Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On December 21, 1968 the National Aeronautics and Space Administration sent three men to orbit the moon.

Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot Willam Anders were to be the first living creatures to enter deep space. It was the boldest step yet taken in the quest to fulfill President John Kennedyand#8217;s goal of landing a man on the moon by the end of the decade.

To accomplish the task the worldand#8217;s biggest and most complex machine was built by a syndicate of Americaand#8217;s leading aerospace manufacturers. The Apollo-Saturn V was a goliath and the flight of Apollo 8 proved it was an incredible vehicle.

Capable of throwing over 100,000 pounds to the moon it was at that time the most complex machine ever devised by the hand of man.

Apollo 8: The NASA Mission Reports finally puts in one place six of the most important documents from this triumphant odyssey, The Press Kit, The Pre-mission Report and Objectives, The Supplemental Technical Report, The Post Flight Summary, the Post Flight Mission Operation Report and the Crew Debriefing.

These six documents show the staggering proportions of the undertaking required to send men into lunar orbit. It is a testament to the ingenuity of the American people and the bold courage of three men.

Includes: CD-ROM with Captain Lovell Interview, plus hundreds of pictures!

Synopsis:

This Second Edition adds two new documents, 850 pictures and an exclusive interview with Jim Lovell to the original volume.
