From the Back Cover:

A lively and engaging exploration of orbital mechanics and its role in aerospace design and development Inspired by its author's internationally renowned short course by the same name, Orbital Mechanics is a practical introduction to a field of study of crucial importance to today's aerospace initiatives. Drawing upon nearly four decades of experience as an aerospace engineer and student of orbital mechanics, Tom Logsdon provides aerospace professionals and students with many important and useful insights into the ways in which orbiting bodies interact and the behavior of satellites and rockets traveling through space. From the investigations of Renaissance astronomers to contemporary trajectory control systems, Logsdon covers all the bases, including:
* Background theories, from Kepler's empirical laws to modern explanations of orbital perturbations on artificial satellites.
* Rocket propulsion systems and optimization techniques for maximizing payload and minimizing fuel consumption
* Frozen orbits, ballistic capture techniques, libration point orbits, and practical constellation design
Orbital Mechanics is a valuable resource for aerospace professionals and serves as an excellent upper-level text for aerospace engineering students.
