The NASA Mission Reports
By: Robert Godwin
Apollo 8 The NASA Mission Reports comes with a bonus Windows CDROM featuring the 22-minute NASA movie "Go For TLI" plus the entire library of in-flight Hasselblad photographs and an exclusive interview with Capt. James Lovell.
On December 21st 1968 the National Aeronautics & Space Administration sent three men to orbit the moon. Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders were to be the first humans to enter deep space. It was the boldest step yet taken in the quest to fulfill President John Kennedy’s goal of landing a man on the moon by the end of the decade.
To accomplish the task the world’s biggest and most complex rocket was built by a syndicate of America’s leading aerospace manufacturers. 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. The Apollo-Saturn V was a goliath and the flight of Apollo 8 proved it was an incredible vehicle.
The Apollo 8 NASA Mission Reports finally puts in one place SIX of the most important documents from this triumphant odyssey, The Apollo 8 Press Kit, The Apollo 8 Pre-mission Report and Objectives, The Apollo 8 Supplemental Technical Report, The Apollo 8 Post flight Summary, the Apollo 8 Post Flight Mission Operation Report and the first ever publication of the Crew Technical 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.
