When Congress created the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) 25 years ago, it directed that information derived from the agency's pursuit of knowledge through space exploration and aeronautical research be made available to all Americans. This has been accomplished through a series of scientific and technical publications. One series, NASA Special Publications, includes mission reports, aerodynamic treatises, structural analyses, planetary atlases, conference proceedings, extensive reference materials, and other material whose scope and significance outgrew the bounds of customary research reports and journal articles. This document provides lists of all Special Publications that NASA has published since the series began in 1961. Entries are presented under the followng categories: general publications; handbooks and data compilations; technology utilization; management evaluation and analysis standards; bibliographies; space vehicle design criteria; specifications; reference publications; and conference publications. Each entry includes title, author(s), publication date and number, number of pages, original sales source, and (when appropriate) a brief annotation. Entries are also listed by document number in a subject index. Subject index categories include: aeronautics; astronautics; chemistry and materials; engineering; geosciences; life sciences; mathematical and computer sciences; physics; social sciences; and space sciences.
