Module overview

This module is essential for anyone interested in pursuing space in the spacecraft theme or as an individual project. It builds on the basics first introduced in Part 2 and looks at each of the key subsystems of a spacecraft in detail. The module includes orbital and trajectory theory, where two-body motion, manoeuvres and special trajectories are described. Sequence and issues during entry, descent and landing (EDL) operations are covered in detail. The module may include design practice on thermal and power sub-system.
