The partnership : a history of the Apollo-Soyuz test project by Edward Clinton Ezell( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1975 Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) was the first joint U.S.-Soviet space flight, in which teams from the two nations met in orbit to test an international docking system and conduct both collaborative and independent studies. Although primarily a symbol of international goodwill, the mission provided useful experience for future cooperative ventures between the two nations. This authorized NASA history features many fascinating interviews with participants as well as firsthand observations of ASTP activities. Because details of the Soviet space program remained shrouded in secrecy during the ASTP, the story is told from the American perspective. No scientific background is necessary to appreciate the narrative, which focuses on the participants' working relationships rather than the technical aspects of their jobs. Starting with the early years of the Cold War competition, it traces the formation of an alliance between NASA and Soviet Academy engineers in developing a test project, training the crew, and the triumphant flight. Eighty-six pages of photographs include twelve full-color pages with images of Earth from space

Skylab, classroom in space by George C Marshall( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Skylab student project was designed and administered by the National Science Teachers Association. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration invited students in United States high schools to submit proposals for experiments that could be performed on board Skylab by the astronauts during their tours of duty. Experiments were designed to make the best possible use of the Skylab environment. The purpose of the student project was to encourage interest in science and engineering careers. Student experiments included studies of the central nervous system, cells in space, embryo development in space, weight and weightlessness, fluids in zero gravity, exploring the stars and planets, celestial objects in space, particle physics in space, and observing Earth from space. Science demonstrations included fluid behavior in zero gravity, mechanics, magnetic effects, particle physics, crystal growth, and life sciences

Moonport : a history of Apollo launch facilities and operations by Charles D Benson( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moonport presents a solid historical analysis of one of the twentieth century's most impressive technological achievements: the building and operation of the launch complex in Florida from which the United States undertook its Apollo lunar expeditions. Using official documents, letters, reports, and memoranda, the authors have provided a lucid account of the highly complex process of construction and operation at the Kennedy Space Center. As this manuscript was being prepared, these same facilities were being modified to serve as the launch site for Apollo's successor, the Space Shuttle
