Spacecraft - Mighty Saturns - Saturn 1B [DVD]
Spacecraft - Mighty Saturns - Saturn 1B [DVD]
Dvd ~ The Mighty Saturns
Offered by Get it in a Jiffy
Price: 7.40

4.0 out of 5 stars Great if you want multi-angle slow motion view of a launch, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great to have such archive footage available on DVD. As an apollo programme model rocket builder I wanted to have reference material for body detail on the rockets. Probably a poor purchase for someone who is not interested in every millisecond of the apollo launches, for for those of us who are - buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting more...., 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently had the opportunity to meet Al Worden who personalized a dedication and signature for me, so my opinion of this book and author may be biased :)

But that said, this is a very honest account of a very difficult time for the author, it's a clear account of the moon landing events and his fall from hero worship and more importantly how Al Worden is once again considered a hero.

He does not bloat the book with accounts of his business adventures after leaving the Apollo programme like some other authors. But if anything that is the only shortcoming of this book, I would love to have known more about how the author was received in the business world.

A wonderful account of a challenging adventure!


BELTON 8" Tablet Hard Case - Black Faux Leather Carrying Case
BELTON 8" Tablet Hard Case - Black Faux Leather Carrying Case

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money., 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently purchased an 8" tablet and found it terribly difficult to source a cover for it (even in the store where I purchased it) It seems that many manufactures are catering for the iPad mini but not providing the flexibility for other tablet devices.

I've been using this Belton case now with my tablet for about 3 months, and both Tablet and case as still as good as new. My tablet feels safe and secure. What more could you ask for? (Oh yes a good price point also)

4.0 out of 5 stars D-Day for Dad, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this book as a gift for my father - the fact that he immediately was drawn into the book was testament enough to me that it it was a good purchase.

We all have visions of the D-Day landing with troops jumping from the amphibious vehicles, but I was amazed to see the myriad of unique hardware which was designed to overcome some very specific challenges of preparing for and carrying out the landing.
