On the Oceans of Storms
David M. Harland
With its two moonwalks, deployment of a geophysical station and geological sampling, Apollo 12
did what many had hoped would be achieved by the first men to land on the Moon. It spectacularly demonstrated the precision landing capability required for the success of future lunar surface expolorations. Apollo 12 - On the Oceans of Storms
- contains over 30 pages of colour images, including high-resolution scans recently produced by NASA from the original Hasselblad film;
- covers the mission from its planning through to completion;
- includes conversations among the crew in the spacecraft that were not transmitted;
- is the definitive 'popular' account of this mission.
This is the first time in 40 years that the storyof the Apollo 12
mission to the Moon has been told in its entirety, using official documents, flight transcripts, and post-mission debriefing to recreate the drama.
