Most widely held works by Thomas M Donahue
Planetary sciences : American and Soviet research : proceedings from the US-USSR Workshop on Planetary Sciences, January 2-6, 1989, [sponsored by] Academy of Sciences of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America by US-USSR Workshop on Planetary Sciences( Book )

11 editions published between 1900 and 1991 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the proceedings from a workshop on planetary sciences sponsored by the Academy of Sciences of the USSR and the National Academy of Sciences. The proceedings include papers written by American and Soviet scientists who examine the current theoretical understanding of how the planets were formed and how they evolved to their present state. They assess the type of observations and experiments that are needed to advance understanding of the formation and evolution of the solar system based on the current theoretical framework

Fundamental physics and chemistry by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early in 1984, NASA asked the Space Science Board to undertake a study to determine the principal scientific issues that the disciplines of space science would face during the period from about 1995 to 2015. The findings of this study are published in this volume

Theoretical and experimental studies of questions developed by a study of air fluorescence as a method of detecting nuclear explosions( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Energy loss processes for electrons in atmospheric gases have been studied in the laboratory and in the aurora with sounding rockets. Results include cross sections for dissociative excitation of species such as O2 and CO2 and excitation and ionization cross sections for N2 and O2. (Author)
Oral history interviews. Space Science: Voyager by Center for History of Physics (American Institute of Physics)( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Interviews were conducted with members of the project's collaboration using a structured question set covering all stages of in the collaborative research process: the formation of the collaboration and its personnel; the organizational structure; the formation of the experiment teams; the drafting of the proposal; funding for U.S. groups by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; use of subcontractors; development of software for data collection and analysis; the collaboration's decision-making style; role of the Project Manager, Project Scientist, Program Manager, Program Scientist, and graduates students; impact of internationalism; patterns of communications; records creation, use, distribution, and retention; also, comments on the interviewee's home institution and trends in graduate education in space science. Interviews (listed by institutional member of the collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: Goddard Space Flight Center: Barney Conrath, F. Michael Flasar, Rudolph Hanel; Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology: John Casani, Ernest Franzgrote, Charles Kohlhase, Arthur Lane, Harris Schurmeier, Edward Stone, George Textor; NASA Headquarters: Warren Keller, Ichtique Rasool; Observatoire de Paris: Daniel Gautier; Rice University: Michael Allison; University of Arizona: A.

Formation of negative ions in a gas by charge transfer from a fast atomic hydrogen beam( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Structure has been reported in the electron loss cross section for hydrogen atoms in H2. Study of the structure in various gases shows that there is no structure for collisions with argon but nine peaks of magnitude 10 to the -16th cm squared between 8 and 40 Kev in CO. Analysis of these peaks support the idea advanced for hydrogen gas that the peaks are caused by formation of negative ions in the target gas by a process in which the electron is captured as though it were a free electron. Mass spectroscopic study reveals that negative ions are formed when hydrogen atoms pass through CO, H2, O2 and H2O. The formation rate varies in CO as predicted from the loss cross section structure and the cross section is approximately 10 to the -16th cm squared. However the type of ions formed does not support the detailed model of the capture process. (Author)
