Entering Space: colonizarea spatiului cosmic .

Editura: Teora

Am cartea asta de cativa ani si, desi nu este usoara ( e scrisa de un inginer ), am recitit-o cu aceeasi placere ca si prima data. Cateva cuvinte despre scriitor, Robert Zubrin este inginer aeronautic de renume, fondator al societatii Marte, care se ocupa de studierea posibilitatilor de explorare si colonizare ale Planetei Rosii si al companiei Pioneer Astronautics, ce ofera studii si tehnologii pentru explorarea spatiului cosmic. Cartea de fata este considerata cea mai importanta lucrare a sa despre spatiu si posibilitatile reale ale explorarii umane, crearea unei civilizatii cosmice fiind pasul urmator pe care autorul considera ca trebuie sa il faca omul in dezvoltarea sa. Zubrin isi incepe pledoaria prin a arata ca toate civilizatiile care au stagnat de-a lungul istoriei, precum Egiptul antic sau China imperiala,si-au gasit la un moment dat sfarsitul. Societatile care au progresat au fost cele care au fost impinse spre progres :  Razboiul, cu toata forta sa distructiva, a constituit o forta motrice a progresului datorita cursei inarmarilor care a dus la acelerarea dezvoltarii tehologice. In plus, necesitatea militara a impulsionat reformele sociale de ...

How to Live on Mars: A Trusty Guidebook to Surviving and Thriving on the Red Planet

Editura: THREE RIVERS PR

Anul aparitiei: 2008

Thinking about moving to mars? Well, why not? Mars, after all, is the planet that holds the greatest promise for human colonization. But why speculate about the possibilities when you can get the real scientific scoop from someone who's been happily living and working there for years? Straight from the not-so-distant future, this intrepid pioneer's tips for physical, financial, and social survival on the Red Planet cover: - How to get to Mars (Cycling spacecraft offer cheap rides, but the smell is not for everyone.) - Choosing a spacesuit (The old-fashioned but reliable pneumatic Neil Armstrong style versus the sleek new--but anatomically unforgiving--elastic "skinsuit.") - Selecting a habitat (Just like on Earth: location, location, location.) - Finding a job that pays well and doesn't kill you (This is not a metaphor on Mars.) - How to meet the opposite sex (Master more than forty Mars-centric pickup lines.) With more than twenty original illustrations by Michael Carroll, Robert Murray, and other renowned space artists, How to Live on Mars seamlessly blends humor and real science, and is a practical and exhilarating guide to life on our first extraterrestrial home.

Islands in the Sky: Bold New Ideas for Colonizing Space

Editura: JOHN WILEY & SONS INC

Anul aparitiei: 1996

"Let the meek inherit the earth--the rest of us are going to the stars Here's how it's going to be done." -- Robert Zubrin "These articles are not 'just science fiction.' They are things we can do--and with any luck at all, and vision and determination, we will." -- Stanley Schmidt Take off on a thrilling journey of space exploration and speculation--to the realm where science fiction becomes science fact--as leading writers, researchers, and astronautic engineers describe a not-too-distant future of interstellar travel and colonization. From cable cars that ride "skyhooks" into space to rockets that can refuel out of Martian air, from "terraforming" planets (a process that makes them habitable for human life) to faster-than-light propulsion systems, Islands in the Sky offers an astonishing collection of challenging--and plausible--ideas and proposals from the pages of Analog magazine. Brilliant and provocative, here is fun-filled reading for everyone interested in science, technology, and the future.

The Holy Land

Editura: POLARIS BOOKS

Anul aparitiei: 2003

What if Americans were the terrorists, and a more civilized superpower found it necessary to put us down? What if contemporary Christian ministers preached salvation through murder of non-believing foreigners, and the US government recruited child suicide-assassins for this purpose? If you were an American living in such a crazed society, what would you do? If you were a civilized outsider, how would you deal with these insane savages? The Holy Land poses such predicaments, and more. In an attempt to save the Minervans from oppression in the central galaxy, the liberal Western Galactic Empire has relocated the sect to their ancient homeland of Kennewick, Washington. The fundamentalist fanatics ruling the USA find the presence of pagans in the holy city intolerable, however, and they launch an interstellar campaign of mass destruction in protest. Now, cast in a universe gone mad, the primitive Earthling POW Sergeant Hamilton and his case officer, the sophisticated Minervan priestess (3rd class) Aurora, must find the way out, or neither side will survive. In this madcap role-reversed science-fiction satire on the Mideast crisis and the War on Terrorism, the gloves come off. Written ...

