The Apollo Missions - CD-Roms
The Space Race - Apollo badges

ONE SMALL STEP celebrates the 30th anniversary of NASA's historic July 1969 moon landing, the milestone that was the culmination of John F. Kennedy's 1961 commitment to putting a man on the moon by the end of the decade.   Filled with documentary photographs from NASA and the National Air and Space Museum as well as images from film, television, and
advertising, this beautiful book looks at our fascination with outer space, the development of NASA, the training of the Apollo 11 astronauts, and the thrilling televised lunar landing that captivated the world.   The text also explores the cultural influence of space travel, from 1950s sci-fi movies and 2001: A Space Odyssey, to space-oriented fashions and toys.   This delightful, nostalgic volume reminds older readers of the thrill of the moon landing, while it illuminates the space race for younger readers.   A lively illustrated volume that takes a fond look back at the historic 1969 moon landing.

The book includes the Press Kit and Pre and Post flight Mission reports.  As an added bonus we have included the Post-flight press conference in the crews own words. The CDROM includes two 30 minute movies of the flight as well as over 1300 still pictures taken during the mission.   We are particularly happy with the Quicktime Virtual Reality of Tranquillity Base
which was constructed from the original 70 mm images taken by Neil Armstrong.    The CDROM includes three different panoramas and although you can view them in your browser we recommend you view them using the Movie Player provided, to get the full effect.

A treasure trove for Space afficionados.   The Apollo 11 Mission Reports Vol One with foreword by Buzz Aldrin truly contains some amazing details about the mission. It's not just another picture book about planting the flag.   This really tells everybody from novices and students right up to aerospace engineers how it was done.    You could almost fly your own mission with the plethora of detail enclosed here.   The CD-ROM contains one hour of official NASA video, as well as EVERY 70mm photo taken by the crew (1395) cataloged in order. It also contains something completely new...  Three of the panoramas taken by Neil of Tranquility base have been stitched together into a seamless Quick Time Video that you can pan and zoom around.    This gives an awesome never before seen vista of what it really looked like up there. Vol two book contains the recently declassified (for this book) official crew debriefing in Houston after the mission in the crews own words.   It is fascinating and tells you what it was really like on that mission, including the famous UFO report in their own words (particularly intriguing).   The CD_ROM in Vol two includes the full 2.5 hour uncut unedited moonwalk, the fourth panorama taken by Buzz, as well as an exclusive video interview (50min) with Buzz himself.   The Quick Time videos of the landing site makes one feel like being in a movie. Outstanding!!

Apollo 11: The NASA Mission Reports
by Robert Godwin
Paperback & Cd Rom (1999)

 We needed a second volume.   I am particularly proud of our accomplishments with Volume 2 of Apollo 11.   Not only is it the first time that the post-flight debriefing has been published to the public but we also have pushed the CDROM to capacity. We have included, nearly 3½ hours of video.   The entire uncut television broadcast of the moonwalk, but also an exclusive interview with Buzz Aldrin conducted in June 99.   We also managed to cram on one more Quicktime VR panorama of Tranquillity Base, this one includes the only good photograph of Neil Armstrong on the surface while processing the bulk sample.    Make sure you view the VR using the QT player to get the full effect.

 A must reference for ANY Space History Buff ...    The APOLLO MISSION REPORTS published by Apogee Books, are an excellent source for Space History buffs.   Each book includes press kits from the flight, pre and post mission summaries, and a fabulous bonus CDROM which has the official NASA mission report movies lasting about 17-29 minutes.   The CD also has some GREAT color and black and white photographs.   I recommend them as a great resource!

for all us model makers out there.
