APOLLO 13, PAGE ONE
I know, it's the Apollo 11 anniversary (I've been doing radio interviews all day so I oughta remember!), but I thought this was a fun bit of memorabilia to post: the first page of the Apollo 13 Flight Director's Log. Glynn Lunney, the FD on duty for the launch, opens with a *Yawn*, which would hardly be the sentiment in a couple of days...
More of these to come, and of course the *best* of them are in my book (end sales pitch here).
WELCOME TO THE FUTURE, CIRCA 1969
Welcome to the Missions to the Moon book blog. This is a place to re-live the heady days of the Apollo and Soyuz lunar programs- perhaps the crowning achievements of the 20th Century. Many blog entries will include a new downloadable image or artifact from the space age- items rarely seen and not available in print. It's all in the spirit of my newest book, Missions to the Moon- to remember the great adventure of the Golden Age of space exploration, and ponder what wonders await us in space.
