From the beginning, man has been an alert observer of his surroundings, always trying to understand the mysteries of nature. He became first a toolmaker then created primitive weapons necessary for his survival in an unforgiving world. Man kept evolving and developing his skills through the millennia, until in these modern times contemporary civilized man began creating great works of engineering. In the second half of the 20th century, the field of engineering, especially the field of aerospace engineering, evolved to such extent that man was able to create complex projects and programs that it made possible to put man on the moon, and also to send robots to Mars. Hopefully, man's creativity will continue to advance, performing still greater engineering tasks through the 21st century. Preliminary Designs of real engineering projects are depicted throughout this book. Extensive technical and scientific research was performed by the author prior to starting the design and the development of each of the projects. During years of engineering work, the author gained extensive experience, enabling him to develop complex projects. The result has been the development of the engineering projects shown here. This is a factual book which strictly focuses on preliminary designs of authentic advanced engineering projects whose conceptualization and development conform to the natural laws of physics and to the latest state-of-the-art technologies.
