Spacecraft attitude control is the process of controlling the orientation of a spacecraft (vehicle or satellite) with respect to an inertial frame of reference or another entity such as the celestial sphere, certain fields, and nearby objects, etc. It has become increasingly important: with the increasing number of human space launch activities, the number of failed spacecraft has increased dramatically in recent years. Attitude Takeover Control of Failed Spacecraft is both necessary and urgently required. This book provides an overview of the topic and the role of space robots in handling various types of failed spacecraft. The book divides the means of attitude takeover control into three types, including space manipulator capture, tethered space robot capture and cellular space robot capture.
