Space Activity: Impact on Science and Technology contains the proceedings of the 24th International Astronautical Congress held in the USSR on October 7-13, 1973. Contributors focus on the contribution of space research to the development of science and technology, including biology and medicine. This text begins with a discussion on the role played by Soviet automatic vehicles in the progress of space automatics and control theory. The discussion then turns to the problems of space technology and their implications for science and technology, industrial applications of aerospace technology, and development of liquid-propellant rocket engineering technology in the USSR. The chapters that follow explore the contribution of space medicine to public health; the role of astronautics in the development of methods of celestial mechanics; the flight performance of the unmanned Skylab space station; and remote sensing of the environment and earth's resources studies from Soviet manned spacecraft. The book concludes with an appraisal of international standards for model rocket engines. This book will be of interest to students of astronomy as well as researchers and practitioners working in the field of space exploration and research.Proceedings of the XXIVth International Astronautical Congress, Baku, USSR, 7a€“ 13 October, 1973 L.G.
