Overview

Continuing the popular Haynes Owners' Workshop Manual space series, which currently comprises Apollo 11 Manual and NASA Space Shuttle Manual, this unique book provides an insight into the only car ever built to be driven on the surface of another world. With a Foreword by the first Apollo astronaut to drive it on the Moon, Dave Scott, and published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of mankind’s final drive on the Moon in December 2012. The book is part mechanical guide, illustrated with many of the technical drawings from the time, and part narrative-driven story of engineering ingenuity and human triumph. It draws on the rich NASA photographic archive and the complete transcripts of the crews' reaction to driving across the Moon, which the authors have an un-paralleled knowledge and experience of working with.

    Even better than the Apollo 11 Manual.

    As a long-time "gear head", I'm familiar with the Haynes "owners' workshop manuals" that help you through repairing your car or bike. These "manuals" (the Apollo 11 and Lunar Rover books)are different in that it's obvious that there would be no purpose in telling you how to tear apart and rebuild a vehicle that had only 4 or 5 versions built but they still have a focus on the technical side of the Apollo lunar rovers that I enjoy. The book give lots of details on the history, development, problems and troubles and the general degree of difficulty that was involved in building a car that could be carried to the Moon and then how those vehicles were used once they got there. Don't get me wrong, the human stories behind the Apollo missions are every bit as important as the technical stuff, but if you want to learn how a 2-seater vehicle was built that folded into a tiny package and weighed less than 400 pounds, while carrying 2 astronauts and hundreds of pounds of rocks for 3 full days, this book will tell you.
