NASA Space Mechanisms Handbook
and Reference Guide

The NASA Space Mechanisms Handbook and Reference Guide DVD is a fully searchable disk that includes:

An update of the Reference Guide was issued on DVD in October, 2009 that includes many additional reports.  The DVD includes the proceedings of the first 39 Aerospace Mechanisms Symposia (1966 to 2008).  The 1999 Space Mechanisms Handbook was not updated.

Our funds for duplicating the DVD are limited.  Please share the disk with your colleagues so long as you do not give it to foreign nationals or a foreign company.

We have a few copies of the original year 2000 2-CD set for people who cannot read a DVD.  Please specify on the form if you want the CDs.  The CD's do not have the newly added reports.
