            This book includes a selection of 30 reviewed and enhanced manuscripts published during the 15th SpaceOps Conference held in May 2018 in Marseille, France. The selection was driven by their quality and relevance to the space operations community. The papers represent a cross-sect...ion of three main subject areas: Mission Management - management tasks for designing, preparing and operating a particular mission Spacecraft Operations - preparation and implementation of all activities to operate a space vehicle (crewed and uncrewed) under all conditions Ground Operations - preparation, qualification, and operations of a mission dedicated ground segment and appropriate infrastructure including antennas, control centers, and communication means and interfaces This book promotes the SpaceOps Committee's mission to foster the technical interchange on all aspects of space mission operations and ground data systems while promoting and maintaining an international community of space operations experts.

            In nur acht Jahren entwickelten die USA die drei Tr gerraketen der Saturn Reihe, die Astronauten zum Mond und zu Amerikas Raumstation Skylab brachten. Zeitweise waren bis zu 250.000 Menschen mit der Entwicklung der Saturn und ihrem Bau besch ftigt. Der erste von drei B nden ber d...ie Technik des Apolloprogramms behandelt die Saturn, die gr ten und erfolgreichsten Raketen, die jemals gebaut wurden. Dieses Buch wendet sich an diejenigen die mehr ber die Technik und Funktionsweise der Saturn wissen wollen. Es ist eine gute Erg nzung zu anderen B chern die sich vor allem mit den Missionen, Astronauten und Projektgeschichte besch ftigen. Ein eigenes Kapitel erkl rt die Funktionsweise eines Triebwerks und erl utert wie F-1 und J-2 gestartet und abgeschaltet wurden. In drei weiteren Kapiteln wird die Technik und Einsatzgeschichte von Saturn I, Saturn IB und Saturn V ausf hrlich behandelt. Erg nzt wird es um einen Block ber geplante Saturn Upgrades, nicht gebaute Versionen und einen Vergleich der Saturn V mit heute geplanten Schwerlastraketen wie der Ares und SLS. Abgeschlossen wird der Abschnitt mit einer bersicht ber die Starts von SA-1 bis AS-513. Ein weiterer Abschnitt befasst sich mit dem Konkurrenten, der russischen N-1 und warum sie scheiterte. Jedes Kapitel ist in sich geschlossen lesbar. Daten sind in Tabellen zum schnelleren Wiederfinden zusammengefasst und k nnen beim Lesen so bersprungen werden. Erg nzt wird das Werk durch ein Quellenverzeichnis, Literaturempfehlungen und ein Abk rzungsverzeichnis. Es folgen noch die B nde: Das Apolloprogramm 2 - Raumfahrzeuge und Das Apolloprogramm 3 - Mondauto, Anz ge, Experimente, Fluchtturm

            Parting and Enduring is a dialectical effort to understand some consequences of the principle of evolution that threaten the survival of mankind very clearly and directly. Although it has become commonplace to say and hear that humanity faces global perils, we try to explain how ...true this actually is by identifying these dangers. For instance, we believe that the reasons and the logic that brought us to such conclusions are at least as important as the outcome of our investigation, for they contain both the problem and some solutions.
