READING: Winner of the Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize, a breathtaking elegy to the waning days of human spaceflight as we have known it In the 1960s, humans took their first steps away from Earth, and for a time our possibilities in space seemed endless. But in a time of austerity and in the wake of high-profile disasters like Challenger, that dream has ended. In early 2011, Margaret Lazarus Dean traveled to Cape Canaveral for NASA's last three space shuttle launches in order to bear witness to the end of an era. With Dean as our guide to Florida's Space Coast and to the history of NASA, Leaving Orbit takes the measure of what American spaceflight has achieved while reckoning with its earlier witnesses, such as Norman Mailer, Tom Wolfe, and Oriana Fallaci. Along the way, Dean meets NASA workers, astronauts, and space fans, gathering possible answers to the question: What does it mean that a spacefaring nation won't be going to space anymore?

READING: 'I could have done with a copy of Ad Astra in December 2015!' –Tim Peake ‘A wonderful, wise and witty guide for space explorers everywhere.' – Richard Osman ‘A must read both for intrepid space explorers and misty-eyed dreamers. Now, to space!’ – Hannah Fry ‘Few people are more knowledgeable, celebratory and witty about space travel than Dallas Campbell.’ – Adam Rutherford Need some space? For almost all human history we’ve been firmly rooted to the Earth. And, sure, it's got some good things going for it: nice views, friendly inhabitants, good coffee. Air. But what if you want to get off? Whether you've got itchy feet and need a bit of a break, or you’re looking for a complete change of scene, this book has all the information you'll need to leave, with FREE expert advice from the men and woman who can actually make it happen. Do I need a passport? How do I know if I have the right stuff? Can I take my dog? What spacesuit do I need? Where am I going to go? What am I going to eat? As well as being a deeply impractical guide to getting off the planet, this is an eclectic and beautifully illustrated mix-tape of space travel stories – both real and imagined. From the migrating lunar geese that flew us to the moon in the 1600’s, to Elon Musk’s wild plan to get humans to Mars en masse in the future; from the history of early rocket science to the Soviet tortoises that secretly won the space race. A collection for anyone who has looked up in wonder at the stars... And then wondered how to get there. ‘The next best thing to actually heading off into space.’ – Jim Al-Khalili ‘Few people are more knowledgeable, celebratory and witty about space travel than Dallas Campbell.’ – Adam Rutherford ‘If, like me, you dream of going into space, this is definitely the place to start the journey.’ – Dan Snow ‘A must have volume for astronauts and armchair astronauts alike.’ – Helen Sharman OBE ‘Funny, factual and beautiful.’ – Shaun Keavney ‘Read it, make notes, and be ready when the day comes.’ – Helen Czerski

Vanaf dag één staat hij voor immense uitdagingen: het gemis van zijn kinderen en geliefde, de risico's van een catastrofale fout, samenwerken in een kleine ruimte, ingewikkelde wetenschappelijke proeven, de lichamelijke effecten van een leven zonder zwaartekracht, én de altijd aanwezige angst dat er thuis iets vreselijks gebeurt en hij er niet bij kan zijn. In dit persoonlijke verslag van een uitzonderlijke missie vertelt Kelly over zijn kleurrijke leven. Hoe hij na een moeilijke jeugd in New Jersey met zijn tweelingbroer en hun alcoholistische ouders toch zijn grote droom weet te verwezenlijken. Een jaar in de ruimte is het verhaal van een astronaut die zijn uithoudingsvermogen tot het uiterste op de proef stelde - over de triomf van de verbeelding, de kracht van de menselijke wil en het onvoorstelbare wonder van ons heelal.

READING: In the future, mankind has moved on. Earth has been used up and abandoned. Colony ships were sent out to the far reaches of space. The human race encountered new worlds and new beings. Inevitably they also brought war with them. In this time, mankind developed at different technological rates on many different worlds. Some worlds kept to the old ways and others strove to get back to the technological age. All the wars that ensued destroyed just as much technology as it created. Just as knowledge was lost as much as it was gained. A group of scientists saw the human race heading for destruction and acted to do something about it. They came to the conclusion that the human race was still only a child, and a child needs to be told what to do. The wars had built many armies. So the scientists offered their services to one of the larger armies and with their new technology, the army won out over all others. However, as with children, once they have tasted candy they always want more. The scientists were raised to positions of high power within the new military and before long they had taken control. But they only had control over the military and not the whole human race but they would stop at nothing to get it. Brad and his rag tag team are the only ones who can stop them.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Director of The Terminator, Aliens and Titanic, James Cameron's latest movie, Avatar, is the most viewed cinema release of all time, yet to date receives little academic attention. Filling the gap, editor of www.DeepFocusFilm.com, Bryn V. Young-Roberts, researches Avatar's historical and cultural relevance with its first in-depth examination while simultaneously discussing the Cameron oeuvre. From the perspective of historical contextualisation and cultural analysis we decipher its socially significant subtext, encouraging a view that Avatar is not exclusively a generic entertainment spectacle. Providing foundations for future studies, we examine the film as metaphor for the Iraq War, advocator of the Internet as liberation tool, and political stance to the Bush administration. Fear of the industrial-military complex, and romantic ideals of Class are also analysed. Ultimately, the volume summarizes Avatar in relation to Cameron's other work and how it fits into our larger, contemporary society.

