Where no man has gone before : a history of Apollo lunar exploration missions by William David Compton ( Book )
3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This clearly-written account traces the ways in which scientists with interests in the Moon and engineers concerned with landing people on the Earth's satellite resolved their differences of approach and carried out a mission that made major contributions to science and developed remarkable engineering achievements. Roughly half of the volume is devoted to preparations for the lunar landings, with the remainder of the book detailing the lunar explorations that followed Apollo 11, in which twelve astronauts visited the Moon and brought back lunar samples for scientists to analyze

Analysis of Apollo 8 : photography and visual observations by Manned Spacecraft Center (U.S.) ( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Includes photography and visual observations by the astronauts. Provides the lunar photography available from Apollo 8 and how the photograph can be obtained. ... "For the first time, good high-illumination photographs were taken from a spacecraft so that areas of different reflectivity could be delineated; in particular, rayed craters and mare areas. Apollo 8 far-side photography also includes the best terminator photography obtained from a spacecraft. Both the high-Sun and low-Sun vertical photographs show good detail of the area directly under the orbital track, and the oblique photographs reveal a mountain range that had not been previously identified."--p. 16
Ecological surveys from space : prepared for the Office of Space Science and Applications by United States ( Book )
2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A small sampling and condensation of numerous scientific and technical studies of new images and concepts of the Earth that men have acquired by venturing into space. It is intended mainly to call the attention of more specialists, such as geographers, agricultural engineers, foresters, geologists, hydrologists, oceanographers, and cartographers, to the potentialities of ecological surveys from orbiting satellites... The photographs reproduced here were taken from aircraft and the Gemini and Apollo vehicles."--p. ii
