A 10th Planet?
 A NASA scientist insists a 10th planet may be orbiting the sun even though two space probes have not been able to find any trace of it in the dim outer reaches of the solar system.

Advanced Space Propulsion - DAEDALUS, ORION, and Others by Louis E. Della Torre, Jr.
 ORION was the name given to a proposal put forward during the 1960s for a very large vehicle using pulsed nuclear propulsion. In lay person's terms "pulsed nuclear propulsion" involves exploding nuclear warheads immediately astern of the vehicle.

Astronomy Primer by William A. Manly
 Astronomy is a peculiar science because it can perform no experiments. It can only make observations and construct hypotheses. If the astronomer is lucky, nature will perform the experiment for him/her (there are quite a few women in astronomy). Mostly, astronomical hypotheses are constructed in such a way that new observations will test the hypothesis. Sometimes the observations have to be refined, or new methods of observing developed or invented.

Evaporating Black Holes by Robert G. Hays
 Some time ago Stephen Hawking proposed that "primordial" black holes may have been formed at the time of the 'Big Bang.' He also proposed that any of these primordial black holes of less than approximately 1,000,000,000 metric tons original mass may have 'evaporated.' The mechanism that he suggested to cause this evaporation involves the spontaneous electron-positron-pair generation from high-energy radiation.
Experiments in Zero Gravity
 Gravity often modifies the behavior of solids and liquids in subtle ways. One technique for eliminating its influence is to study materials in free fall. Donald R. Pettit of the Los Alamos National Laboratory and astronaut Joseph P. Allen of the Johnson Space Center in Houston have recently done experiments in free fall in the cargo space of an airplane belonging to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. They were assisted by Robert K. Williams of the Johnson Space Center.

Interstellar Travel
 On April 1, 1987 the Greater New York Chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), the Space Frontier Society and the space Studies Institute (SSI) sponsored a joint meeting aboard the Intrepid Sea, Air Space Museum moored at a midtown Manhattan Pier in the Hudson River. The topic was "From the Solar System to Interstellar Flight."

Our Solar System at a Glance by JPL
 From our small world we have gazed upon the cosmic ocean for untold thousands of years. Ancient astronomers observed points of light that appeared to move among the stars. They called these objects planets, meaning wanderers, and named them after Roman deities -- Jupiter, king of the gods; Mars, the god of war; Mercury, messenger of the gods; Venus, the god of love and beauty, and Saturn, father of Jupiter and god of agriculture. The stargazers also observed comets with sparkling tails, and meteors or shooting stars apparently falling from the sky.

Single Stage to Orbit Ships by John McDonnell
 Single Stage To Orbit (SSTO) is an idea that's been around for a long time, but so far has been technically unfeasible for a variety of reasons. This article discusses what SSTO is, what it requires technically, and ways we may achieve those technical goals in the future. The source is a presentation I gave in a rocket propulsion class in 1987. While my notes put together a (hopefully) coherent look at SSTO, it is by no means original technical research. Credit for that goes to all the practicing engineers who figured out this stuff so I could learn it in the classroom.

Transatmospheric Vehicle
 On April 6, 1987 the Greater New York Section of AIAA in conjunction with the New York Society of Security Analysts and the Space Commerce Roundtable Foundation sponsored a meeting at the Wings Club in New York City. The subject was the air- breathing hypersonic aircraft/space launch vehicle now under development. This projected experimental aircraft is officially designated the X-30. However, it has, up to now at least, been more commonly known as the Trans-Atmospheric Vehicle (TAV) or the National Aerospace Plane (NASP).

Uses for the Shuttle's External Fuel Tank
 E.T., it seems, is not only a movie and the name of it's principal character but also refers to the Space Shuttle's external tank and the space program's most hotly debated topic at the moment seems to be what to do with the latter. Everyone appears to agree that dropping the tank in the Indian Ocean as is presently done is not a good idea, especially since it reduces the Shuttle's payload. After that, however, the consenus breaks down. The 1983 Princeton Conference on Space Manufacturing produced it's share of discussion on this point.
