COMMENTS ON Apollo’s Legacy (Launius)
pg. 35 typo: “…Senior [White]…” should be “…Senior Pilot [White]…”
pg. 27 The upper stages for the Saturn I and IB were the S-IV and S-IVB, respectively, not the Centaur as stated. In the Apollo era, the Centaur was usually launched on the Atlas.
pg. 30 No mention is made that one J-2 engine was also used on the S-IVB third stage.
pg. 33 The Apollo SM did not have a retrorocket package as stated.
pg. 33 The Launch Escape System was jettisoned shortly after 2nd stsge ignition, not after achieving orbit as stated.
pg. 33 Text implies the S-IVB stage failed; it worked fine for the first burn to put it into orbit; it was only the second burn that failed.
pg. 33 The SM was jettisoned prior to re-entry, not “upon” re-entry.
pg. 35 The Apollo 1 spacecraft during the test was pressurized at a much higher pressure than “spaceflight pressure”. Pressure in flight was around 5 psi of pure oxygen; the test pressure before the fire was above atmospheric.
pg. xii Aldrin was calling out altitude and descent rate, not range.
pg. 36 The fire board’s recommendation for a less oxygen-rich environment was only implemented for ground tests and launch; the cabin atmosphere in flight slowly reverted to 100% oxygen.
pg. 37 The interval between the board’s recommendations and the launch of Apollo 7 was more like 1.5 years.
pg. 39 The blockhouse for Pad 34 was on Cape Kennedy AF Station, not the Kennedy Space Center.
pg. 43 The LM ascent stage used hypergolic liquid propellants, not a solid motor as stated.
pg. 43 No Saturn V launched in January 1968 as stated. The LM test flight referred to was launched on a smaller Saturn IB.
pg. 64 Shepard did not make a hole in one on the moon as stated.
pg. 65 Armstrong did not use the retro rockets on Gemini 8 to regain control; he used the smaller thrusters of the re-entry control system.
pg. 65 Armstrong was not the first to land on the moon; Aldrin landed at the same time. Armstrong was the first to walk on the moon.
pg. 114 The original orientation of the Earthrise photo was 90 deg CCW from what is shown.
pg. 152 There was no correlation between Launch Umbilical Towers and pads as implied; any LUT could go to either pad.
pg. 153 Guenter Wendt was not on Apollo 1; but the fire was the reason he was hired back by Rockwell.
pg. 154 During Apollo, the “V” in VAB was “Vehicle”, not “Vertical”
pg. 154 “VAB” was not an acronym; it was always pronounced “vee ay bee”, never “vabb”
The quotes on the page before the Contents page are misleading; Armstrong’s statement was made about 24 hours after the exchange between Aldrin and Collins.

Some day, I think I’d really enjoy reading a lengthy discussion from you of Mary Chestnut’s A DIARY FROM DIXIE. I read it in grade school, some fifty years back, and it still pops up in my memory whenever Civil War history gets some play.

Reblogged this on When We Were Apollo and commented:
A wonderful opportunity to discuss and promote an area of history that hasn’t been given nearly as much attention as it deserves. Looking forward to reading these papers!
