Garrett , Albert C. The definitive guide to the modern body of spacecraft charging knowledge—from first principles for the beginner to intermediate and advanced concepts. The only book to blend the theoretical and practical aspects of spacecraft charging, Guide to Mitigating Spacecraft Charging Effects defines the environment that not only creates the aurora, but which also can have significant effects on spacecraft, such as disruption of science measurements and solar arrays from electrostatic discharge ESD.
It describes in detail the physics of the interaction phenomenon as well as how to construct spacecraft to enhance their survivability in the harsh environment of space.
Combining the authors' extensive experience in spacecraft charging—and in their provision of design support to NASA, JPL, the commercial satellite market, and numerous other projects—this incredible book offers both a robust physics background and practical advice for neophytes in the field and experienced plasma physicists and spacecraft engineers.
In addition to containing numerous equations, graphs, tables, references, and illustrations, Guide to Mitigating Spacecraft Charging Effects covers:. How Apollo Flew to the Moon.

Spacecraft Systems Engineering. The pointing should remain stable over an observation due to the intra-pixel gain variations and the pointing should be repeatable between observations due to the interpixel gain variations. Dhamodaran , R. Charles L. Precision thermal control is achieved by isolating the payload from the spacecraft bus, passively cooling the detector, and using trim heaters to perform small temperature corrections over the course of an observation.

He studied for his PhD at the University of Glasgow from —, prior to gaining a research assistant post until December Malcolm has diverse research interests, with activities spanning space and aerospace technology, including mission and system design, astrodynamics, and swarm and disaggregated system engineering.
He also has interests in technology foresight, horizon scanning and roadmapping, and is a fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society. His mainstream scientific contributions consist of about papers and several books related to statistical physics, thermodynamics, the physics of semiconductors, the various aspects of terrestrial and space solar energy applications and other energy-related issues. Also, he has theorized on present-day Mars meteorology and Mars terraforming and on several macro-engineering projects.
