This work introduces the important emerging space powers of the world. Brian Harvey describes the origins of the Japanese space program, from rocket designs based on WW II German U-boats to tiny solid fuel 'pencil' rockets, which led to the launch of the first Japanese satellite in 1970. The next two chapters relate how Japan expanded its space program, developing small satellites into astronomical observatories and sending missions to the Moon, Mars, comet Halley, and asteroids. Chapter 4 describes how India's Vikram Sarabhai developed a sounding rocket program in the 1960s. The following chapter describes the expansion of the Indian space program. Chapter 6 relates how the Indian space program is looking ahead to the success of the moon probe Chandrayan, due to launch in 2008, and its first manned launching in 2014. Chapters 7, 8, and 9 demonstrate how, in Iran, communications and remote sensing drive space technology. Chapter 10 outlines Brazil's road to space, begun in the mid-1960's with the launch of the Sonda sounding rockets. The following two chapters describe Brazil's satellites and space launch systems and plans for the future. Chapters 13 and 14 study Israel's space industry. The next chapters look at the burgeoning space programs of North and South Korea. The book ends by contrasting and comparing all the space programs and speculating how they may evolve in the future. An appendix lists all launches and launch attempts to date of the emerging space powers.

This paper explores the history of space stations by tracing the development of 'mission objectives' and American 'national objectives'. Mission objectives are the functions and roles that space stations perform in orbit, while national objectives are the reasons why building a space station is in the United States' best interest--the 'selling points' most often heard in Congress during NASA's budget debates. The fundamental list of mission objectives was developed between 1902 and 1952 by the visionaries Tsiolkovsky, Oberth, von Pirquet, Ley, Clark, and von Braun and includes spaceport and orbital laboratory, among others. Examples of American national objectives include attaining world leadership through space technology and stimulating interest in science education among American children. Learning from the many space station efforts since 1958 that were canceled due to lack of national interest, NASA taught itself how to bestow politically acceptable national objectives to space stations. Space Station Freedom is the latest effort to find the elusive mix of national and mission objectives that fit well with America's political and economic circumstances, and its objectives have evolved significantly since 1984.

Sweden in space is an account of the early years of Swedish space research, up until the formation of the present national space organisation. It is a story of scientific successes, optimism and pioneer spirit, but also of the resistance that was encountered by a new and expensive activity as it sought to find a place in the established research and technical community.

Der Künstler Jürgen Stäudtner thematisiert Menschen und deren Umwelt: Natur, Berge, Straßen oder Plätze. Er untersucht anhand bekannter Orte, wie der Kölner Domplatte, der documenta 12 in Kassel bis hin zur Kaaba und dem Felsendom wie eine multikulturelle Gesellschaft Plätze und Straßen prägt. Landschaften, vor allem Berge, sind der Hauptschauplatz seiner in den letzten Jahren entstandenen Leinwandbilder. Die Avantgarde der Bergsteiger und Kletterer bringt uns Berge näher, von denen wir noch nie hörten. Der Mount Everest wird in seinen Bildern nicht zuletzt durch die Ereignisse von 1996, 2014 und 2015 zum Kronzeugen einer sich ändernden Welt. Verschaffen Sie sich einen Überblick über Jürgen Stäudtners Schaffen: Dieser Katalog enthält viele farbige Bilder und einige Überraschungen. *** English *** The artist Jurgen Staudtner works on people and their surrounding space: nature, mountains, streets or places. On the bases of well known locations such as Cologne cathedral, documenta 12 in Kassel, Kaaba and the Dome of the Rock he shows how a multicultural society coins society. Landscapes, mostly mountains, are the main showplace of the canvas art work he produced in recent years. The vanguards of mountaineering and climbing show us mountains never seen before. Mt Everest, last but not least through the catastrophes "into thin air" in 1996, 2014 and 2015, is a principal witness of a changing world. Get an overview over Jurgen Staudtners work: This catalogue provides many colored pictures and some surprises.
