Beschreibung:

This book looks behind the scenes at the Plasma Crystal laboratory on the International Space Station (ISS) to see how science and research is carried out on the first physical science laboratory in space. As well as the background story of the ISS and the many scientific discoveries that were made, it focuses on the ups and downs on the route to success, and the people involved: the scientists, engineers, agency representatives, and, especially, the experimenters in space — the cosmonauts.Complex plasma research is the other focal point of the book, and this field of science is at the forefront of modern physics. The unexpected applications of the research ranging from plasma medicine and hygiene to agriculture are amongst the fastest growing and most promising areas of research and development.This book is written in such a way that it can be read by anyone curious about space, the ISS, research in space, cosmonauts, scientific endeavours and new discoveries. A DVD containing personal footage of the cosmonauts' work — their training, the experiment and at leisure on the space station — is included to enhance and supplement the text.Contents:The BeginningBackground — The Years BeforeThe Dawn of the Space AgeMoscow — The First MeetingSpace — The Early EffortsSpace — Russia and Germany Join HandsExpanding and Stabilising the ResearchTwists and Turns of EventsMeeting and Training the CosmonautsBaikonur — The Russian SpaceportLaunch of PK-3Korolev — The Forbidden CityPK-3Plus — How It BeganSome Science ResultsSome More Science ResultsPlasma Crystal — The Most Successful Space Station ExperimentRecollections from the CosmonautsThe FutureSome Probing QuestionsApplicationsFinal RemarksAppendix 1: Pictures from Space and EarthAppendix 2: The PKE-Nefedov TeamAppendix 3: List of Mir and ISS Plasma Crystal MissionsReadership: General public; this book can be read by anyone with an interest in space, the ISS, research in space, cosmonauts, scientific endeavors and new discoveries.
