Concept for a Lunar Array for Very Low Frequency Radio Astronomy
We discuss the design considerations relevant to a very low frequency array, to be deployed on the lunar near side during an early expedition. Such an array would operate in the frequency...

Altering the Solar System—Landing the Moon, Mars or Venus on the Earth—Changing the Orbit, the Tilt and the Size of the Planet Earth
It is proposed to radically change the hitherto prevailing mindset of the people (and especially of the scientists) by stressing that the present setup of the 5 billion year old Orbit,...

When to Connect Your New Supply
The use of risk analysis is important to a water utility. The economic losses to the local economy as a result of water shortages can be astronomical. On the other hand, the high rates...

Oceanographic Earth Observations by Space Shuttle Astronauts
Thirty years of manned space flights have produced over 100,000 photographs of the Earth. Many of these photographs describe various coastal processes and oceanographic phenomena at a...

An Astronaut Positioning System for Space Station Assembly and Maintenance Support
Large space structures require special systems to support assembly, operations, and maintenance. These systems must be designed to support many tasks throughout the life of the space facility....

Implications of the New Radiation Exposure Limits on Space Station Freedom Crews
Spaceflight unavoidably increases the exposure of astronauts to natural ionizing radiation. Any increase in radiation exposure increases the risk of contracting cancer or inducing genetic...

Coastal Flood Insurance Study Procedures for Puget Sound
Procedures for a coastal flood insurance study are presented. The 10-, 50-, 100-, and 500-year recurrence interval runup flood evaluations are estimated from an analysis of historical...

21st Century Astronomical Observatories on the Moon
The advantages and disadvantages of building astronomical observatories on the Moon are described. In many ways, the Moon is a superior environment for astronomy to that of the Earth's...

Lunar Automatic Photoelectric Telescopes (LAPTs)
I propose a lunar network of modest (approximately 1 m), robust telescopes designed for and dedicated to precise, time-serial monitoring of variable sources. Unhampered by atmospheric...

Advanced Technology for a Lunar Astronomical Observatory
Significant new technologies are required for three proposed telescopes to be operated on the Moon. These technologies are in the areas of contamination/interference control, test and...

A Space Station Millimeter Facility
The design and use of a large millimeter telescope for construction on the planned Space Station (a Space Station Millimeter Facility, SSMF) are described. Such a facility would have manifold...

Gas Recycling: A Bioregenerative Life Support System
The prospect of a lunar or earth-orbiting space station raises the question of life support for long periods of time with little or no support from earth. The cost of lifting supplies...
