This book is an introductory course in aerodynamics. It provides more than a layman's treatment of the subject but not the detail as taught in many individual courses on the college level. The result is a highly qualitative, illustrated set of notes.

This book presents the physical bases of practical high-speed aerodynamics, and the influence of air compressibility on the aerodynamic characteristics of wings and aircraft. Primary attention is turned to passenger jets.
by Steven J. Dick - NASA
Thought-provoking ideas, views, and speculative reasoning. The book itself is divided into three parts: National and Global Dimensions of the Space Age; Remembrance and Cultural Representation of the Space Age; and Reflections of the Space Age.
Space systems engineering is a worthy field of study within the larger context of all sciences and engineering. This book is an introduction to both the historical design challenges of transport and space hardware design, and new engineering methods.
