Fundamentals of Aircraft and Airship Design: Volume I--Aircraft Design - Leland M. Nicolai, Grant E. Carichner
The aircraft is only a transport mechanism for the payload, and all design decisions must consider payload first. Simply stated, the aircraft is a dust cover. "Fundamentals of Aircraft and Airship Design, Volume 1: Aircraft Design" emphasizes that the science and art of the aircraft design process is a compromise and that there is no right answer; however, there is always a best answer based on existing requirements and available technologies.

The Science Of Astrobiology: A Personal View On Learning To Read The Book Of Life (Cellular Origin, Life In Extreme Habitats And Astrobiology) - Julián Chela-Flores
Since the publication of The New Science of Astrobiology in the year 2001 the first edition of the present book two significant events have taken place raising the subject from the beginning of the present century to its present maturity. Firstly, in 2001 the Galileo Mission still had two years to complete its task, which turned out to be an outstanding survey of the Jovian system, especially of its intriguing satellite Europa. Secondly, the Cassini Huygens Mission was still on its way to