READING: Robert Jordan, Het Rad des Tijds 1 - Het Oog van de Wereld Het Rad des Tijds is onbetwist de meest aansprekende fantasy-cyclus van de afgelopen decennia. In dit ambitieuze epos verhaalt Robert Jordan van een profetie die lang geleden is gedaan, van een eeuw die lang geleden is voorspeld, de eeuw die nu is wedergekomen op het Rad des Tijds. Alles wat was, wat is en wat zal zijn dreigt nu onder de Schaduw verloren te gaan. Want zo staat het geschreven... 1 Het Oog van de Wereld In het ooit zo vredige dorpje Emondsveld breken roerige tijden aan. Grote gebeurtenissen in de buitenwereld, eerder slechts verre geruchten, werpen hun donkere schaduw over Emondsveld. En daar blijft het niet bij. De komst van onbekende vreemdelingen brengt grote veranderingen met zich mee, veranderingen die niet zijn terug te draaien en die voorgoed het leven van alle betrokkenen zullen veranderen. Er moet iets gebeuren, zoveel is duidelijk. Het gevolg is dat vijf jonge Emondsvelders van huis en haard vertrekken en zo het middelpunt worden van een vernietigende reeks gebeurtenissen die de wereld in heftige beroering zullen brengen. `Verbeelding en vertelkunst evenaren inmiddels die van Tolkien.'

READING: At last, here is a book peering behind the veil of Congressional politics which force NASA to do the bidding of regional interests that cripple the nation's capabilities in both exploring outer space and exploiting its enormous economic potential. Presenting the opinions of astronauts, prominent rocket scientists and space policy analysts while also revealing unpublicized studies conducted by NASA, industry and universities, The Plundering of NASA: An Expose combines into one book many of the facts the major media have either ignored or not discovered. Expert sources explain modern and economically practical solutions that can allow NASA to exceed its former Apollo glory within its current budget. In short, the book relates how honest misconceptions, greed, and an outdated faction within NASA itself cause our nation to get less for its space agency tax dollars than it could and should.

READING: Annotation "Design Methodologies for Space Transportation Systems is a sequel to the author's earlier text, "Space Transportation: A Systems Approach to Analysis and Design. Both texts represent the most comprehensive exposition of the existing knowledge and practice in the design and project management of space transportation systems, and they reflect a wealth of experience by the author with the design and management of space systems. The text discusses new conceptual changes in the design philosophy away from multistage expendable vehicles to winged, reusable launch vehicles and presents an overview of the systems engineering and vehicle design process as well as systems trades and analysis. Individual chapters are devoted to specific disciplines such as aerodynamics, aerothermal analysis, structures, materials, propulsion, flight mechanics and trajectories, avionics and computers, and control systems. The final chapters deal with human factors, payload, launch and mission operations, safety, and mission assurance. The two texts by the author provide a valuable source of information for the space transportation community of designers, operators, and managers. A companion CD-ROM succinctly packages some oversized figures and tables, resources for systems engineering and launch ranges, and a compendium of software programs.

READING: De intrigerende zoektocht naar leven buiten ons zonnestelsel Zijn wij de generatie die de geschiedenis zal ingaan als de ontdekkers van buitenaards leven? De kans is reëel: uit recent onderzoek blijkt dat alleen al onze Melkweg 40 miljard exoplaneten telt die potentieel bewoonbaar zijn. In dit internationaal geprezen boek gaat wetenschapsjournalist Lee Billings samen met topwetenschappers als Frank Drake, Jim Kasting en Sara Seager op zoek naar concrete sporen van leven buiten ons zonnestelsel. Die zoektocht voert hem niet alleen naar de verste uithoeken van het heelal en de Melkweg, maar ook naar onverwachte plaatsen op onze eigen planeet. De geschiedenis van de aarde leert ons namelijk veel over wat leven mogelijk maakt. Vijf miljard jaar eenzaamheid toont tegelijk hoe de jacht op exoplaneten is uitgegroeid tot een bloedstollende race tussen wetenschappers wereldwijd, allen rotsvast overtuigd dat er leven is 'out there'. Want de klok tikt. De aarde heeft nog een half miljard van haar vijf miljard jaar te gaan vooraleer complex leven definitief onmogelijk wordt. Tenzij wij er zelf veel vroeger een einde aan zouden maken door onze levensstijl. Dit meeslepende boek toont of we aan onszelf kunnen ontsnappen.
