Deep Space Probes to the Outer Solar System and Beyond Second Edition by Gregory L. Matlof.
This book could be viewed as a large mul disciplinary compendium of past research, current investigations and future research in stronautics.
Deep-Space Probes Second Edition draws on the latest research to explain why we should explore beyond the edge of the Solar System and how we can build highly sophisticated robot spacecraft to make the journey. Many technical problems remain to be solved, among them propulsion systems to permit far higher velocities…..
Beyond the range of effective radio control, robot vehicles for exploring deep space will need to be intelligent, ‘thinking’ craft – able to make vital decisions entirely on their own.
this book is an open guide in three main respects: it contains progressive exercises as the chapter and section topics evolve, it provides the reader with many updated references, and it clearly indicates projected research areas that could become current research in the near future.
For a student, the included exercises could be transformed into small worksheets or notebooks featuring many modern symbolic or algebraic computation systems that run on desktop or laptop computers.

This second edition of Deep-Space Probes draws on the latest research to explain why we should explore beyond the edge of the Solar System. Fully updated and revised, the book describes the highly sophisticated robot spacecraft needed to carry out the first explorations in deep space, and the technical problems that are still to be solved. it also includes an entirely new chapter on holographic message plaques for future interstellar probes – a NASA-funded project.