Benedict Arnold: A Drama of the American Revolution in Five Acts

Editura: POLARIS BOOKS

Anul aparitiei: 2005

Benedict Arnold: A Drama of the American Revolution in Five Acts Benedict Arnold was the greatest combat soldier of the American Revolution. Yet, in September 1780, in collusion with the beautiful Tory agent Peggy Shippen and British spymaster John Andre, he attempted to betray George Washington, the Marquis de Lafayette, Alexander Hamilton, and the critical fortress of West Point into Royal hands. This devastating plot came within a hair's breath of succeeding, and the fragile infant American cause was only saved by the chance intervention of three of the humblest and most improbable heroes ever to grace the annals of history. Exciting and dramatic, the tale of the Arnold conspiracy recounts the most perilous moment in the birth of the new nation, and plumbs the depths and the heights of human nature. Now, in the historically accurate play, Benedict Arnold, noted scientist and author Robert Zubrin brings this incredible and still meaningful story back to life.

The Case for Mars: The Plan to Settle the Red Planet and Why We Must

Editura: FREE PR

Anul aparitiei: 2011

Since the beginning of human history, Mars has been an alluring dream--the stuff of legends, gods, and mystery. The planet most like ours, it has still been thought impossible to reach, let alone explore and inhabit. But all that changed when leading space exploration authority Robert Zubrin crafted a daring new blueprint, Mars Direct. When it was first published in 1996, The Case for Mars became an instant classic, lauded widely for its game-changing perspective by those who would see the American space program rise to the challenge of Mars; Carl Sagan called Zubrin the man who, "nearly alone, changed our thinking on this issue." Now, fifteen years later, Zubrin brings readers up to date in this revised and updated anniversary edition filled with spectacular illustrations, extraordinary photographs, and one-of-a-kind anecdotes. Unlike the dead world of the Moon, the Martian landscape is filled with possibility, but humans must be able to survive there. In the grand tradition of successful explorers, Zubrin calls for a travel-light and live-off-the-land approach to Martian settlement. He explains how scientists can use present-day technology to send humans to Mars; produce fuel and ...

Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism

Editura: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR

Anul aparitiei: 2013

There was a time when humanity looked in the mirror and saw something precious, worth protecting and fighting for--indeed, worth liberating. But now we are beset on all sides by propaganda promoting a radically different viewpoint. According to this idea, human beings are a cancer upon the Earth, a species whose aspirations and appetites are endangering the natural order. This is the core of antihumanism. Merchants of Despair traces the pedigree of this ideology and exposes its deadly consequences in startling and horrifying detail. The book names the chief prophets and promoters of antihumanism over the last two centuries, from Thomas Malthus through Paul Ehrlich and Al Gore. It exposes the worst crimes perpetrated by the antihumanist movement, including eugenics campaigns in the United States and genocidal anti-development and population-control programs around the world. Combining riveting tales from history with powerful policy arguments, Merchants of Despair provides scientific refutations to antihumanism's major pseudo-scientific claims, including its modern tirades against nuclear power, pesticides, population growth, biotech foods, resource depletion, industrial ...

Energy Victory: Winning the War on Terror by Breaking Free of Oil

Editura: ROUTLEDGE CHAPMAN HALL

Anul aparitiei: 2009

In this compelling argument for a new direction in US energy policy, world-renowned engineer and best-selling author Robert Zubrin lays out a bold plan for breaking the economic stranglehold that the OPEC oil cartel has on our country and the world. Zubrin presents persuasive evidence that our decades-long relationship with OPEC has resulted in the looting of our economy, the corruption of our political system, and now the funding and protection of terrorist regimes and movements that are committed to our destruction. Zubrin's plan is straightforward and practical. He argues that if Congress passed a law requiring that all new cars sold in the USA be flex-fueled--that is, able to run on any combination of gasoline or alcohol fuels--this one action would destroy the monopoly that the oil cartel has maintained on the globe's transportation fuel supply, opening it up to competition from alcohol fuels produced by farmers worldwide. According to Zubrin's estimates, within three years of enactment, such a regulation would put 50 million cars on the road in the USA capable of running on high-alcohol fuels, and at least an equal number overseas. He further advocates tariff policies ...

Editura: LIGHTNING SOURCE INC

Anul aparitiei: 2010

Fin dall'inizio della storia umana Marte e stato un sogno allettante - materiale per leggende, divinita e misteri. Il pianeta piu simile al nostro lo si crede tuttora impossibile da raggiungere, tanto meno esplorarlo e abitarlo. Ora con l'avvento di un nuovo progetto rivoluzionario, tutto cio e cambiato. L'eminente autorita per l'esplorazione spaziale Robert Zubrin ha forgiato un nuovo audace progetto, il Mars Direct, presentato qui con illustrazioni, fotografie ed aneddoti coinvolgenti. Il libro spiega passo dopo passo come possiamo usare la tecnologia attuale per inviare uomini su Marte entro dieci anni; produrre realmente carburante ed ossigeno sulla superficie del pianeta con risorse naturali; come possiamo costruire basi ed insediamenti e come possiamo un giorno fare il "terraforming" di Marte - un processo che puo alterare l'atmosfera dei pianeti e spianare la strada alla vita sostenibile.
