Editors: John H. Denis and Paul D. Aldridge
Book Description:
Space exploration is an immense and expanding field. The quest for knowledge about space has resulted in hundreds of very important technologies which have been incorporated into society's fabric including the biomedical field. This new book examines a multitude of issues related to space exploration including philosophy, biology, dark energy, space tourism, space station measurements, supernova, and Saturn's rings.
