Links and Bibliography
I'm sure there must be other pages on the Apollo missions out there but this Nasa page and this NASA page were the only useful ones I found, and the second has now vanished!
More recently (since discovering 'proper' search engines :s ) I have found these sites: Nasa Apollo site, NASA 30th anniversary of Apollo 11, Apollo landings.
My local library was more useful. I have found the following video and books to be most useful.
- "Apollo - One Giant Leap for Mankind"
- This double video has been my main source of information.
- "The History of Manned Space Flight" by David Baker PhD, publisher New Cavendish Books
- This (large and heavy!) book has also provided a lot of useful details and lists.
- "Patrick Moore On The Moon"
- is, like all Patrick Moore books, an excellent read, and also had useful details on probes that reached the Moon.
- "A Man on the Moon" by Andrew Chaikin, publisher Penguin Books
- provides an enormous amount of information. I read it before starting on the pages, and now need to reread it to add (and check) details.
I have also looked at / made use of (in no particular order):
- "Moon Landing" by Caroline Stott, publisher Dorling Kindersley
- "Partick Moore's New Guide to the Planets" publisher Sedgewick and Jackson
- "An Illustrated Guide to the Space Shuttle: US Winged Spacecraft: X-15 to Orbiter" by Melvin Smith FBIS 1985, publisher Haynes
- "Gagarin and Armstrong: the First Steps in Space" by Clint Twist, publisher Evans BrothersLtd 1995
- "The Dream is Alive" by Barbara Embury, publisher Sumerville House Publishing
- The Encyclopedia od Stars and Planets" by A. Rukl, editor Storm Dunlop, publisher Aventium, Hamlyn
