Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect armchair Apollo reading, 9 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Lunar Rover Manual: An Insight into the Technology, History, Development and Role of NASA's Unique Apollo Lunar Roving Vehicle (Owners Workshop Manual) (Hardcover)
Wow, this is excellent! Compared to the lander manual, this is more focussed on systems and how things actually work. Perhaps that's because the rover was so much more mechanical than the lander? but it's fascinating how it mixes school level physics which the harsh limits the team faced, they ended up with some really cool integration and KISS style solutions, as well as the usual extra high tech stuff.

Starts with a nice history of lunar rover design previous to the apollo programme, which makes clear just how much work had already been done before the rover as we know it was created in a super short period of time.

Written in a clear style - even the technical parts are well written - along with some lovely photos and NASA handbook pages. This is an excellent book that in some ways is hidden by the Haynes branding (which has gotten a bit silly sometimes with subject matter). fab
