Description

Haynes NASA Apollo 11 Manual (1969, including Saturn V, CM-107, SM-107, LM-5): An Insight into the Hardware from the First Manned Mission to Land on the Moon, NASA mission AS-506.

On 20 July 1969, US astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. This is the story of the Apollo 11 mission and the ‘space hardware’ that made it all possible. This manual looks at the evolution and design of the mighty Saturn V rocket, the Command and Service Modules, and the Lunar Module. It describes the space suits worn by the crew and their special life support systems. We learn about how the Apollo 11 mission was flown – from launch procedures to ‘flying’ the Saturn V and the ‘LEM’, and from moon walking to the earth re-entry procedure.

  • Unique ‘how it works’ and ‘how you fly it’ guide to Apollo 11.
  • Expertly explained, with stunning illustrations.
  • Beyond Apollo 11 – Apollos 12 to 20.
  • The legacy.

Hardback, 270×210mm, 176 pages, 220 colour & 125 b&w illustrations

User Reviews

“This is a superb book. If you were lucky enough to the see the Discovery channel's ‘Moon Machines’ series then you'll have an idea what to expect. This is a history of the Apollo programme (and to a lesser extent the manned spaceflight programme) presented with excellent illustrations (original technical drawings, extremely rare photographs, great diagrams etc) and accompanied by well written and informative prose. If you appreciate Apollo or have any interest in spaceflight engineering then I would urge you to buy this book. It's VERY good.” P White

“Alas, no guidance for a flawless free return trajectory…but excellent all the same. Well done Mssrs Riley and Dolling. This book is an excellent reference on the development and design of the various Apollo crafts in line with other recent (tongue-in-cheek) Haynes Manuals. I was really excited when I saw news of this manual being published as I've been waiting for 40 years for something like this. In truth, it is not a ‘workshop manual’ and I wish it gave more detail on what all the dials and buttons on the CSM dashboard are there for (some of the drawings are too small to decipher), but you do get information to help you steer through the roll and yaw and point the craft for a successful translunar injection.....so no more ossilating orbits between Pluto and Mars for me. There is also some useful information deriving from the later Apollo 13 debacle. It won't help you fix the defective main bus B undervolt but at least you'll understand the relationship between the fuel cells and oxygen tanks! Also contains useful information on how to use the urine dump properly. What a relief!” digger
