Abstract:

The properties of gravity and the possible ways of overcoming it, the principles of work and installation of spaceships and rocket engines operating on solid and liquid fuel, and the energetics of rocket flight are discussed. State ments are made concerning G-forces, weightlessness, hypodynamics, meteor and radiation danger and means of protection from them. The reader will recognize how space flights are ensured in the medico-biological respect, how are astronauts trained, what is space food, and how to observe the rules of hygiene in flight. Also expounded is a series of questions insufficiently illuminated in the popular press. How to calculate trajectory and control of a spaceship. How does a ship return from space to Earth or how will it land on another planet. What is the reliability of the spaceship, carrier rocket and system of control. How is space radio- and telecommunication carried out. How is safety of flight ensured. What is the role of automatic machines in scientific research and in supporting of normal conditions of vital activity of astronauts. What is the composition and air pressure and temperature rate in the cabin of the ship. How is the space pressure suit constructed. What is the contemporary state of the development of astronautics in the Soviet Union and the United States.
