Otto Lilienthal: Der Vogelflug als Grundlage der Fliegekunst by Bernd Lukasch

By Bernd Lukasch

Originaltext und ausführlicher historischer Kommentar von Bernd Lukasch.​

Die Erstausgabe des Buches von Otto Lilienthal aus dem Jahr 1889 gehört heute zu den bibliophilen Kostbarkeiten ersten levels, conflict sie doch eines der wenigen Bücher, die große technische Entwicklungen voraussahen und nach sich zogen. Der Grund für seine heutige Popularität liegt vor allem darin, dass Lilienthal mit seinem Buch nicht nur die bis heute gültigen physikalischen Grundlagen des Phänomens „Fliegen“ legte, sondern wenige Jahre später selbst zum erfolgreichen Anwender seiner Theorie und damit zum ersten „fliegenden Menschen“ wurde. Das Buch steht damit am Beginn der Technikgeschichte des Flugzeugs, die wie wohl keine andere technische Disziplin eine Jahrhunderte alte Vorgeschichte hat, die Kulturgeschichte des Ikaridentraums. Die kommentierte Neuauflage beleuchtet mit der Bedeutung und Entstehungsgeschichte des Buches auch dessen Platz im Lebenswerk des Autors.

Project Icarus Systems Engineering by MIT Student Project in Systems Engineering

By MIT Student Project in Systems Engineering

This technological myth, the made of the MIT scholars procedure venture and the foundation for the 1979 movie "Meteor," provides a plan for heading off a hypothetical collision among Earth and the Apollo asteroid, Icarus, which sweeps through each nineteen years inside a number of million miles (a near-miss in astronomical terms). Collision with a 4 billion-ton rock might create a disaster equivalent to the harmful strength of part one trillion hundreds TNT.To hinder tidal waves from washing away the coasts of North the US and Europe and surprise waves from fracturing the earth's substructure, the undertaking Icarus plan demands six 100-megaton hydrogen bombs to be prepared for liftoff in series from the Kennedy house middle by means of six Saturn V rockets in an try to push the asteroid astray or to break it into risk free particles. truly, cash is not any item; the entire monetary assets of the rustic are assumed to be had to the crack venture Icarus workforce. yet time and accuracy are essential.The description of the frantic undertaking time table from go-ahead to affect comprises choice and amendment of the release car and spacecraft; "design" of the nuclear warhead and prediction of its interplay with the asteroid in house; tips and regulate of the spacecraft on its serious intercept trajectory; improvement of an intercept tracking satellite tv for pc to assemble medical information from the asteroid and the explosion; the tight administration and inflexible PERT agenda; and the industrial impression of the project.How with regards to Earth will Icarus's eccentric orbit hold it subsequent time? What are the possibilities of a few different, as but undiscovered, asteroid -- or worse, a random meteor -- making its manner immediately for Earth? The MIT team's plan could but be placed to the try.
