9781592481682: 20th Century NASA History: Apollo, The Ultimate Reference--Moon Landing Mission Photo Galleries, Mission Transcripts, Image Files, NASA Documents (DVD-ROM)

This incredible electronic book on DVD-ROM provides the ULTIMATE in comprehensive coverage of the Apollo lunar landing program. It combines the contents of FOUR of our best CD-ROM titles! This disc is perfect for anyone interested in the spectacular history of the Apollo lunar program! Here’s what is included:

MISSION TRANSCRIPTS AND NASA HISTORY DOCUMENTS – A magnificent collection of mission transcripts and NASA history documents from the epochal Apollo moon landing missions. Sixty-six documents provide an incredible 39,000 pages of important reference and research material! Some of the internal NASA documents in the collection have been made available for the first time by World Spaceflight News.

NASA PROGRAM DOCUMENTS - There are thousands of illustrations, drawings, schematics, tables and charts. Relive the launch countdown of Apollo 11. Press kits and mission operation reports for every flight are included, along with the wonderfully detailed Lunar Module and CSM News References, Lunar Roving Vehicle Operations Handbook, Apollo 13 Review Board report, Apollo 11 Launch Countdown - Flight Plan - Air-to-Ground Transcript - Mission Report * Apollo 17 Lunar Surface Procedures Document * On the Moon with Apollo 15 - 16 - 17 * Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) Operations Handbook * Apollo 13 Review Board Report (text) * Apollo 7 through 17 Press Kits * Lunar Module News Reference (two versions) * Apollo Command Service Module News Reference (two versions) * Apollo 8 through Apollo 17 Mission Operation Reports.

PHOTO GALLERIES AND IMAGE FILES - World Spaceflight News is proud to present the most complete collection of Apollo photographs ever gathered in one place. In addition to superb crew, vehicle, and launch photos, images from the landing missions make you feel like you're on the Moon, with majestic surface and EVA views - including sequential Hasselblad frames! We've also included 185 video and movie clips from Apollo 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, and 17 (.mpg and .mov files) that can be played on your computer. Our unique "IMAGE GALLERY" in Adobe Acrobat format reproduces the photos in a computerized "photo album" suitable for quick full-screen browsing! In the Image Gallery, many of the photos are accompanied by the official NASA caption. This format was designed to mimic the look and "feel" of a real book; there is no need to laboriously import specific images into a slow-loading program for viewing and printing. As you flip through the images in the Gallery, you can magnify photographs for better viewing. For completeness, we've also included each of the original image files (in .gif and .jpg formats) which can be copied onto your computer and used as you would any graphics file.

This DVD-ROM has over 68,000 pages reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software and Reader software is included. There is no other reference that is as fast, convenient, comprehensive, and portable! Our discs are privately-compiled collections of official public domain U.S. government files and documents - they are not produced by the federal government. They are designed to provide a convenient user-friendly reference work, utilizing the benefits of the Acrobat format to uniformly present thousands of pages that can be rapidly reviewed or printed without untold hours of tedious searching and downloading. This book-on-a-disc makes a superb reference work and educational tool.

This DVD-ROM disc is for use in a computer DVD drive. The files can be accessed from the File Explorer in the same way that you open files from a CD-ROM disc; the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM formats are functionally the same, but the DVD has more than six times greater storage capacity. Of course, this disc cannot be "played" in a DVD player connected to a television set. It contains computer-formatted data, not video.
