    I m a NASA human systems integrator working on intelligence and automation for human spaceflight This is an excellent reference if you re a rocket scientist literally About three quarters of the book is dedicated to the design of aerospace vehicles for any mission example there s a whole chapter on hypersonic aerodynamics Only about two and a half chapters are roughly devoted to human spaceflight app
