Inside the Lunar Rover

The Geek’s Guide to Space

This comprehensive guide gives insight into the first vehicle ever built to be driven on the surface of another body – the Apollo mission's lunar module. Prefaced by a foreword by the first Apollo astronaut to drive the lunar lander, this title is both a mechanical guide with illustrations and technical drawings and a fascinating narrative of engineering ingenuity and human triumph. It draws on NASA's rich photographic archive and the complete transcripts of the crews' reaction to driving across the moon. With its blend of engineering principles and detailed images, this informative guide will engage space geeks and novices alike.
