Apollo by the Numbers: A Statistical Reference
by Richard W. Orloff
Publisher: NASA History Division 2004
Number of pages: 348
With the passage of time and the subsequent opening of archives on both sides of the space race, there are opportunities not present before to reconsider Project Apollo anew. This new book in the NASA History Series seeks to draw out the statistical information about each of the flights that have been long buried in numerous technical memoranda and historical studies. It seeks to recount the missions, measuring results against the expectations for them.

This book presents the modern science of Aerodynamics and its immediate application to aircraft. The present edition is enlarged to provide an introduction to the mathematical and experimental study of compressible flow, subsonic and supersonic.
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.

Written as a basic guide on the uses and characteristics of space systems, this book discusses astronautics and its applications, technology in the space environment, rocket vehicles, propulsion systems, propellants, internal power sources, etc.
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.
