NASA has released a few books for free in the Kindle format on their website. The types of books NASA releases aren’t science fiction thrillers, but more documentaries of what they have accomplished over the years, and when I have sent posts about prior offering they have been pretty popular.
One you might be interested in is called NASA’s Contributions to Aeronautics, Volume 1 and is edited by Richard P. Hallion. You can click here or type in http://tinyurl.com/rhallion into your web browser to grab your Kindle copy.
Once you have downloaded it to your computer, you will need to transfer it over to your Kindle. It’s pretty easy, and you can click here or type in http://smarturl.it/xfer into your web browser for my instructions on how to do it – this is the same guide I charge 99 cents for in the Amazon Kindle store, but you can read it for free by clicking the link.
Here is the Volume 1’s description from the NASA website:
Since its creation, NASA has steadily advanced flight within the atmosphere, repeatedly influencing aviation’s evolution by extending the rich legacy of its predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, or NACA. This first volume in a two-volume set includes case studies and essays on NACA-NASA research for contributions such as high-speed wing design, the area rule, rotary-wing aerodynamics research, sonic boom mitigation, hypersonic design, computational fluid dynamics, electronic flight control and environmentally friendly aircraft technology.
Here is Volume 2’s description from the NASA website:
The second volume includes case studies and essays on NACA-NASA research for contributions including wind shear and lightning research, flight operations, human factors, wind tunnels, composite structures, general aviation aircraft safety, supersonic cruise aircraft research and atmospheric icing.
