9780786458592: The Human Archaeology of Space: Lunar, Planetary and Interstellar Relics of Exploration

A catalog of archaeological artifacts that have been left behind in space as a result of human exploration, this work describes the remnants of lost satellites, discarded lunar rovers, depleted rockets, and various abandoned spacecraft. The book is divided into three parts covering distinct but interconnected issues of lunar, planetary, and interstellar archaeology. In Parts I and II, individual chapters cover each space mission and provide technical notes, and, in some cases, images of the artifacts. Part III explores the archaeology of mobile artifacts in the solar system and the wider galaxy, looking particularly at the problems encountered in attempting a traditional archaeological field survey of artifacts that may remain in motion indefinitely.

About the Author:

Historical archaeologist P.J. Capelotti of Penn State University is author or editor of more than a dozen non-fiction histories, including By Airship to the North Pole: an archaeology of human exploration (1999), Sea Drift: Rafting Adventures in the Wake of Kon-Tiki (2001), Life and Death on the Greenland Patrol (2005), The Whaling Expedition of the Ulysses (2010), and Shipwreck at Cape Flora: The Arctic expeditions of England's forgotten explorer, Benjamin Leigh Smith (forthcoming in 2013).  His theory of archaeological research in space: The Human Archaeology of Space, was published in 2010 by McFarland.  A volume of essays and poetry, Gods Meadow: a summer of poems on the edge of Oslo fjord, was published in 2005, and his first novel, Nautilus: a modern sequel to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, has been described by Clive Cussler as "an amazing tale filled with enigmas filled with riddles and dark mysteries. Truly a fascinating read."

Review:

This is an original and fascinating book, providing a different and intriguing perspective on the missions in question.  -Spaceflight 53(1): 36, January 2011.
