            This short book grapples with two vast questions: the nature of our minds, and our place in the wider universe. It considers how one mutually influences the development of the other. The changes and challenges that will accompany the first humans to leave planet Earth and travel ...to another planet, or even further, will not only impact upon our technical capacities, but also represent a watershed moment within our individual and collective human psychology. Many of the problems of resource-use, environmental degradation, and waste or destructive processes are contained in the larger vision of exploring another environment and planet. But the book also offers a shift in perspective that allows us consider humanity from an alternative, more holistic perspective, reappraising our own minds both individually and within dynamic social processes. This book considers our place and purpose in the widest possible perspective, that of space exploration and the much wider natural universe. It doesn't seek to answer these questions, but to provide a perspective to explore even further.

            Since 1981, the biennial International Symposium on Aviation Psychology (ISAP) has been convened for the purposes of (a) presenting the latest research on human performance problems and opportunities within aviation systems, (b) envisioning design solutions that best utilize huma...n capabilities for creating safe and efficient aviation systems, and (c) bringing together scientists, research sponsors, and operators in an effort to bridge the gap between research and applications. Though rooted in the presentations of the 18th ISAP, held in 2015 in Dayton, Ohio, Advances in Aviation Psychology is not simply a collection of selected proceedings papers. Based upon the potential impact of emerging trends, current debates or enduring issues present in their work, select authors were invited to expand upon their work following the benefit of interactions at the symposium. Consequently the volume includes discussion of the most pressing research priorities and the latest scientific and technical priorities for addressing them. This book is the second in a series of volumes. The aim of each volume is not only to report the latest findings in aviation psychology but also to suggest new directions for advancing the field.

            Taking students and instructors step by step through the major issues surrounding the use of English in the aviation industry, this book provides a clear introduction to turning research into practice in the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and a valuable case study o...f applied linguistics in action. With both cutting-edge research and evidence-based practice, the authors, all experts in this field, explore the critical role of English in aviation across a variety of contexts. These include the national and global policies impacting training and language assessment for pilots, air-traffic controllers, ground staff and students. Focusing on a very important but not well addressed area of ESP research and pedagogy, this book uses a range of corpus-based findings, simulator transcripts, and related research to provide an effective and efficient analysis of the language needs of the aviation industry and an extended look at linguistic principles in action. With case studies, transcriptions, radiotelephony and a clear breakdown of the common vocabulary and phrasal patterns of aviation discourse, the book offers students and teachers an insight into the requirements and challenges of successful intercultural communication in this industry, as well as clarifying how to teach, develop and assess aviation English language courses.
