Read the stories of early space exploration from the original NASA transcripts. Now open to the public in a searchable, linkable format.
Not only is the spacelog searchable and linkable, it is tweetable. AND, and, they’ve interspersed pictures (taken by the Apollo 13 crew and others) to the time in the log in which they were taken (like this). This is incredible.
I love it. They link to some of the best parts, but I have to share my own.
First, the requisite quote:
Jack Swigert: I believe we’ve had a problem here.
Jim Lovell: Houston, we’ve had a problem.
Second, my favorite (watch the movie):
Houston, Capcom: Aquarius; Houston. We’ve got you both on VOX.
Lastly, a great picture and quote:
I can’t say how much that I enjoy reading through this. Being able to relive history, in the first person, is an amazing experience. I might be a nerd, but I love this stuff.
