Apollo 15 : preliminary science report by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.)( Book )

6 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Apollo 15 mission was the first of the Apollo missions to utilize the full capability of a complex set of spacecraft and launch vehicles ... provided results that furnish many new insights into lunar history and structure. Perhaps most important of all, this mission provided results that give a meaningful overall picture of the Moon. The scientific endeavors of the Apollo 15 mission can be divided into three distinct kinds of activities: (1) the orbital experiments, 12) the package of lunar-surface experiments, and (3) the surface sampling and observation."--Page xi
Analysis of Apollo 10 : photography and visual observations by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Apollo 10 mission was a vital step toward the national goal of landing men on the Moon and returning them safely to Earth. This mission used the first complete Apollo spacecraft flown in lunar orbit and took men closer to the Moon than ever before. Each Apollo lunar mission acquires photographs of areas on the Moon never before seen in such great detail. This report provides only a small sample of the types of analysis that can be performed with this photography. Even more important, however, this report provides scientists throughout the world with a knowledge of what new lunar photography is available and how the photograph can be obtained. It is hoped that more extensive analysis of this photography will continue ..."--Page iii
Analysis of Apollo 8 : photography and visual observations by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Includes photography and visual observations by the astronauts. Provides the lunar photography available from Apollo 8 and how the photograph can be obtained. ... "For the first time, good high-illumination photographs were taken from a spacecraft so that areas of different reflectivity could be delineated; in particular, rayed craters and mare areas. Apollo 8 far-side photography also includes the best terminator photography obtained from a spacecraft. Both the high-Sun and low-Sun vertical photographs show good detail of the area directly under the orbital track, and the oblique photographs reveal a mountain range that had not been previously identified."--Page 16
Apollo 16: preliminary science report by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Apollo 16 flight and lunar landing are discussed with emphasis on the scientific endeavors conducted to explore the lunar highlands. The scientific investigations of the mission covered three broad areas: lunar surface sampling and observation, lunar surface experiments, and inflight experiments, which included three biomedical studies. Geologic studies included sample collection, soil mechanics, activation of passive and active seismometers, and lunar surface magnetometry. Radiation-related studies included far UV camera/spectroscopy, solar wind composition, cosmic ray spectra, gegenschein photography, gamma ray spectrometry, X-ray spectrometry, alpha particle spectrometry, mass spectrum analysis, subsatellite measurement of plasma and energetic particles, S-band transponder tracking, and bistatic radar probe. Additional experiments included ultraviolet photography of the Earth and Moon, flux of meteoroids, and biomedical experiments. The biomedical experiments were studies of the biological effects of galactic cosmic radiation using the biostack module, light flash observation, and a microbial ecology evaluation device

Apollo 14 : preliminary science report by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Apollo 14, the third mission during which men have worked on the surface of the Moon, was highly successful. This mission to the Fra Mauro Formation provided geophysical data from a new set of instruments ... Because of improved equipment, such as the modularized equipment transporter, and because of the extended time spent on the lunar surface, a large quantity and variety of lunar samples were returned to Earth for detailed examination. New information concerning the mechanics of the lunar soil was also obtained during this mission. In addition, five lunar-orbital experiments were conducted during the Apollo 14 mission, needing no new equipment other than a camera. The experiments were executed by the command module pilot in the command and service module while the commander and the lunar module pilot were on the surface of the Moon. This report is preliminary in nature; however, it is meant to acquaint the reader with the actual conduct of the Apollo 14 scientific mission and to record the facts as they appear in the early stages of the scientific mission evaluation. As far as possible, data trends are reported, and preliminary results and conclusions are included."--Page xi

Apollo 12 preliminary science report by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Apollo 11 Mission, primarily designed to land men on the Moon and return them safely to Earth, signaled a new phase of the manned space program. Based on the success of Apollo 11, the first of a series of missions designed for the systematic exploration of the Moon was successfully accomplished on Apollo 12. The fact that the Apollo 12 astronauts were able to achieve a pinpoint landing at a preselected site, and then spend an extended time on the lunar surface, graphically illustrates the rapid progress of the Apollo program. The Apollo 12 mission added significantly to man's knowledge of the Moon. The precise landing capability allowed the crew to accomplish a wide variety of preplanned tasks and paved the way for planning future missions to smaller, more selected landing areas with the possibility of significant scientific returns. The publication includes chapters on mission description, summary of scientific results, photographic summary of the Apollo 12 Mission, crew observations, passive seismic experiment, lunar surface magnetometer experiment, the solar-wind spectrometer experiment, suprathermal ion detector experiment (lunar ionosphere detector), cold cathode gage (lunar atmosphere detector), the solar-wind composition experiment, Apollo 12 multispectral photography experiment, preliminary geologic investigation of the Apollo 12 landing site, lunar surface closeup stereoscopic photography, preliminary examination of lunar samples, and preliminary results from Surveyor 3 analysis
Conference on Materials for Improved Fire Safety : [papers] by Conference on Materials for Improved Fire Safety( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leaders in an impressive variety of industries and Government agencies were briefed for two days in May 1970 at the Manned Spacecraft Center near Houston on studies of combustion, tests of materials, and methods of curbing fires. The research and development work described was done as part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Apollo program to land men on the Moon. The hazards were extraordinary, and both new procedures and new materials were developed to protect the astronauts in the spacecraft. This Special Publication was compiled from technical papers prepared for that Conference on Materials for Improved Fire Safety."--Preface
