A Theoretical and Experimental Study of a Superconducting Magnetically-Supported Spinning Body Nasa Contractor Report, Nasa Cr-108
Washington D. C.: NASA, 1964. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. Graphs; This book is in Fine condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some very beginning bumping. The text pages are clean and bright. "Roger Bourke spent the majority of his professional life at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory engaged in various aspects of planetary exploration. He participated in and later led mission planning activities for Mariner Mars 1971, Mariner Venus-Mercury 1973, early phases of Viking, Voyager and the series of Mars missions beginning in the 1990's. In the 1980's, he worked as the mission design and operations manager of the then-Mars Rover Sample Return pre-project and subsequently represented the robotic exploration element in various NASA Mars initiatives. Prior to his retirement from JPL in 2000, he was responsible for coordinating the international connections in the worldwide efforts to explore the Red Planet. NASA awarded him an Exceptional Service Medal and he has been elected to the International Academy of Astronautics. He is now a part-time consultant and full-time skier.". Fine .

 GARDNER, MARTIN, Relativity for the Million
GARDNER, MARTIN
Relativity for the Million
New York: Macmillan, 1963. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. Illustrated by Anthony Ravielli. B&W Illustrations; This book is in Fine condition and has a Near Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket has some light bumping, rubbing and wear to the spine ends and corners. There is one semi-closed tear to the bottom front flap joint. "The theory of relativity usually encompasses two interrelated theories by Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity. Special relativity applies to elementary particles and their interactions, describing all their physical phenomena except gravity. General relativity explains the law of gravitation and its relation to other forces of nature. It applies to the cosmological and astrophysical realm, including astronomy. " (from Wikipedia).

Heat Transfer Thermodynamics and Education Boelter Anniversary Volume
New York: Mcgraw Hill Book Company, 1964. Trade Edition. Hardcover. Graphs; This book is in Very Good+ to Near Fine- condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. A previous owner has ink stamped his name (very small stamp) on the bottom front flap of the dust jacket and top edge of the front pastedown page. "In the field of heat transfer, in which in the twenties he gained renown through the statement of the well-known Dittus-Boelter equation, Dean Boelter's laboratory was extended to the groves of the citrus experiment station in Riverside. There the problem of orchard heating in the early thirties grew to such proportions that in 1944 he was given the additional appointment of Agricultural Engineer in the University of California Agricultural Experiemtn Station at Davis.".

DE PUYMORIN, R. D' AUBRY
Les Actions a Distance Les Forces Electrostaticques Et la Gravitation
Paris, France: Gauthier-Villars Imprimeur-Editeur, 1948. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Paperback. B&W Illustrations; This is a trade sized paperback with light cardstock covers and a glued spine. The book is in Very Good- condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The covers have noticeable fading / toning. The spine has chips to both ends and some light nicks and chipping to the cover edges. The text pages are clean, but noticeably toned. "The gravitational force is a force that attracts any object with mass. Every object, including you, is pulling on every other object in the entire universe! This is called Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation. Admittedly, you don't have a very large mass and so, you're not pulling on those other objects much. And objects that are really far apart from each other don't pull on each other noticeably either. But the force is there and we can calculate it. While dealing with gravitational forces, we come across masses. Masses are always positive so the product of masses always gives positive value. The nature of gravitational force is attractive or in other words inwards. Hence, negative sign is given for the gravitational force due to its inward direction Electrostatics is a branch of physics that deals with the phenomena and properties of stationary or slow-moving electric charges.".

Menlo Park, CA and Alexandria, VA: Stanford Research Institute / Defense Documentation Center, Cameron Station, 1965. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Paperback. Two parts - Part 1: Oversized paperback report (Final Report) with cardstock covers and a vinyl spine. Part 2: staplebound reproduced pages which consist of two pages per page on both recto and verso. This last part is an unclassified abstract from the Cameron Station Documentation Center dated 1963. Both parts are in Very Good to Near Very Good + condition and neither were issued with dust jackets. The Final Report has some ground-in dirt and spotting to the covers along with the penciled name J. Roth. The text pages are clean and bright. The abstract has edge wear, curling to the corners and some nicking and wear to the plain paper covers. It is staplebound from the top and there is an inked code on the top corner. The text pages are clean and bright. "To fill a continued military demand for con trolled explosive wave shaping, this study was undertaken to establish basic conditions for explosive systems capable of being initiated uniformly over their entire surface, and to demonstrate the functioning of the proposed system for simple geometries. This investigation is a continuation of that started under AFSWC TR-61-59. " Only one copy listed in Worldcat: Defense Tech Information Center at Fort Bellvoir.. Very Good with No dust jacket as issued .
