On July 20, 1969, US astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon. The Apollo 11 mission that carried them and fellow astronaut Michael Collins on their epic journey marked the successful culmination of a quest that, ironically, had begun in Nazi Germany thirty years before. This is the story of the Apollo 11 mission and the ‘space hardware’ that made it all possible. Author Chris Riley looks at the evolution and design of the mighty Saturn V rocket, the Command and Service Modules, and the Lunar Module. He also describes the space suits worn by the crew, with their special life support systems. Launch procedures are described, ‘flying’ the Saturn V, navigation, course correction ‘burns’, orbital rendezvous techniques, flying the LEM, moon landing, moon walk, take-off from the moon, and earth re-entry procedure. Includes performance data, fuels, biographies of Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, Gene Kranz and Werner von Braun. Detailed appendices cover all of the Apollo missions, with full details of crews, spacecraft names and logos, mission priorities, moon landing sites, and the Lunar Rover.

Successful Haynes Manual format. Unique 'how it works' and 'how you fly it' guide to Apollo 11. Expertly explained by an award-winning film-maker. Stunning illustrations. Published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing.
