I recently sent back to the publisher the proofs on my Haynes Owners' Workshop Manual on Cassini-Huygens.
It should be out at the end of April, just around Cassini's last Titan encounter.
Hardback 196 pages, 325 images – many of which have not been seen in public before.
The book covers the origins of Cassini, details of the hardware of Huygens, Cassini and their science instruments,
and the special testing needed for them. It portrays how they were integrated at KSC with the radioisotope
power source and the Titan IV-Centaur launch vehicle, and describes how the trajectory around Saturn was
designed, and how the thousands of science observations were planned. There's a little on results from the
mission, as well as a review of some of the exotic future mission concepts that have been proposed. I think
a valuable element included is treatment of some of the challenges and fixes, like Huygens' radio relay, the
failure of Cassini's propulsion system pressure regulator just after launch, trouble with Cassini's reaction wheels,
and so on.
Amazon.com lists it at $36. I hope it might be of interest to many UMSF readers.
