NASA Saturn V 1967-1973 (Apollo 4 to Apollo 17 & Skylab)

Availability: Ready to download

Few launch vehicles are as iconic and distinctive as NASA's behemoth rocket, the Saturn V, and none left such a lasting impression on those who watched it ascend. Developed with the specific brief to send humans to the Moon, it pushed rocketry to new scales. Its greatest triumph is that it achieved its goal repeatedly with an enviable record of mission success. Haynes' Sat Few launch vehicles are as iconic and distinctive as NASA's behemoth rocket, the Saturn V, and none left such a lasting impression on those who watched it ascend. Developed with the specific brief to send humans to the Moon, it pushed rocketry to new scales. Its greatest triumph is that it achieved its goal repeatedly with an enviable record of mission success. Haynes' Saturn V Manual tells the story of this magnificent and hugely powerful machine. It explains how each of the vehicle's three stages worked; Boeing's S-IC first stage with a power output as great as the UK's peak electricity consumption, North American Aviation's S-II troubled second stage, Douglas's workhorse S-IVB third stage with its instrument unit brain - as much a spacecraft as a rocket. From the decision to build it to the operation of its engines' valves and pumps, this lavishly illustrated and deeply informative book offers a deeper appreciation of the amazing Saturn V.

    A fascinating insight into the conception, development, and operation of the Saturn V rocket. From the early days of the Redstone and Jupiter, all the way through the development of the brutal F-1 engine, the S-IC, S-II, and S-IVB stages, through to the Apollo missions and Skylab. This book goes into an amazing level of detail, and is a great read for anyone interested in space flight or engineering.

    This is a pretty deep technical discussion of the Saturn V rocket used in the Apollo missions of NASA. If you've always wanted to know how the piping in the F1-Engine worked, how the fuel on these rockets was stored and managed, and how the guidance system keeps track of the position of the rocket, this is the book for you. If you shudder in disgust when seeing a technical drawing, this is most definitely not for you. This is a pretty deep technical discussion of the Saturn V rocket used in the Apollo missions of NASA.

    This is THE book for the shade-tree mechanic of liquid fueled rocket motors. Whilst it's not for everyone, because who has cryogenic oxygen just laying about, it is an insightful look at the engineering that went into getting man to the moon. NASA and Rocketdyne built the most reliable liquid fueled engine ever designed. From someone who is an avowed "space nerd" this was SO much FUN, without being so over the top technical so that you'd be lost quickly. 1.6 million foot-pounds of thrust per engi This is THE book for the shade-tree mechanic of liquid fueled rocket motors.

YIKES!

    Not being a technically minded person but someone who can follow a logical thread, I found the amount of detail in this book and the way complicated processes were simply explained was perfect for me. Matter-of-fact but awe-inspiring, leavened with just the right dose of storytelling asides. Illustrations also excellent. A wonderful, outstanding book. Don't let the fact it is dressed as a Haynes manual put you off; the content is of the highest quality.

    Fascinating book on the engineering exploits to build the Saturn V. Lots of details but not overwhelming.
