About the Book

This book provides a mathematically detailed presentation of chemical rockets and chemical rocket fuels. The book includes mathematical exploration of chemical rockets able to obtain velocities ranging from Keplerian velocities thru ironically the speed of light. Chemical rocket concepts are presented for which the spacecraft Lorentz factors are so large such that the spacecraft velocities of travel are quantum mechanically indistinguishable from the speed of light. Tens of thousands of specific scenarios are provided.
