    These two books (Vols 1 and 2 of APOLLO 11 - The NASA Mission Reports) are very interesting sources for those who want to know what the crew of Apollo 11 (CDR Neil Armstrong, LMP Edwin Aldrin, CMP Michael Collins) exactly did during Launch, TLC (Trans Lunar Coast), LEVA (Lunar Extra Vehicular Activity), TEC (Trans Earth Coast), and Re-Entry / Splash Down

    Now... why all of this?
    In 1969 I was a kid age 5 when Apollo 11 was hot topic all over the world. In Flanders-Belgium it was, say, something like 3:00 to 4:00 when Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin explored Tranquillity Base. And there I was, between my parents in their bed, watching our black-and-white TV, to see mankind's very first exploration of earth's natural satellite. Today, I still try to comprehend what happened during that hot summer's month of July 69. Searching and investigating the thousands of photographs from NASA and from other sources is my own way to remember this epic journey to another celestial body.

    These two books (Vols 1 and 2 of APOLLO 11 - The NASA Mission Reports) are very interesting sources for those who want to know what the crew of Apollo 11 (CDR Neil Armstrong, LMP Edwin Aldrin, CMP Michael Collins) exactly did during Launch, TLC (Trans Lunar Coast), LEVA (Lunar Extra Vehicular Activity), TEC (Trans Earth Coast), and Re-Entry / Splash Down
    In this page, a (huge) list of NASA's ID-numbers of photographs should appear here, because I want to know if each one of the photographs printed in both Volume 1 and Volume 2 is somewhere online. I guess most of those photographs are indeed online in Kipp Teague's PROJECT APOLLO ARCHIVE or in Eric M. Jones's APOLLO LUNAR SURFACE JOURNAL, or perhaps in the galleries of JSC (Johnson Space Center).
    We shall see...
    Wish me good luck!
