The bodies of the Solar System, with the exception of most comets, are all contained in a region of space of diameter one thirty-thousandth of the distance to the nearest star; the Sun, planets, satellites,
asteroids, meteors and the interplanetary medium therefore form a closed system, its members reacting upon each other. We consider that building a place where people interested in space exploration can
find or approach the introducing fundamentals of space systems and space mission design in conjunction with practical experience of their application to real-world space engineering problems could be
a an ascertained opportunity to be in a "sympathetic" connection.
This website is intended to satisfy three objectives:
- the first is to provide texts suitable for use in an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course in both space systems engineering and space system design.
- the second is to be a reference for space professionals wishing to broaden their capabilities to develop, manage the development, or operate space systems. In a positiv, free
of personal bias manner, a perfectly valid comment could be made on the above statements: there are plenty of books on the market trying to cover the same subject. Some of them good, some just waisted
paper. This is the reason why an interactiv "subspace" will be added, which brings us to the third objective.
- the third is to be an agora for all those interested in anything that's covered by the first two objectives; this will be achieved with the addition of a forum...Once the forum
is active, feel free to post coments, propose topics, contribute with anything relevant.
