Space Tug by Murray Leinster:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Fifties space yarn has some fascinating ideas for space flight and space technology. The story itself is fairly simple; you'll want to read this one for the gadgets and situations. Very well imagined by Leinster.

Garbage Screen - chaff in space

Inflatable Air Lock - very early reference

Pushpot

Space Flight Simulator

Space Wagon
