Sinopsis: This incredible electronic book on DVD-ROM provides the ULTIMATE in comprehensive coverage of Shuttle astronaut training. It combines the contents of five of our best CD-ROM titles! No serious student of the Shuttle should be without these exclusive reproductions of NASA Shuttle documents. Here’s what is included:
NASA ASTRONAUT TRAINING MANUALS – These are the official NASA astronaut training manuals; they comprise a major part of the formal flight crew training process and are used by flight controllers as well. The 91 internal NASA manuals are from the Mission Operations Directorate (Space Flight Training Division branch) at NASA's Johnson Space Center. The manuals and workbooks are extremely detailed and comprehensive, and are designed for self-study. Each is heavily illustrated with vivid line drawings, engineering schematics, and other charts and figures. A full listing of all acronyms and abbreviations used in the text is included. They provide a superb way to learn about Shuttle systems, hardware, and operational procedures. Special emphasis on crew interaction with the displays, controls, and hardware is included. Every major and minor system is covered in a dedicated manual - from the main engines and robot arm to the APU/hydraulic system and navigation aids.
NASA DOCUMENTS - Flight Checklists, Handbooks, Launch Commit Criteria, Internal Operational Books – This is an amazing collection of over 25,000 pages of NASA documents about the Space Shuttle. (That's the equivalent of nearly 300 pounds of standard office paper!) Many of the internal NASA documents in the collection have been made available for the first time by World Spaceflight News. Among the 100 documents in the WSN collection: 23 Flight Data File Crew Checklists (everything from the Ascent Checklist to the Entry Checklist); ten JSC Flight Procedures Handbooks (which provide the rationale for the procedures used during flight and included in the FDF); fifteen Critical Items List, Hazard Analysis, and safety documents; four of the major volumes of the Shuttle Countdown; the complete Launch Commit Criteria (LCC); All-flights Operational Flight Rules; Shuttle Operational Data Book; ten SFOC JSC Handbooks and Manuals; and the recently issued KSC hurricane threat assessment report which provides unique information about KSC shuttle facilities.. This collection is an unbelievable treasure-trove of facts and figures about the Shuttle!
This DVD-ROM has over 50,000 pages reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software and Reader software is included. There is no other reference that is as fast, convenient, comprehensive, and portable! Our discs are privately-compiled collections of official public domain U.S. government files and documents - they are not produced by the federal government. They are designed to provide a convenient user-friendly reference work, utilizing the benefits of the Acrobat format to uniformly present thousands of pages that can be rapidly reviewed or printed without untold hours of tedious searching and downloading. This book-on-a-disc makes a superb reference work and educational tool.
This DVD-ROM disc is for use in a computer DVD drive. The files can be accessed from the File Explorer in the same way that you open files from a CD-ROM disc; the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM formats are functionally the same, but the DVD has more than six times greater storage capacity. Of course, this disc cannot be "played" in a DVD player connected to a television set. It contains computer-formatted data, not video.
