Apollo 14: The NASA Mission Reports (NASA Mission Reports) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

NASA documents uncover the 10 hours spent on the moon by astronauts Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell.

Synopsis:

After the unfortunate accident which befell Apollo 13 the job of getting NASA back to the moon fell on the shoulders of America's oldest astronaut Alan B. Shepard.

Spending nearly 10 hours on the moon in February 1971 Shepard and Lunar Module pilot Edgar Mitchell conducted a wide range of scientific experiments including Shepard's unplanned test of the flight of a golf ball in lunar gravity.

Once more the world sat and watched in awe as the United States successfully put two more men on the moon's surface while Stuart Roosa orbited above in the Command Module Kitty Hawk.

Apollo 14 returned to the Earth with a treasure trove of lunar data and over 100 pounds of moon rocks.

In "Apollo 14 The NASA Mission Reports" some of the rare official documentation of the voyage of Apollo 14 is collected and made available for the first time.
