Book Synopsis
Learn the basic principles of rocket flight mechanics, propulsion, structure, launch procedures, ground support, and rocket electronics data acquisition and control. Only high-school math is required, yet the rocket propulsion equations found on T-shirts are derived using algebra and some pre-calculus. In 216 pages, a case study of an amateur liquid-propellant (LOX-kerosene) rocket having an Atlas missile vernier engine with 1000 pounds of thrust is included, with photos of the components. The first half of the book covers some of its design including the tanks and electrically-actuated ball-valve controllers. Rocket history is surveyed in the introduction, including one Apollo astronaut who was a rocket amateur. Index included.
