Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics, Volume 21: Thermal Design Principles of Spacecraft and Entry Bodies is a collection of technical papers drawn mainly from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Third Thermophysics Specialist Conference, held in Los Angeles, California on June 24-26, 1968 This volume is divided into three parts. The first part covers some aspects of thermal processes and design, including thermal analysis, convection, radiation, ablation, and space rocket effects. The second part surveys the remote measurements of the thermophysical and thermal radiation properties and joint conductance, which are critical criteria for space thermal design. The third part focuses on the space environmental effects on thermal coatings. This part deals first with the theory of radiative degradation, followed by a presentation of the laboratory measurements. This part also looks into the results of several flight experiments. This book will be of great value to thermophysicists, space engineers, and designers who are working in the space science fields.

Over the past six years a team of archaeologists, historians and environmental scientists from the University of Sheffield explored the island of Barra.They have discovered and recorded many hundreds of previously unknown sites and monuments, excavated selected examples, and carried out extensive environmental sampling and laboratory based analysis of all this evidence. The first volume of reports focuses on the wild and rocky peninsula of Tangaval at the south-western corner of the island. In this seemingly inhospitable place, on the westernmost margin of Europe, perched on the very edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the team have discovered almost 250 sites and monuments. They range from the first rock-shelter and occupation huts of the earliest settlers around 4000 BC to the abandoned settlements from which Macneils sailed to new homes in America and Australasia in the mid-nineteenth century BC.

'A border zone of the macabre, the disturbing, the not-quite accidental' New York Times Book Review The Black House eerily evokes the warm familiarities of suburban life: the manicured lawns, the white picket fences, and the local pubs, each providing the setting for Highsmith's chilling portraits. Some neighbours are playing scrabble one evening when their cat drags into their house not a bird, or some other catch, but human fingers; a guest arrives at a dinner party where he is not welcome, and his hosts conspire to find and attack his Achilles heel; the crew of the Emma C rescue a beautiful girl floating unconscious in the sea and tension explodes between the men on board; a childless thirty-something couple decide to invite two elderly folk to live with them, but have they been too generous? In this collection of Patricia Highsmith's wonderfully unsettling short stories, people's motives are frequently twisted and no occurrence is without a sinister underlying meaning.
