by Sylvia Doughty Fries - NASA History Office
This is the story less of heroes than of a generation of engineers who made Apollo possible. It is thus the story of the men and women who stood where the shadow was deepest. Their story is told largely in their own words.
by Richard W. Orloff - NASA History Division
With the passage of time there are opportunities to reconsider Project Apollo anew. This book draws out the statistical information about each of the flights that have been long buried in numerous technical memoranda and historical studies.
by Leonard Bairstow - Longmans, Green
The work aims at the extraction of principles of flight from, and the illustration of the use of, detailed information on aeronautics now available from many sources. The subject of aerodynamics is almost wholly based on experiment.
by T.I. Ligum - NASA
This book presents the physical bases of practical high-speed aerodynamics, and the influence of air compressibility on the aerodynamic characteristics of wings and aircraft. Primary attention is turned to passenger jets.
