THREE MISSIONS | Field Notes
39TH QUARTERLY EDITION
Fifty years ago, America̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_was in the midst of a historic quest to land a man on the Moon. Our 39th Quarterly Release, the̢̍?‰ۡó»‰ۡÌÝÌá‰ۡó»??Three Missions?æäÌÝÌÒ??‰ۡó»_? Edition, celebrates the programs that got us there.
Each 3-Pack consists of three Memo Books, one each for the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs. These books are full of facts and figures. They feature dramatic photographs of iconic moments from those missions on the covers, printed in full process̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_color, plus ?æäÌÝÌÒ??‰ۡó»‰ۡÌÝÌá‰ۡó»??Orbital Silver?æäÌÝÌÒ??‰ۡó»_? metallic ink and an aqueous coating. The insides are Finch Opaque̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_60#T white̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_graph paper with the rules̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_printed in an extremely light ?æäÌÝÌÒ??‰ۡó»‰ۡÌÝÌá‰ۡó»??Firmament Gray?æäÌÝÌÒ??‰ۡó»_??‰ۡó»‰ۡÌÝÌá_ink. Those pages will be helpful in planning a summer̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_picnic, or̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_calculating optimal orbital trajectories and eccentricities.̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_
SIMULATORS FOR̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_1:50-SCALE ASTRONAUTS
Additionally, youll notice these 3-Packs come in a slightly larger package than usual. Thats because each set̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_also contains three ?æäÌÝÌÒ??‰ۡó»‰ۡÌÝÌá‰ۡó»??Punch-Out and Assemble?æäÌÝÌÒ??‰ۡó»_? Mission-Specific Crew Capsule Models, for fun and education.
Now keep in mind that these models, when assembled following our overly-wordy instructions (download), will not survive reentry into the atmosphere, probably wont float after splashdown and are unlikely to earn you a ticker-tape parade. However, they have been tested in space and returned safely to earth. Really:
We hope you enjoy this edition as much as we, here at̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_Field Notes Mission Control,̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_enjoyed making them. As we researched these books, we were̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_constantly and dramatically̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_reminded̢̍‰ۡ?‰ۡÌÝÌá_of the truly monumental achievements of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo scientists, support and crew members. Our thanks goes out to them, and also the current staff at NASA and the JPL. Lets go back to the moon, and beyond!
