Jun 8 2009It's About Time: Haynes Manual For Apollo 11

apollo manual.jpg

This is the $29 Haynes Owners' Workshop Manual for all the vehicles and equipment used during the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. I'm still gonna pick up a copy, despite deciding to build my own rocketship for scratch (I'm hoping for pointers on seducing moon-women).

On 20 July 1969, US astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. This is the story of the Apollo 11 mission and the 'space hardware' that made it all possible. This manual looks at the evolution and design of the mighty Saturn V rocket, the Command and Service Modules, and the Lunar Module. It describes the space suits worn by the crew and their special life support and communications systems.

There you have it, everything you need to know about how to fly a mission to the moon 40 years ago. Of course, things have changed since then. Namely, US women now have the right to vote. Yeah, and we haven't sent anyone else to the moon in 37 years. Coincidence, or should women not be allowed to drive? You decide.

This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactyl like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max shot himself to the moon in a spaceship constructed like a bullet, shot out of a giant gun. The ship became lodged in the cheesy surface of the moon, and max had plenty to eat there, although it smelled like Baja's farts.

The GW and I are flying off to Mars.......

nom nom nom


I want the program they used in the hit 80s movie 'The Explorers' that made the bubble to take a tilt-a-whirl into space. That way I could watch aliens re-enact scenes from more 80s movies proving once and for all, aliens look funny


Where is the Haynes for the Akira Bike??

Gosh... some day I wanna build my own.

Do you hear that Kanneda?

Great, now I can finally get the info I need to fix my LEM. I got it used and well a lot of the wiring was fried and I'm gonna bet that single owner speech he gave me was total BS.

I think a manual for Apollo 13 would have been more useful.

This will come useful for my project... hehehe

By the way, I bet you didnt knew the first one in the Moon was a Black astronaut:


true geek stuff here! :)

Now its time to go score some alien puntang...

Don't they do one for the Soyuz? Bah, damn import models, you can never get spare parts either...


I bet the Apollo 13 crew wishes they had brought that along.

Must See!!!



I loved this book! Mine is a little ruined though because I thought it was a coloring book at first......

Who wants a trip to the moon? Let's start building!
