Item description for Large Space Structures Formed by Centrifugal Forces (Earth Space Institute Book Series) by V A Koshelev & V M Melnikov...
The availability of energy resources is expected to become an increasing concern in the next fifty years, as it is the key to industrial development, transportation and commerce. An alternative yet potential solution for energy problems lies in the utilization of space. For example, sunlight reflectors of several hectares in area could contribute to future power engineering or for illuminating designated regions of the planet with sunlight. This book describes a feasible means of constructing such a reflector, as well as simple, reliable and low-cost structures for television and radio transmissions, debris removal from space and the development of solar sails for interplanetary missions. The aim of this book is thus to provide a comprehensive overview of the research in the technology of such space based structures expanded by centrifugal forces. The most promising concepts and design solutions for different applications are addressed. Particular emphasis is placed on deployment dynamics of s
