If you’re interested in technical aspects of the Apollo mission, AIAA has put together 50 journal and technical papers (for 50 years) about the mission.

The papers are available for free and represent a range of technical topics, time periods, and historical perspectives, including pre-Apollo work and events, ground-support development, communication, landing-on-Earth challenges, flight simulations for astronauts, supporting human flight, launch-vehicle design, flight-control development, orbital dynamics, reentry flight dynamics, science, and historical perspectives. 

Next week AIAA also plans to post some memories of people directly involved in Apollo or who play a significant role in today’s space missions and were influenced by Apollo. For more information about Apollo-related information at AIAA, please visit:
