141-Page PDF Circa 2003 by @NASA of Conceptual ‘In-Space Vehicles’ for Planetary Exploration
I stumbled upon this doc in the NASA NTRS archives. It’s dated November 2003 and proposes ‘five concept missions,’ along with some of the vehicles and engines – and a lot of graphs and math required – to achieve a positive outcome of ‘Human Exploration of the Outer Planets.’ Awesome!
Since its founding, NASA has been dedicated to the advancement of aeronautics and space science. The NASA Scientifi c and Technical Information (STI) Program Offi ce plays a key part in helping NASA maintain this important role.
The NASA STI Program Offi ce is operated by Langley Research Center, the lead center for NASA’s scientifi c and technical information. The NASA STI Program Offi ce provides access to the NASA STI Database, the largest collection of aeronautical and space science STI in the world.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
