Space environment is a branch of astronautics, aerospace engineering and space physics that seeks to understand and address conditions existing in space that affect the design and operation of spacecraft. A related subject, space weather, deals with dynamic processes in the solar-terrestrial system that can give rise to effects on spacecraft, but that can also affect the atmosphere, . Conveying a wealth of insight into the nature of the space environment and how spacecraft interact with it, he covers design modifications aimed at eliminating or reducing such environmental effects as solar absorptance increases caused by self-contamination, materials erosion by atomic oxygen, electrical discharges due to spacecraft charging /5(5).

[Susan K O'Brien; Gary L Workman; Guy A Smith; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. The Space Environment and Its Effects on Space Systems, Second Edition is significantly revised and expanded, featuring new chapters on risk management, formation and evolution of the universe, and time and reference Systems.

It also includes expanded chapters on the space radiation environment. This book is intended to serve two audiences: firstly, those who wish to obtain an understanding of /5(3). The debris impact may cause the degradation of solar cells because of the cumulative effect (Lei, Cumulative effects of micrometeoroid impacts on spacecraft, ), and even damage several strings of solar cells depending on the diameter of the debris.

Hypervelocity impact event may excite plasma and by spreading the plasma can initiate discharges that are able to induce arcing on Author: Dongsheng Jiang, Pei Zhang, Yi Zhang. Through offering insight into the nature of the space environment and how spacecraft interact with it, this book presents a singular account of the environmental effects that can damage or cause poor performance of orbiting spacecraft.

The discussion covers design modifications aimed at eliminating effects as solar absorptance increases caused by self-contamination, materials erosion by atomic. The effects of the natural space environment on spacecraft design, development, and operations are the topic of a series of NASA Reference Publications currently being developed by the Electromagnetics and Environments Branch, Systems Analysis and Integration Laboratory.

All of these may have significant effects on material properties either alone or in synergism. The hard vacuum of space with its pressures below 10−4Pa (10−6Torr) causes some materials to outgas, which in turn affects any spacecraft component with a line-of-sight to the emitting material.

This fourth edition of the bestselling Spacecraft Systems Engineering title provides the reader with comprehensive coverage of the design of spacecraft and the implementation of space missions, across a wide spectrum of space applications and space science.

The text has been thoroughly revised and updated, with each chapter authored by a recognized expert in the field. Microgravity, or weightlessness, alters many observable phenomena. within the physical and life sciences.

Systems and processes affected by microgravity include surface wetting and interfacial tension, multiphase flow and heat transfer, multiphase system dynamics, solidification, and fire phenomena and combustion.

This chapter will examine the effect of the space environment upon spacecraft systems. In particular, we will examine the various interactions that spacecraft systems may be susceptible to, and will discuss the mitigation techniques that spacecraft designers must take to ensure successful on orbit by: 2.

We have undertaken a study to determine the impact of the space environment on space systems. Known impacts include mission outages, mission degradation and mission failure, launch delays. That basically covers the whole field (unless you want to include weightlessness). This book packs a large amount of information, including micrometeoroid fluxes, all sorts of radiation fluxes, nominal and storm plasma conditions, oxygen reaction efficiency, orbital decay times, and solar cycle by:   Degradation of Spacecraft Materials in the Space Environment - Volume 35 Issue 1 - Sharon K.R.

While the primary emphasis of the book is the Earth's environment and its effects on spacecraft, it also addresses the extraterrestrial environment and the effects of radiation on. The breakup of the Space Shuttle Columbia as it reentered Earth’s atmosphere on February 1,reminded the public — and NASA — of the grave risks posed to spacecraft by everything from insulating foam to space debris.

Here, Alan Tribble presents a singular, up-to-date account of a wide range of less conspicuous but no less consequential environmental effects that can damage or cause.

The Handbook of Environmental Degradation of Materials explains how to measure, analyse, and control environmental degradation for a wide range of industrial materials including metals, polymers, ceramics, concrete, wood and textiles exposed to environmental factors such as weather, seawater, and fire.

Divided into sections which deal with analysis, types of degradation, protection and surface engineering respectively, the reader is introduced to the wide variety of environmental effects. Encompassing the fundamentals of spacecraft engineering, the book begins with front-end system-level issues, such as environment, mission analysis and system engineering, and progresses to a detailed examination of subsystem elements which represent the core of spacecraft design - mechanical, electrical, propulsion, thermal, control etc.
