Kurzbeschreibung

4. September 2014 Owners' Workshop Manual
The Soyuz spacecraft played a major role in Russia's plans for a manned landing on the Moon and several test models were flown at the height of the 'space race'. Originally designed for circumlunar flight, Soyuz has been the mainstay of Russia's space programme for 45 years, and unmanned cargo ships are still operational today. Development of Soyuz began in 1963 and the first human flight followed in April 1967. Unfortunately, after only one day, the spacecraft crashed to Earth killing its occupant and triggering numerous modifications to the design. In October 1968 - the same month that the first astronauts flew in NASA's Apollo - Soyuz completed its first successful flight. It was subsequently used for Russia's first docking operations in space to gain propaganda points while NASA was edging closer to landing on the Moon. Several more Soyuz flights followed in support of Russia's emerging space station, Salyut. But in 1971 the first-generation Soyuz was abandoned after its three-man crew was killed after visiting Salyut 1 - there had been insufficient room in the shuttle for them to wear bulky spacesuits. This problem was addressed and the second-generation Soyuz could carry two fully space-suited cosmonauts. Third, fourth and fifth generation Soyuz were developed and launched between 1973 and 2011, as well as the Soyuz TMA-M in 2010, each an improvement on the last. In all, almost 120 Soyuz spacecraft have flown in the past 45 years. Soyuz has also been adapted into an unmanned cargo-freighter/fuel-tanker carrying solids and liquids to Salyut space stations, Mir and the International Space Station. Around 125 have flown since the first launch in 1978. They have already seen almost 250 missions and will remain operational for many years. The story of the Soyuz spacecraft also tells the story of Russia's manned space stations. This fits in neatly with the Haynes International Space Station Manual, as none of the early Soviet Salyut 1 to 7 stations are covered, although there is a mention of Mir. The first flights to Salyut 1: The first flights to Russia's first space station, Salyut 1, in 1971. On returning to Earth the three-man crew die. Complete redesign of major parts of Soyuz. A series of space station missions from Salyut 2 in 1973 to Salyut 7 in 1982. The Progress cargo/tanker appears in 1978 on dual manned/unmanned operations. Mir space station: Mir space station is launched in 1986. The fourth generation Soyuz TM emerges with further improvements and a prolific interleaving of manned and unmanned flights. From 2002 the Soyuz TMA emerges as the primary vehicle for supporting the International Space Station. From 2010 the TMA-M brings further refinements and modifications. What is it like to fly Soyuz? An illustrated minute-by-minute account of launch and of re-entry and landing.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable look at Russia's flagship manned spacecraft 31. August 2014
Von Daryl Carpenter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
After David Baker's super-detailed Haynes manuals on NASA's Mars Rovers and the Apollo 13 missions, I had high expectations for this book. I've been a little letdown by Haynes' offerings this last year, but this volume on Russia's flagship manned spacecraft is a step in the right direction. The first quarter provides a concise history of the early Soviet manned space program, including the Vostok and Voskhod missions, and the development of the Soyuz spacecraft. The remainder is a technical history of Soyuz, focusing on the continued design and development of the different Soyuz variants, its role in the abortive Russian moon landing program, its potential military applications, and its current role as an orbital taxi cab.

The highlight of this book are the four technical features, including a 30-page technical description of the modern Soyuz TMA-M, a look at rendezvous and docking techniques, a brief history of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, and a summary of the Progress cargo freighter. These parts are really the meat of the book - the bits that make it a "workshop manual" and not just a decent history. Dozens of detailed technical drawings from the original Soyuz manuals are included, along with close-up views of spacecraft components and detailed descriptions of how the different systems work.

Overall, the Soyuz "workshop manual" makes a very good, although not superb, inclusion into the rather small library of English-language books on the Soviet & Russian manned space program. Visually, the book is superb, with plenty of line drawings, diagrams, historical photographs, specially created CGI illustrations, and color views of Soyuz hardware. David Baker's writing has improved over the years, and he strikes a good balance between historical background and technical details here. My main gripe is that it ends rather abruptly - the focus here mainly being on the early years of the Soyuz program, the last 28 years getting a 9-page wrap-up at the end. This might be a reflection of the craft's overall reliability, or of editorial constraints on the part of Haynes.

Recommended, with a couple of minor reservations, for serious manned spaceflight buffs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Way better than I expected 5. Oktober 2014

This is amazingly educational. Way better than I expected. I have other books on Soyuz and this seems to be easier to understand. Great service.
