Space PDF Collection. I Suppose here is the best place for this thread, maybe it can be stickied too. Yesterday we had a talk about the disapperance of bobandreport's website on geocities, which had for some been THE reference list of NTRS documents, and the idea came up to start a Space PDF thread here. I tried to run Bob's page through archive. You only need to watch out with the links though, it will say that they are excluded from the archive by robots. As the links are to the NTRS, simply paste the link of the particular document into the address bar.

Conceived and designed as a reusable spacecraft to provide cheap access to low Earth orbit, and to supersede expendable launch vehicles, serving as the National Space Transportation System, it now coexists with a new range of commercial rockets. David Harland s definitive work on the Space Shuttle explains the scientific contribution the Space Shuttle has made to the international space programme, detailing missions to Mir, Hubble and more recently its role in the assembly of the International Space Station.
This substantial revision to existing chapters and extension of The Space Shuttle, following the loss of Columbia, will include a comprehensive account of the run-up to resumption of operations and conclude with a chapter beyond the Shuttle, looking at possible future concepts for a partly or totally reusable space vehicle which are being considered to replace the Shuttle.

It's probably next to impossible to write so detailed an account of the Space Shuttle's history without drowning it in acronyms and minutiae, and the book doesn't even try.
It's strongest at the beginning and the end, when it's using relatively broad strokes to describe the Shuttle's development and a mids vision of its future and legacy, and in the sections that deal with the losses of Challenger and Columbia. Calling the bulk of the book in between these sections "dense" would be an under It's probably next to impossible to write so detailed an account of the Space Shuttle's history without drowning it in acronyms and minutiae, and the book doesn't even try.
Calling the bulk of the book in between these sections "dense" would be an understatement, and without the page list of acronyms at the end much of it would be almost incomprehensible. On the other hand, the step-by-step walkthrough of every mission prior to the post-Columbia return to flight gives a terrific set of insights into the challenges of performing even simple tasks in space and the obstacles to routinizing even simple activities beyond the Earth. Where it doesn't provide an easy or entertaining read, it makes a valuable reference tool for someone wishing to understand the ambition, the challenges, the accomplishments and the limitations of history's most versatile spaceship.
