The very first book on space systems failures written from an engineering perspective. Focuses on the causes of the failures and discusses how the engineering knowledge base has been enhanced by the lessons learned. Discusses non-fatal anomalies which do not affect the ultimate success of a mission, but which are failures nevertheless. Describes engineering aspects of the spacecraft, making this a valuable complementary reference work to conventional engineering texts.... so as to guard against the transmission interfering with the operation of the second stage of the launch vehicle.59 The initial ... fuel.64, 65 This satellite was the second 7000 series bus built by General Electrica#39;s Astro Space division ( which Martin ... left in a transfer orbit with a perigee of some 7, 500 kilometres, which subjected it to the radiation of the van Allen belts. ... development of the Japanese Lunar A mission, originally scheduled for launch in 1999 on an M-5-III launch vehicle, anbsp;...
