Synopsis: Chief engineer Thomas J. Kelly gives a firsthand account of designing, building, testing, and flying the Apollo lunar module. It was, he writes, “an aerospace engineer’s dream job of the century.” Kelly’s account begins with the imaginative process of sketching solutions to a host of technical challenges with an emphasis on safety, reliability, and maintainability. He catalogs numerous test failures, including propulsion-system leaks, ascent-engine instability, stress corrosion of the aluminum alloy parts, and battery problems, as well as their fixes under the ever-present constraints of budget and schedule. He also recaptures the exhilaration of hearing Apollo 11’s Neil Armstrong report that “The Eagle has landed,” and the pride of having inadvertently provided a vital “lifeboat” for the crew of the disabled Apollo 13.

About the Author: The recipient of a Grumman Engineering Scholarship upon graduating from high school, Thomas J. Kelly worked for the company for more than forty years, retiring in 1992. Now an aerospace and computer consultant, he lives in Cutchogue, New York.

Book Description Smithsonian Institution Press, 2001. Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. NOT a library discard; privately owned. Hardback book with dust jacket has been gently read. The NEAR FINE dust jacket is BRIGHT and COMPLETE. It looks SUPER under the fresh mylar cover I've added. The book is sturdy, crisp and clean with NO WRITING and NO REMAINDER MARK. There is a very slight spine lean which is why I have rated the book only "very good". PACKED WITH CARE AND SHIPPED IN A BOX! This is the 3rd printing. Bookseller Inventory # 28862-x-B39
