About the Author:

Jim Longuski joined Caltech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 1979 after earning a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan.

As a maneuver analyst and mission designer at JPL, Longuski helped plan NASA's Galileo Mission to Jupiter.

In 1988, Longuski began teaching astronautics at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. He has published over one hundred conference and journal articles on spacecraft dynamics and control, reentry theory, mission design, and space trajectory optimization.

Recently, Longuski collaborated with Professor Ephraim Fischbach (at Purdue) and Professor Daniel J. Scheeres (at the University of Michigan) to propose an experiment to test Einstein's theory of gravity at an unprecedented accuracy. This new test of General Relativity would precisely measure the deflection of a spacecraft during a close encounter with the sun.

Review:

An important book. . . I wish I had this book before starting my career!" -- Dr. Enrico Lorenzini, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

It took me years to learn much of what's in this book... The book is wonderfully written... -- Dr. William J. O’Neil, Galileo Project Manager, 1990-1998, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology

This easy-to-read book explains the side of being successful that the professors do not teach... -- Dr. Gerald R. Hintz, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
