Mining The SkyFeatured Selections:
Mining The Sky: Untold Riches from the Asteroids, Comets and Planets

By John S. Lewis
Dr. Lewis (Co-Director, NASA/University of Arizona Space Engineering Research Center) makes a convincing case for balancing research and economic necessity by proposing strategies to extract oxygen from lunar rocks, harness the natural hydrogen and helium of the gas giant planets to power fusion reactors, and create space vehicles from hollowed out asteroids. His argument rests on the proposition that space exploration is not just an expensive hobby but also a source of tremendous business opportunity.

Hatfield Lunar AtlasThe Hatfield Photographic Lunar Atlas

By Commander Henry Hatfield
Edited by Jeremy Cook

Long regarded as the finest photographic lunar atlas available, The Hatfield Lunar Atlas is a model of accuracy and clarity. This new version updates some of the maps, names, and technical data, but uses Commander Henry Hatfield's original — and unexcelled — photographic plates, taken with a purpose-built 30 cm reflector. The Atlas is divided into sixteen sections, each of which is made up of five or more photographic plates together with a map. While perhaps not as widely preferred in professional astronomy as Antonin Rukl's "Atlas Of The Moon" (currently out of print) or The Full Moon Atlas (available online or CD-ROM), the Hatfield Atlas is an extremely valuable resource.

The Moon: Resources, Future Development and ColonizationThe Moon: Resources, Future
Development and Colonization

By David G. Schrunk, Burton L. Sharpe,
Bonnie L. Cooper and Madhu Thangavelu
(Wiley-Praxis Series in Space Science and Technology)
Taking the reader from plans already at an advanced stage for the next ten years to well into the next century, this work discusses the rationale for future activities, and shows how this future development could take place. The book shows the potential for lunar bases and colonies, and shows that it is an ideal site for scientific laboratories dedicated to geosciences, astronomy and life sciences, and most importantly its role as a proving ground and launch pad for future Solar System exploration.

Mapping And Naming The MoonMapping and Naming the Moon:
A History of Lunar Cartography
and Nomenclature

By Ewen A. Whitaker
With its wonderful historical maps and rare early photographs, this book is a treat for everyone interested in the Moon. Anyone who observes the Moon, perhaps through binoculars or a small telescope, will appreciate this unique account of lunar mapping and nomenclature. How did the craters get their names? Who made the first maps of the Moon, and how were they improved over time? Four centuries of progress are beautifully summarized. The excellent appendices and bibliography provide a launch pad for those who wish to learn more.

Apollo 11 Mission ReportApollo 11: The NASA Mission Reports
(NASA Mission Reports, Volume 1 & 2)

Edited by Robert Godwin
With Foreword by Buzz Aldrin

Volume 1 of the Apollo 11 Mission Reports is not just another picture book about planting the flag. This really tells everybody from novices and students right up to aerospace engineers how it was done. You could almost fly your own mission with the plethora of detail included here. The accompanying CD-ROM contains one hour of official NASA video, as well as every 70mm photo taken by the crew — 1395 in all — cataloged in order. It also contains something completely new: three of the panoramas taken by Neil Armstrong of Tranquility Base have been stitched together into a seamless video that you can pan and zoom around to experience what it really looked like up there. Volume 2 contains the recently declassified official crew debriefing in Houston after the mission, transcribed in the crew's own words, including the particularly intriguing UFO report. The CD-ROM in Volume 2 includes the full 2.5-hour uncut and unedited moonwalk, the fourth panorama taken by Buzz Aldrin, as well as an exclusive fifty-minute video interview with Buzz himself.
