This book will provide for the first time a comprehensive manual on how NASA works and operates its programmes, opening the door to the general reader, and the visitor to NASA facilities, a directory of information on what to find, what to see and how it all fits together. This book avoids the detail on specific programmes and projects – these are already adequately covered in dedicated Haynes Workshop Manuals. Instead, it focuses on what exists at the various facilities across the United States and the technical parameters of their equipment and laboratory assets.

In the mid-1960s NASA began planning what to do after the goal of President Kennedy had been met and astronauts had landed on the Moon. A comprehensive plan quickly emerged to use left-over Apollo hardware to mount an expanding range of new capabilities - space stations, space bases, Moon-orbiting laboratories and temporary human settlements on the lunar surface. But NASA wanted more and looked to what it called a "Post-Apollo" era in which new and more exciting possibilities could set in train a series of missions which would have astronauts landing on the surface of Mars by the mid-1980s. The Post-Apollo Program would support development of nuclear rocket engines for powering big rocket stages (Nuclear Shuttles) plying between Earth orbit and Moon orbit and between Earth orbit and Mars, sending human expeditions deep into the solar system. By the end of the 1960s, as Americans were about to land on the Moon, studies were refined and a plea went out to industry to design 12-man Earth orbiting space stations, 100-man space bases with artificial weightlessness, shuttlecraft plying between the surface of the Earth and low-Earth orbit, Space Tug vehicles kept in space shuttling satellites between low-Earth orbit (where they had been delivered by shuttlecraft) and geostationary orbit where communications and TV satellites reside to do their work. Using elements of this vast space transportation network, the first missions to Mars would occur during the first half of the 1980s, building bases on the surface of the Red Planet to set up the first scientific surveys, with vehicles taking scientists and explorers hundreds of kilometres across the dusty plains. Back came the detailed design plans for these mighty and ambitious projects, supported by the film industry. which visited NASA facilities, during which Kubrick and Clarke wrote 2001: A Space Odyssey using the plans already been put on blueprints in countless design offices of the US aerospace industry. There were even detailed maps of which area to send out expeditions across the surface of the Moon and the surface of Mars. By the early 1970s all these dreams were gone and the plans so comprehensively laid out had been relegated to the dusty shelves of history. But some projects lingered on. NASA and the Atomic Energy Commission built and tested prototype nuclear rocket motors which would have powered what was called the Nuclear Shuttle (the rocket stages always kept in space and refuelled from tankers brought up in shuttlecraft). But, eventually, all these plans were to be abandoned and all that was left was to build the Space Shuttle, eventually putting together a modular space station at the end of the century. All the plans, documentation, images and graphics pushing this Post-Apollo plan are in the possession of the author, and this book proposes to publish all these exciting and ambitious projects supported by colour artwork, detailed engineering drawings and images of hardware on test, including the nuclear rocket motors. It tells the story of what could have been and what was abandoned but what lives on in the memory and in the preserved archives of those involved in its formulation - including the author.

The NASA aircraft operations program is a multifaceted, highly diverse entity that directly supports the agency mission in aeronautical research and development, space science and applications, space flight, astronaut readiness training, and related activities through research and development, program support, and mission management aircraft operations flights. Users of the program are interagency, inter-government, international, and the business community. This manual provides guidelines to establish policy for the management of NASA aircraft resources, aircraft operations, and related matters. This policy is an integral part of and must be followed when establishing field installation policy and procedures covering the management of NASA aircraft operations. Each operating location will develop appropriate local procedures that conform with the requirements of this handbook. This manual should be used in conjunction with other governing instructions, handbooks, and manuals. Unspecified Center...

This is a 67 page digital PDF copy of the mission manual for Apollo 12 that successfully landed on the moon and conducted Lunar surface experiments. This manual was used for the planning of the entire mission. Starting with launch preparations, countdown to lift off, experiments on the lunar surface and re-entry back into Earths atmosphere. This is an awesome inside look at the Apollo 12 mission and what was involved. There is a distribution list at the end of the manual to see the names of all NASA hero's involved. Enjoy!!
