Skylab 3: NASA Mission Reports - Paperback – By Dwight Steven-Boniecki


Discover everything from the minutiae of complex experiments to the human face of some of the earliest true space residents. Once again the enormous Skylab workshop would provide them with a home.

With the successful repair of the Skylab workshop by Pete Conrad’s Skylab 2 crew the stage was now set for his fellow Apollo 12 moon walker Alan Bean to lead a full scientific mission to the giant space station. Bean was to be accompanied by two of the next generation of astronauts, Owen Garriott and Jack Lousma. The crew were launched on a Saturn IB on 28 July 1973 for a mission which would last for just short of two months. This would be by far the longest duration mission ever attempted by the United States. Having secured the station and completed the repairs begun by Conrad’s crew, Bean, Lousma and Garriott conducted an intensive series of experiments on themselves and on behalf of students back on Earth. For an even better understanding, the book also comes with a special DVD.
