AIR FORCE ACADEMY
SPACE SCIENCES TEXTBOOK
Colonel Donald G. Carpenter
ENVIRONMENTAL SPACE SCIENCES is a book taught at the Air Force Academy and written by Professor who was the originator of the Space Science Course at the USAF Academy. Colonel was also the Commander of the SPACETRACK Radar Site at Shemya, Alaska. Col. Carpenter was kind enough to send Eastern MUFON the book he edited and wrote with six other officers. Most of the book pertains to science of space, the sun, planets, plasmas, magnetic fields, radiation, meteors, planets, space dust, Cosmo chemistry, the planets and moons. George Filer copied this chapter manually for you the reader, because I felt it was of importance, so I hope you enjoy it.
All the chapters are of interest to the Ufologist, such as the Search for Extraterrestrial Life, but most important is Chapter XXXIII “The UFO Mystery.”
