Astronautics for Peace and Human Progress contains the proceedings of the 29th Congress of the International Astronautical Federation held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on October 1-8, 1978. The papers explore the role of astronautics in the pursuit of peace and human progress and cover topics ranging from space exploration and communication satellites to space technology and Earth exploration from space. This book is comprised of 32 chapters and opens with a discussion on space programs of countries such as the United States, Japan, Germany, USSR, and Italy. The following chapters focus on systems for space exploration such as SPACELAB and those associated with the Voyager program and the International Solar Polar Out-of-Ecliptic Mission. The evolution of Space Power Systems is also described, along with Earth exploration from space. Spaceborne sensors, automatic data analysis, and Landsat imagery are considered. The final two sections deal with communication satellites and space technology. This monograph will appeal to space scientists and astronautical engineers.
