The science and design of the hybrid rocket engine By Richard M. Newlands
Paperback: $15.88
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is a textbook about rocket engineering, concentrating on the nitrous oxide hybrid rocket engine, both small and large. It’s also a book about the science of chemical rockets in detail:... More > three of the chapters are full of in-depth rocket science describing how all chemical rockets work. After a first chapter brushing up on the science and maths you’ll need, the book describes the choice and safe use of hybrid rocket propellants, and how they’re handled in practice. Then there are the rocket science chapters. Then you learn how to design, construct, and operate, a large hybrid rocket engine capable of getting you into Space. The book also includes a practical guide to the testing of hybrid rocket engines large and small, and how to fly them safely. Included are full instructions for programming a rocket trajectory simulator in Microsoft Excel, and several appendices containing rocketry information and equations, and instructions on how to design a bell nozzle.< Less

Rockets and Space for Young Rocketeers By Richard Newlands
eBook (ePub): $6.20
If you want to get into Space, how do you go about it? Space is only 62 miles away so why is it so hard to get there? The science of the forces and energies rocket scientists deal with are clearly... More > explained with easy-to-follow diagrams. You’ll find out how a rocket gets the power to overcome gravity and Drag to get into Space. You’ll learn how to steer and stay alive while you’re up there and various ways to design a spacecraft so it gets you back safely. The many illustrations include innovative Spaceships such as Virgin Galactic’s SpaceshipTwo. To get you started with building and flying rockets, there is a practical step-by-step guide to launching a scale model using Estes rocket motors. Tips from experienced rocketeers will get your model rocket flying high and help you get it back in one piece. The final chapter is more challenging: it’s full of in-depth rocket science where you learn how to design and test a large rocket engine capable of getting you into Space!< Less

ROCKET GIRL By GEORGE MORGAN
eBook (PDF): $7.00
The year is 1957. The Cold War. An undeclared Space Race. The United States and the Soviet Union are locked in a battle to see which country will be the first to place a satellite into orbit. ... More > The stakes are high. International prestige, national pride, and the control of a host of emerging technologies are on the line. But when Dr. Wernher Von Braun realizes that his rocket - the Redstone/Jupiter C - will not be powerful enough to reach orbit, he seeks out the help of a young woman in California who may hold the key to putting America back in the Space Race. Born on a small farm in Ray, North Dakota, and recruited as a wartime chemist for the U.S. Government after only one year of college, Mary Sherman suddenly finds herself at the center of a political and technological maelstrom. This new stage play, ROCKET GIRL, is the heretofore untold story of a young woman's crucial contribution to the heroic behind-the-scenes efforts to regain America's rightful place in the coming Age of Space.< Less
