Description:
With the passage of time and the subsequent opening of archives on both sides of the space race, there are opportunities not present before to reconsider Project Apollo anew. This new book in the NASA History Series seeks to draw out the statistical information about each of the flights that have been long buried in numerous technical memoranda and historical studies. It seeks to recount the missions, measuring results against the expectations for them.
