This book takes the reader on a journey through the history of extremely ambitious, large and complex space missions that never happened. What were the dreams and expectations of the visionaries behind these plans, and why were they not successful in bringing their projects to reality thus far? As spaceflight development progressed, new technologies and ideas led to pushing the boundaries of engineering and technology though still grounded in real scientific possibilities. Examples are space colonies, nuclear-propelled interplanetary spacecraft, space telescopes consisting of multiple satellites and canon launch systems. Each project described in this book says something about the dreams and expectations of their time, and their demise was often linked to an important change in the cultural, political and social state of the world. For each mission or spacecraft concept, the following will be covered: • Description of the design. • Overview of the history of the concept and the people involved. • Why it was never developed and flown • What if the mission was actually carried out - consequences, further developments, etc. For the last twelve years, Michel van Pelt has worked as a cost engineer, systems engineer and as Concurrent Design Facility team leader for the technical center of the European Space Agency (ESA) in The Netherlands. He has been involved in many ESA space projects during many different phases, which has given him a unique insight in the definition, conceptual design, development, launch and operation of spacecraft. Specifically, his work in ESAs Concurrent Design Facility for conceptual design studies has given him a deep understanding of the various scientific, technical, financial and political issues and constraints that drive the development of spacecraft, as well as a broad knowledge of innovative ideas for future launchers and space missions. He has written many articles on space and is editor and writer for two Dutch spaceflight magazines. In addition, he regularly gives presentations on space-related topics for student associations, etc. His Copernicus - Praxis book Space Tourism, Adventures in Earth Orbit and Beyond was published in 2005, followed by Space Invaders, How Robotic Spacecraft Explore the Solar System in 2006, Space Tethers and Space Elevators in 2009, and Rocketing into the Future in 2012, all published through Springer/Praxis.

Excerpt from Uranography and Practical Astronomy: Designed for Private Students The practical astronomy contains rules for calculating the moon´s phases, eclipses, Easter, &c., &c. -too tedious to mention. The practical astronomy must be studied as a text book; therefore, the reader need not expect to open it, and then apply the rules to the various examples but must resort to the more elaborate method of study and inspection. In hope that this compilation may be found useful, we submit it to the public for self-recommendation. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Auszug: Die Geschichte der Astronomie umfasst zeitlich die gesamte Kulturgeschichte der Menschheit. Die Astronomie wandelte sich von der bloßen Kunde der Beobachtung des Sternenhimmels und seiner Zyklen über die klassisch-geometrische Astronomie, deren älteste Teilgebiete die Positionsastronomie und Ephemeridenrechnung sind, bis hin zur modernen Astrophysik. Die Astronomie bestimmt das Selbstbild des Menschen und seine Auffassung von seiner Stellung im Universum mit, heutzutage vor allem durch die Diskussionen über die Entstehung des Universums und die Suche nach bewohnbaren Planeten und Leben außerhalb des Sonnensystems der Erde. Astronomische Deutung einer 17.000 Jahre alten Jagdszene in der Höhle von LascauxFür vorgeschichtliche Himmelsbeobachtungen liegen nur vereinzelt Indizien vor, darunter Wandmalereien in der Höhle von Lascaux (ca. 17.000 bis 15.000 v. Chr.), in denen vielleicht die Plejaden und der Tierkreis dargestellt sind, sowie ein beim Abri Blanchard in Frankreich gefundener Flügelknochen eines Adlers mit Punktmarkierungen, deren Zahl und Anordnung möglicherweise mit den Mondphasen zusammenhängen. Allerdings beweist der Mangel an relevantem archäologischem Fundmaterial nicht, dass für die vorgeschichtliche Menschheit die Himmelsbeobachtung generell keine Rolle spielte. Jedenfalls ist bei heutigen Jäger- und Sammler-Kulturen, etwa den Aborigines, derartiges durchaus bezeugt. In der Jungsteinzeit ändert sich die Quellenlage merklich. Die Verwendung eines Kalenders, der bestimmte Kenntnisse über die Vorgänge am Himmel voraussetzte, war für landwirtschaftliche Kulturen lebenswichtig. Ein Vorauswissen über bedeutsame alljährliche Ereignisse ermöglichte Planung. Damit waren religiöse Deutungen der Himmelsphänomene und ihrer möglichen Ursachen verbunden. Es ist denkbar, dass der Übergang zum Ackerbau zur Ausbildung verschiedener Astralkulte und zu den Anfängen einer Astronomie und auch zur Entstehung der Astrologie (sowohl der westlichen als auch der asiatischen) bei

Excerpt from The Sidereal Messenger, 1885, Vol. 4: A Monthly Review of Astronomy The neglect with which that branch of astronomy - the nebulae - has been treated, has been for many years, somewhat painfully apparent to me, though there are many reasons therefor. In the first place but very few persons possess suf ficient interest in this subject to arouse any popular eu thusiasm, and as telescopes of the largest size are necesse ry to see them at all, except a few of the brightest, astron omers have, to a very great extent, devoted their time ´and instruments to the more fascinating and, perhaps, more useful subjects of double-stars, the Moon, the Sun, etc. During the many years devoted to comet-seeking, I have invariably marked on one of my star-charts the position of every nebula revealed by my comet-seeker, (a 4%-in(3h re fractor). This habit has saved me many hours of anxious watching to detect motion in a nebulous object found, which, at the time of finding, I could not determine whether it were a nebula or a comet. Recourse to my chart with its recorded nebulae in the position observed, has settled the matter at once. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
