  • Xavier Shay

    Exactly what it says on the tin. Covers how to calculate orbits, how to put things into orbits, how to transfer orbits, how to get stuff to the moon or other planets. Very math heavy as you'd expect, ...

    Quite easy to follow...

    I am not into such science but I enjoy showing that “i know Rocket Science”...

  • Exo

    What can I say? There is about 400 years worth of science in this book, a book I bought for pocket change. I do, although, recommend taking differential/integral/vector/multivariable calculus before h...

  • Isscandar

    Lo sto leggendo e non l'ho ancora finito... è molto bello perché spiega gli argomenti in maniera chiara, senza dare per scontato nulla, è richiesta (per lo meno fino a dove sono arrivato) solamente...

  • Kevin

    The "BMW" book is pretty much the best basic astrodynamics and orbital mechanics book ever. It works just as well if not better than many current edition textbooks as a reference, and it's way cheaper...

  • Tom

    A great book on astrodynamics. I read nd referred to many times in the course of studies. An subsequently re-read. An easy to follow presentation by experienced instructors....

  • Grady Owens

    The fundamental text on orbital mechanics. If you need your missile to go ballistic or just want to throw something at the moon hard enough to hit it, this is a must-read....

  • Alex

    This is probably THE book for learning the basics of astrodynamics....
