David Woods
How Apollo flew to the Moon
Nearly half a century ago, 24 men travelled to the Moon and 12 landed on its surface. David Woods describes the techniques that were employed to get them across the vast distance between Earth and the Moon, land on its dusty terrain and safely return, a journey no one has made for 43 years.
There will be the opportunity to purchase and have signed copies of Mr Woods' book.
David Woods worked until recently for BBC Scotland. In 1997, he received a Special Service Award from NASA for making NASA's history available on the web. He is one of the authors of the Haynes Lunar Rover manual and editor of NASA's Apollo Flight Journal.
