This is the
first in a series of short versions of the Space In Miniature
series called “Tech Reports”. These will be on
topics too short for full length printed books.
volume is an expanded version of a short article I
published in SIM #1
- A Scale Spacecraft Primer. That
booklet is getting somewhat dated so this new
publication is also an attempt to offer expanded and
updated versions of older material.
When I was in
college I was a co-op engineer at NASA's Marshall
Space Flight Center when Skylab was launched.
That, plus my time at McDonnell Douglas got me access
to a lot of Skylab data. In 1975 I scratch-built
a 1/96th scale model. This book compiles the
best of that experience and material.
Reports will only be available via electronic download
and payment via Paypal. It allows the use of
color illustrations, and simplifies my life by
eliminating the need to fill orders, store boxes of
books, run to the post office, etc. The reports can
also be updated as needed. When I receive your
order, I will send you an e-mail with a link to the
pdf file. It is about 42MB file.
