Why do nation states choose to develop national space programs? How can they justify national efforts to acquire capabilities by arguing for membership of the space club? This book provides a unique perspective of the past, current and future of space exploration and technological development in world politics. A country that sees itself as a power deserving of a seat at the table of world governance is expected to race for space. Based on a rich and detailed analysis of a range of space programs of states which are not usually at the focus of world politics and its research, the author shows that joining the space club is a legitimate and rational decision. The book provides a different way of looking at international relations, through a relatively under-studied area of policy - the space club.
This book focuses on a unique concept constituting the most significant relation between architecture and literature: space. It builds on Norberg-Schulz''s theory of existential space which follows a phenomenological approach towards revealing the essence of space narrated in "The Black Book" by Orhan Pamuk. In the novel, the author gives new meaning to "spaces" that actually exist in the city of Istanbul. Most of the spaces narrated in the novel are based on places from his childhood. Pamuk''s use of his childhood environment as the story setting enables him to provide the reader with a vivid picture of a place. Space is the dominant structuring frame in "The Black Book" and Pamuk''s focus is not on studying portraits, but on the character''s movement through, and conflict with space, especially Istanbul.
An exciting sticker book full of awesome images of the planets and galaxies. Written in clear and easy-to-follow language and packed with colorful illustrations, photographs, and peelable stickers, this fun activity book is an introduction to the ever-popular topic of space and the amazing worlds that make up our solar system.

Space-Time Coded OFDM Systems for Wireless Communication
One of the promising solutions to the challenges of future communication systems is to design efficient coding systems over time, space and frequency domain for MIMO-OFDM systems. In this book, comprehensive review of coding over time, space and frequency domain for MIMO-OFDM system is presented. New and efficient space-time codes over MIMO-OFDM systems are proposed with their concatenated version employing iterative decoding. The review of various space-time coded OFDM systems and the proposed space-time codes for MIMO-OFDM presented in this book should be of great interest to students at undergraduate and postgraduate class in the field of telecommunication Engineering. This book will also be useful for professional Engineers in the field of communication engineering in designing new wireless communication systems.
The book is devoted to the development of Einstein's theory of gravitation, based on the relativity of space-time and projectively invariant equations of gravitation. It eliminates contradiction of the theory with the modern field theory, because both descriptions of gravity - as a curvature of the Riemannian space-time and as a field in the Minkowski space - are not mutually exclusive. On this basis, some of the fundamental problems of the theory and relativistic astrophysics are revised. It is shown, in particular, that the spherically symmetric field does not have a singularity, the energy of the gravitational field of a point mass is finite, and the accelerated expansion of the Universe is a consequence of gravity properties. The book is intended for physicists and astrophysicists. However, it is also apprehensible for senior students.
This book presents an overview of the latest discoveries and current scientific understanding of the coupling of electromagnetic waves and charged particles during magnetic storms, and explains the observed dynamics of these particle populations. The book furthermore includes investigations relevant to understanding and forecasting this space environment and the adverse impacts of space weather.
We live in a truly golden age of astronomy and space exploration that may allow us to unravel some of the biggest mysteries of all: How did the Universe begin? Are there other Earth-like planets out there? Are we alone? The Space Book is a gateway into these kinds of questions-and more-for anyone interested in the worlds beyond our planet. Expanding the series that began with the highly successful volume The Math Book (9781402757969), astronomer and planetary scientist Jim Bell presents 250 of the most groundbreaking astronomical events, from the formation of galaxies to the recent discovery of water ice on Mars. Beautiful photographs or illustrations accompany each entry. Open the book to any page to discover some new wonder or mystery about the Universe around us.
