n MNASSA : Monthly Notes of the Astronomical Society of South Africa - Understanding Space - An introduction to astronautics, Jerry Jon Sellers (Contributions from William J. Astore, Robert B. Giffen, Wiley J. Larson) : book review

Volume 67, Issue 11_12
  • ISSN : 0024-8266



Books on astronautics and space flight often fall into one of two categories; they are either aimed at advanced undergraduate or post-graduate level, or they are very basic and non-mathematical descriptions of the subject that feel somewhat hollow to the more mathematically inclined reader. This book fills the vacuum between these two extremes and provides one of the most enjoyable and accessible introductions to astronautics that I have yet come across.
