue's legacy in aviation's history.

In 1869 the State of Indiana founded Purdue University as Indiana's land-grant university dedicated to agriculture and engineering. Today, Purdue stands as one of the elite research and education institutions in the world. Its halls have been home to Nobel Prize- and World Food Prize-winning faculty, record-setting astronauts, laurelled humanists, researchers, and leaders of industry. Its thirteen colleges and schools span the sciences, liberal arts, management, and veterinary medicine, boasting more than 450,000 living alumni. Ever True: The First 150 Years of Purdue University by John Norberg captures the essence of this great university. In this volume, Norberg takes readers beyond the iconic redbrick walls of Purdue University's West Lafayette campus to delve into the stories of the faculty, alumni, and leaders who make up this remarkable institution's distinguished history. Written to commemorate Purdue University's sesquicentennial celebrations, Ever True picks up where prior histories leave off, bringing the intricacies of historic tales to the forefront, updating the Purdue story to the present, and looking to the future.

Ein heftiger Schlag. Rotes Blut im Wasser des Sees. Danach nur noch Schwarz. Anna Winger starb nicht an jenem Tag, aber seither lebt sie in Angst. Rastlos zieht sie mit ihrem Sohn von Stadt zu Stadt, scheut den Kontakt zu anderen Menschen. Als Graphologin muss sie ihr Gegenüber nicht sehen, um in ihm lesen zu können, es reicht ein Blick auf dessen Handschrift. Dann verschwindet ein zweijähriger Junge und seine Babysitterin wird ermordet. Die einzige Spur: eine handschriftliche Notiz. Anna wird hinzugezogen, und alles, was sie für immer hinter sich lassen wollte – die Dunkelheit, die Gewalt, der Tod –, drängt unaufhaltsam an die Oberfläche ...
