Another book focused on (micro-) gravity research in both physical and life sciences entitled: "Generation and Applications of Extra-Terrestrial Environments on Earth", edited by Daniel Beysens and Jack J.W.A. van Loon, also received the 2017 International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) Book Award but now in the category of Engineering Sciences. The book describes all the possibilities and types of facilities that can be used on ground to perform gravity and simulated space flight conditions research. The book entails contributions by many top scientists in the field. IAA book award committee members recognized the value of this reference and comprehensive work for the science community.
