Haynes Manual

Haynes have brought out a manual to celebrate the Apollo 11 Moon Landing!

"On 20 July 1969, US astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. This is the story of the Apollo 11 mission and the 'space hardware' that made it all possible. This manual looks at the evolution and design of the mighty Saturn V rocket, the Command and Service Modules, and the Lunar Module. It describes the space suits worn by the crew and their special life support systems. We learn about how the Apollo 11 mission was flown - from launch procedures to 'flying' the Saturn V and the 'LEM', and from moon walking to the earth re-entry procedure."

Now I know that I have used these manuals to repair and service most of my cars and they are superb! How much time have I spent under a car with my trusty Haynes Manual at my side. I wonder if they took one of these on the Apollo Missions?

What can I say...I just ordered one!
