Rocket Manual : An insight into the development, evolution and tec Hardback
by David Baker
Rocket motors have made possible everything we do in space - from the tiniest motor the size of a pea to giant motors bigger than a house, they have been used to propel into space launchers as tall as St Paul's Cathedral weighing as much as a Navy warship - the Saturn V.
The Rocket Manual tells the story of rocket motors, how they were first developed, how they work, what they are used for and how they are operated.
This fascinating Manual explains and describes not only the engines themselves but also the rockets that carry payloads into space, to the Moon and to the planets.
