Rocket Pioneers Space Exploration from Dream to
Reality
4
Rocket Pioneers
  • Inspiration
  • Jules Verne
  • Fathers of Rocketry
  • Tsiolkovsky
  • Goddard
  • Oberth
  • Rocket Engineer
  • Von Braun

5
Jules Verne
1828 - 1904
  • Wrote various poems, novels, and short stories
  • 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
  • Around the World in 80 Days
  • A Journey to the Center of the Earth
  • From the Earth to the Moon
  • Predictions from his writing
  • Long distance travel in balloon
  • Very long range cannon
  • Helicopter
  • Apollo project that led the first men to
    the Moon in 1969
  • Interplanetary travels
  • Electrical engine

6
K.E. Tsiolkovsky
Father of Russian Astronautics (1857 1935)
  • Specialized in liquid fuel propellants,
  • multistage rockets, and space travel
  • Theoretical Scientist but never made a rocket
    himself
  • Famous Rocket Equation
  • Predictions
  • - Orbital space station
  • - Settlements outside of Earth

To set foot on the soil of the asteroids, to
lift by hand a rock from the Moon, to observe
Mars from a distance of several tens of
kilometers, to land on its satellite or even on
its surface, what can be more fantastic? -
Tsiolkovsky

Robert Goddard
Father of American modern rocket propulsion
1882-1945
  • Some Historical Firsts for Goddard
  • First proved that a rocket will work in a vacuum,
    that it needs no air to push against
  • First received U.S. patent in idea of multi-stage
    rocket, 1914
  • First developed and shot a liquid fuel rocket,
    March 16,1926
  • First developed gyro control apparatus for rocket
    flight

Robert H. Goddard besides 1926 liquid- fueled
rocket. Flew 41 ft. in the air.
It is difficult to say what is impossible, for
the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and
reality of tomorrow. - Goddard
8
Hermann Oberth
Father of Space Travel
Romania, 1894-1989
  • Inspired by Jules Vernes famous novel
  • From Earth to the Moon
  • 1923, he became the first to prove that rockets
    could put a man into space
  • He originated the idea of a multi-stage rocket
  • V-2 (Vengeance) rocket, World War II
  • He was the first person to suggest an manned
    orbiting laboratory similar to what is now the
    International Space Station (ISS)

9
Werner Von Braun
German Rocket Engineer
1912-1977
  • Assistant to Hermann Oberth for V-2 rocket
  • Taken to the US after the war
  • Director of Marshall Space Flight Center, Alabama
  • Programs at NASA
  • Redstone Rocket
  • - launched first satellite for western
    hemisphere
  • Saturn V and 1B
  • - Used to carry astronauts to the Moon on Apollo
    missions
  • - Used to launch Skylab, worlds first space
    station

Career Opportunities in the Space Industry
12
Behind the Scenes of a Mission
  • To accomplish a mission, engineers are broken
    down into teams
  • - airframe/structure
  • - propulsion system
  • - guidance, navigation, and control
  • - thermal systems
  • - power systems
  • - human living environment systems
  • - science payloads to orbit
  • - microgravity science experiments
  • These teams are further broken down into
    sub-teams

A successful mission requires thousands of
engineers and scientists working together across
the country
13
Case Study Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and
Opportunity
14
Fields in Aerospace Engineering
  • Manned Missions
  • Un-Manned Missions
  • - Science Research and Exploration
  • - Communications and National Defense
  • Private Industry Competition

What are UT Students Doing?
  • CanSat
  • Small Coke can sized satellite
  • Launched to 12,000 feet in 2002
  • FASTRAC
  • Automatically performs navigation maneuvers
    between 2 satellites
  • Tracking Station
  • Able to send/receive information about satellites
    and their orbits

Exciting Projects Break New Ground
20
The Weightless Wonder
  • KC-135 Projects
  • Satellite Orientation Control
  • Satellite Separation
  • Flame Studies

KC-135 Projects Allow Students to feel
weightless
