Dark Side of the Moon: Wernher von Braun, the Third Reich and the Space Race Book

Dark Side of the Moon: Wernher von Braun, the Third Reich, and the Space Race by Wayne Biddle (September 2009)

A stunning investigation of the roots of the first moon landing. This illuminating story of the dawn of the space age reaches back to the reactionary modernism of the Third Reich, using the life of 'rocket scientist' Wernher von Braun as its narrative path through the crumbling of Weimar Germany and the rise of the Nazi regime. Von Braun, a blinkered opportunist who could apply only tunnel vision to his meteoric career, stands as an archetype of myriad twentieth century technologists who thrived under regimes of military secrecy and unlimited money. His seamless transformation from developer of the deadly V-2 ballistic missile for Hitler to an American celebrity as the supposed genius behind the golden years of the U.S. space program in the 1950s and 1960s raises haunting questions about the culture of the Cold War, the shared values of technology in totalitarian and democratic societies and the imperatives of material progress.

Apollo 11 Manual: An Insight into the Hardware from the First Manned Mission to Land on the Moon (Hardcover) by Chris Riley (Author), Phil Dolling (Author) (May 2009)

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.

Apollo 11 Book

NASA's Moon Program: Paving the Way for Apollo 11 by David M. Harland (Author) (July 2009)

David Harland explains the lure of the Moon to classical philosophers, astronomers, and geologists, and how NASA set out to investigate the Moon in preparation for a manned lunar landing mission. It focuses particularly on the Lunar Orbiter and Surveyor missions.

Digital Apollo: Human and Machine in Spaceflight by David A. Mindell (Author) (May 2008)

This book looks at how human pilots and automated systems worked together to achieve the ultimate in flight - the lunar landings of NASA's Apollo program. 'Digital Apollo' examines the design and execution of each of the six Apollo moon landings, drawing on transcripts and data telemetry from the flights, astronaut interviews, and NASA's extensive archives.

Lunar Module Book

Virtual LM : A Pictorial Essay of the Engineering and Construction of the Apollo Lunar Module by Scott P Sullivan (October 2004) 

On 7 November 1962, NASA announced that Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation, of Bethpage, New York, was selected to build the Apollo Lunar Excursion Module. Within seven years of winning the contract, the Grumman team had accomplished what many had said was impossible - despite schedule delays, budget overruns, seemingly endless design changes and congressional funding cuts, the Grumman team's perseverance and commitment to excellence produced the Apollo Lunar Module, the spacecraft that did land men on the Moon, six times, with never a failure. The Bonus CD-ROM includes: Apollo Operations Handbook, Apollo 14 Lunar Module Timeline, Apollo 15 Lunar, Module Cue Cards and Data Cards, Apollo 16 Contingency Checklist and more.

Von Braun: Dreamer of Space, Engineer of War by Michael J. Neufeld (Author) (October 2007)

Offers a multifaceted portrait of the visionary German scientist who became the chief rocket engineer of the Third Reich, creator of the V-2 rocket, reluctant SS officer, and one of the fathers of the U.S. space program.
