Editorial Reviews


Ed Love -- "I just finished your book on Space Flight and loved it! I've been doing my own private ground school in aviation recently, as I don't have the funds to get into the sky yet, and the topic moved onto space flight. I really appreciate how clear you made it!"
Chris Vondenstein -- "I'm 45, and from South Louisiana. I just wanted to drop you a quick line and say thank you for writing your books. Recently, the "rocket bug" bit me, which inspired me to learn not only higher level math, but programming (I currently use Python). After finishing your book on spaceflight, I sought more knowledge, and bought your "Digital Computer Based Simulations", and "Simulating Aircraft Flight". I also bought additional books on astrodynamics, including "Fundamentals of Astrodynamics", as you mentioned in your "Spaceflight" book. I was ecstatic to see my first satellite successfully orbit on my little Raspberry Pi computer, and now have ambitions to slowly add to it to incorporate more features, such as simulating the launch itself, staging, and hopefully orbit insertion. I know, it'll be LOTS of work. But I feel like a kid again learning this stuff, and love the challenges involved. I look forward to any future response / correspondence, and once again, thank you for your work. I always had a love of math, but now my appetite is ravenous for it, and your book had a big part in it."

From the Author

In the past, books on this subject required that you endure long derivations for equations used for designing space missions. Now that digital computers are readily available and fast, many of those equations are no longer needed. You can now design your own space missions using a laptop-computer-based simulator and educated trial-and-error. You can also use these simulators to observe the physics involved; they're great learning aids. In this book I skip all those complex equations and use my own simulator, that you may use free of charge, to demonstrate the physics.
This book was previously published under the name "Space Flight for Beginners" and was my best seller.  It's even better now.
