Description - Taking Science to the Moon by Donald A. Beattie
How did science get aboard the Apollo rockets and what did scientists do with the space allotted to them? This book describes, from the perspective of NASA headquarters, the struggles that took place to include science payloads and lunar exploration as part of the Apollo programme. Donald A. Beattie - who served at NASA from 1963 to 1973 in several management positions and finally as programme manager, Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments - supplies a detailed, insider's view of the events leading up to the acceptance of science activities on all the Apollo missions.
