This study looks at the subject knowledge of generalist primary trainees in the areas of geometry and probability and their ability to apply their knowledge to problem solving(More)
The latest NASA initiative for Human Space, namely the Space Exploration Vision, which encompasses Project Constellation, provides new opportunities for system implementation. The second wave of development after Crew Exploration Vehicle and Crew Launch Vehicle development, and following Shuttle retirement, will be development of lunar base concepts and(More)
