The entire book only contains one NASA produced report, the crew debriefing. The report contains the crew comments and feelings about various parts of the mission and generally avoids the technical language that many of the NASA documents include. The crew debrief contains crew comments from the suiting up phase to the landing, plus comments about the training (did it or did not help the crew). There are many sections that provide a thorough crew description about the problems, the flight to the moon, the moon walk (or EVA), and the lunar science conducted from orbit. As one would expect, most of the debriefing is focused on the moon landing and the first moon walk, and as a result, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong do most of the talking. I always find the crew debriefing quite enjoyable, because it is the closest thing to being there.Read more ›
