The Next Steps in Exploring Deep Space

EB016
The Next Steps in Exploring Deep Space, Published 2007, 146 pages. Hardcover. The purpose of this report is to articulate a vision for the scientific exploration of space in the first half of the 21 st Century. The compelling scientific and cultural imperatives that guide this vision provide the context for a logical, systematic, and evolutionary architecture for human expansion into the solar system. This architecture represents a new approach leading ultimately to human exploration of Mars and a permanent human presence in the solar system.

Space Debris Mitigation: Implementing Zero Debris Creation Zones

EB017
Space Debris Mitigation: Implementing Zero Debris Creation Zones, Published 2005, 61 pages. For several decades, orbital debris has been identified as a serious concern! This orbital debris potentially threatens future space missions, mainly in Low Earth Orbits and in Geostationary Earth Orbit, due to the risk of high energy collisions with valuable spacecraft. A complete presentation of the topic has been published with the year 2000 revision of the IAA Position Paper on Orbital Debris 1.

Space Traffic Management

EB018
Space Traffic Management, Published 2005, 104 pages. At first glance, the management of space traffic does not appear to be a pressing problem. On closer examination, this judgement has to be challenged. A high level and ever growing number of launches from more and more launch sites and spaceports, the participation of non-governmental entities, the positioning of satellite constellations, an increase in space debris and the advent of reusable launch vehicles support this view. Conceptualizing space traffic management will turn out to become a relevant task during the next two decades.

Cost Effective Earth Observation Missions

EB019
Cost Effective Earth Observation Missions, Published 2005, 160 pages. Hardcover. Cost-effective missions can be achieved by using different approaches and methods. One of the possible approaches is taking full advantage of the ongoing technology developments leading to further miniaturization of engineering components, development of micro-technologies for sensors and instruments which allow designing dedicated, well-focused Earth observation missions.

Space Debris Environment Remediation

EB024
Space Debris Environment Remediation, Published in 2013, 85 pages. The International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) has been investigating the status and the stability of the space debris environment in several studies by first looking into space traffic management possibilities, and then investigating means of mitigating the creation of space debris.

Key Technologies to Enable Near-Term Interstellar Scientific Precursor Missions

EB026
Key Technologies to Enable Near-Term Interstellar Scientific Precursor Missions, Published in 2013, 95 pages. This Cosmic Study considers the near-term implementation of robotic Interstellar Precursor probes, which should be considered as precursors to true interstellar missions. Destinations for such missions include the heliopause at >100 AU and the Sun's inner gravity focus at 550 AU. Current propulsion systems capable of reaching such destinations on trajectories requiring decades of travel time include the solar sail and nuclear-electric rocket.

Space Elevators: an Assessment of the Technological Feasibility and the Way Forward

EB040
Space Elevators: an Assessment of the Technological Feasibility and the Way Forward, Published in 2013, 349 pages. This book addresses the simple and complex issues that have been identified through the development of space elevator concepts over the last decade. The report begins with a summary of those ideas in Edwards' and Westling's book The Space Elevator (2003). Out of these beginnings has risen a worldwide cadre focused upon their areas of expertise as applied to space elevator development and operational infrastructure.

Guidelines for Standardization of Bed Rest Studies in the Spaceflight Context

EB034
Guidelines for Standardization of Bed Rest Studies in the Spaceflight Context, Published 2014, 70 pages. Bed rest studies, in which healthy volunteers are confined to bed in a 6° head-down tilt position, are a well-established model for some of the adaptations experienced by astronauts during spaceflight. They are therefore a very valuable tool both for investigating possible mechanisms and for testing measures to counter these adaptations. Further, the results obtained in these studies have obvious relevance and applications in terrestrial clinical contexts, which make them even more useful.

Private Human Access to Space Volume 1: Suborbital Flights

EB035
Private Human Access to Space Volume 1: Suborbital Flights, Published 2014, 98 pages. In this cosmic study booklet we have provided an overview of the different issues and challenges associated with private suborbital spaceflight. An historical perspective was provided to set the stage for addressing the technical challenges still to be overcome. The various elements required for the business of space tourism, including spaceports, vehicle design, to include interior considerations, were addressed.

Space Life Sciences for Africa, International Cooperation for Space Life Sciences Knowledge Sharing and Development in Africa

EB036
Space Life Sciences for Africa, International Cooperation for Space Life Sciences Knowledge Sharing and Development in Africa, published in 2014, 49 pages. This cosmic study aims to develop the IAA’s strategy for space life sciences knowledge development and sharing for emerging space-faring African nations in general and for Nigeria’s National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) in particular. The study’s review of space activities in Africa reveals that two African countries—Nigeria and South Africa—have fully developed space agencies and programs.
