There are some seriously cool pictures on this site. I hope the somewhat spartan site design isn't turning people off.

Some of the photos that are available are super hi-rez scans, and they're copyright-free. I've gotten 8x10 prints made at ofoto that are really nice.

I just watched the HBO series "From The Earth To The Moon" on DVD. Great series if you're like me and this stuff is like porn to you.

I find the journals fascinating. Almost everything was planned to the T. They couldn't fart without running down a checklist and talking to Houston.

more apollo goodies are available from spacecraft films. they have the complete, official downloads of all audio/video from various apollo missions. toss in clips from training and press days, and it adds up to some pretty darn cool packages. i especially enjoyed watching the downloads after seeing the HBO series.

Wonderful link, plep, wonderful.

NASA publishes a lot of books on line, including

Chariots for Apollo:A History of Manned Lunar Spacecraft

Apollo Press Kits (very cool stuff!)

Project Apollo Drawings and Technical Diagrams

Topical index of all NASA history pubs is here.

Also see David Portree's Romance to Reality website for many, many Apollos planed and lost, and other proposals of what might have been ...

And don't forget the various plans for the 'Soviet Apollo'.

Wow... I'm gonna take a day off and just click on all those images. What a great resource. Thanks!

For some reason, I couldn't resist commenting on this particular thread. Color me eponymous!
