Apollo 15 : preliminary science report by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.) ( Book )
2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 309 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 8 : photography and visual observations by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.) ( Book )
3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 277 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

Analysis of Apollo 10 : photography and visual observations by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.) ( Book )
2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 273 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
Results of the third U.S. manned orbital space flight, October 3, 1962 by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.) ( Book )
2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document presents the results of the third United States manned orbital space flight conducted on October 3, 1962. The performance discussions of the spacecraft and launch-vehicle systems, the flight control personnel, and the astronaut, together with a detailed analysis of the medical aspects of the flight, form a continuation of the information previously published for the first two United States manned orbital flights, conducted on February 20 and May 24, 1962, and the two manned suborbital space flights.--p. iii

"This document presents the results of the second United States manned orbital space flight conducted on May 24, 1962. The performance discussions of the spacecraft and launch systems, the modified Mercury Network, mission support personnel, and the astronaut, together with analyses of observed space phenomena and the medical aspects of the mission, form a continuation of the information previously published for the first United States manned orbital flight, conducted on February 20, 1962, and the two manned sub-orbital space flights."--Page iii

Apollo 14 : preliminary science report by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.) ( Book )
2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 192 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

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 123 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
