Space has always been intriguing people's imagination. However, space flight has only been feasible over the last 60 years. The collective effort of distinguished international researchers, within the field of space flight, has been incorporated into this book suitable to the broader audience. The book has been edited by Prof. George Dekoulis, Aerospace Engineering Institute (AEI), Cyprus, an expert on the state-of-the-art implementations of reconfigurable space physics systems. The book consists of six sections, namely, "Introduction," "Spacecraft Simulators," "Spacecraft Navigation," "Spacecraft Propulsion," "Suborbital Flight," and "Deep-Space Flight." We hope that this book will be beneficial for professionals, researchers, and academicians and inspires the younger generations into pursuing relevant academic studies and professional careers within the space industry.

The book presents an imaginative view of what space could be in the next several decades if new technologies are developed and bold new innovative applications are undertaken. It discusses the following concepts: a future environment for space activities very different from the predominant conditions of the past and present; a dozen critical technologies with the potential for making orders-of-magnitude reductions in spacecraft and launch vehicle weight and cost and orders-of-magnitude increases in their performance; and a large number of space applications that use these technologies to address established as well as unconventional missions and functions that have revolutionary potential.
