Course subject(s) Module 5. Selection of Materials and Structures

In this lecture, Gillian takes you literally to her drawing board and shows you how to size a spacecraft that is being launched on the Ariane 5 launch vehicle by hand (well, you will also need a calculator). Some real rocket science calculations are being done today!
