I stumbled across a great site today with about 200 pdf copies of NASA documents and manuals from Mercury through to ASTP. I've seen some of these before but never all gathered in one spot.

Enjoy!

Cheers,
Matt

Hi Dennis,

I just clicked the link and it opened fine for me, so I can guarantee you that the page is still there

Maybe try copying and pasting the link into your browser's address bar, or even typing it in manually? A slightly voodoo approach to your problem I'll admit but it's worked for me sometimes in the past.

Cheers,
Matt

Thank you for the info. It's still not working for me here at work (perhaps my boss has blocked my access!!) so I will make the attempt from home.
Again, my thanks,
Dennis

'Vintage PDF' is an oxymoron. :-)

Seriously, thanks for the tip. I had been to that page before, and found some wonderful things I have spent hours poring over. There is now a ton of stuff I had not seen before. But honey, they were free! :-)

Cheers,

Randy

Makes me want to go back to that part-time weekend job where I could print out anything I wanted and nobody cared !

That is a great link. I would really like to download all of the files but that would take weeks. I will download a few files and save them to a CD. Then I will be able to access them as I need them. Thanks for the information. Bill

Excellent information. Great web site. One of the documents was the log for the last week on Apollo 1. Gives you some names to put with the numbers. Kinda gives you an idea how many men were involved just on the spacecraft.
Haven't had time to look ar some of the others, Should prove interesting.
Thanks a lot.
