"Introduction to Space Dynamics" by William Tyrrell Thomson. Overall, this is a classic and essential book for those serious about astrodynamics and understanding space systems. The text is a great introduction to a broad set of categories in space dynamics including both rocket and satellite systems/5(33).   Popular Mechanics contributor John Wenz has written about everything from the effects of space on the human body to innovations in carbon nanotube technology to .

This concise yet comprehensive book on space flight dynamics addresses all phases of a space mission: getting to space (launch trajectories), satellite motion in space (orbital motion, orbit transfers, attitude dynamics), and returning from space (entry flight mechanics).Cited by: 2. He is a licensed professional engineer and is the author of two textbooks (Orbital Mechanics 3e, Elsevier , and Fundamentals of Aircraft Structural Analysis, McGraw Hill ). His research specialties include continuum mechanics, structures, dynamics, and orbital s: r =0. () A particle moving in such a field will thus have a constant angular momentum vector L. Thevalueofthisvectorcanbefoundfrominitialvaluesofpositionvectorandmomentum: L = r(0)× mv(0) and one important conclusion that we immediately can draw from the equation.
