About the Author

Alan C. Tribble is a rocket scientist who has spent over ten years designing dozens of spacecraft for various missions. Formerly with Boeing's Space Systems Division, he now does research and development with Rockwell Collins. His other books include the "Princeton Guide to Advanced Physics" and "A Tribble's Guide to Space" (both Princeton).


"Anyone involved in the design, production, or use of instruments in space would benefit from access to a copy of this book. It collects together ... subject areas that are more typically dealt with by single-topic specialists, and covers these aspects of the space environment in a readable, no-nonsense style."--Observatory "Successfully bridges the divide between the space physicists' and the spacecraft design engineers' views of the space environment. It is a much needed and timely book."--M. J. Rycroft, Journal of Atmosphere and Terrestrial Physics "This splendid book ...[is] both an up-to-date reference and a textbook... Very readable for both technical and lay audiences."--Choice
