Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"More than 250 photographs and technical illustrations complement the authoritative text, giving insight into this marvel of space-age technology."

"This volume is definitely a “must have” for anybody interested in the Shuttle program or seriously building a model of one of these legendary machines. Outstanding!"


"While the Shuttles will no-doubt end up in museums, you will never see them in their complete settings ever again and titles like this will be very useful in looking back into the history and higher-level details of this unique spacecraft. This is a nicely written title with great photography that will interest space enthusiasts as well as modelers who are looking for some good views in and around the Space Shuttle. Definitely recommended!"

Universe Today.com
"With modern imagery and text reflective of the program’s long history, [NASA Space Shuttle Owners' Workshop Manual] encapsulates all of the accomplishments that the vehicle’s design allowed to become a reality...well worth the price."

Excellente série de livres techniques. Très bien illustré et plutôt complète. C'est un vrai plaisir pour un public assez large.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Shuttle Overview with Excellent Pictures 25 avril 2011
Par Nohr F. Tillman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Very nicely assembled overview of the Shuttle program with lots of facts and figures. It's written in such a manner that anyone could learn the various complex systems of the shuttle, yet offers plenty enough for the technical mind to chew on. By far, this is one of the best color collections of pictures of the Shuttle, Launch Vehicle and surrounding launch complex that I have seen to date.

As with the Haynes Saturn V/Apollo manual, it encompasses the program from top to bottom, nicely touching on everything. Also, as with the other manual, there are so many details not included that just can't all be stuffed into one book that would fit on a bookshelf. It is not a disappointing lack of information at all, though.

The only missing, which I really enjoyed in the Saturn V/Apollo manual, is line-art drawings of the control panels. There are many nice pictures of the interior of the Shuttle, but the line-art is just cleaner to look at from a technical aspect. Perhaps the author couldn't include any because of the different configurations the control panels have had over the various iterations of Shuttle cockpits. It also could be an impossibility since the latest generation glass-panel cockpit is color-screen driven and re-configurable during flight!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I can't stop looking at it 12 juillet 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
There's something here for both hard-core geeks and mildly interested afficianados. In one section, you learn about the history of the program, and see all the early concepts of the shuttle. Not a technical explanation, sure -- but very interesting nonetheless. If you're not geeked out by that, never fear -- turn the page and you get an in-depth explanation on how the main engines work. Particularly interesting to me was the breakdown of the countdown to launch. Learn each phase of the launch and what happens as things progress towards liftoff. Plus to top it all off, you get hundreds of pretty pictures of all the internal workings of the shuttle. The program is almost over -- if you're reading this, just buy the book, you won't regret it.

P.S. It's hardcover! I didn't notice that until I received it, what a great surprise!
1.0 étoiles sur 5 Its fine as a general history book on the shuttle 16 avril 2017

Its fine as a general history book on the shuttle. Buy why is it a Haynes manual, there is virtually no technical details on anything. The much older book, Space Shuttle Operators Manual is much better in that regard, but is from before the glass cockpit redesign.

While it is a well-balanced overview of all of the Shuttle's various systems, other similar books have been published previously and this one contains nothing "better" that they do. If you do currently own a "Space Shuttle for Dummies" book, this is a good pick. However, if you are looking for a more in-depth, detailed look at Shuttle systems, you will be disappointed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you are a fascinated by space and engineering, this is for you 21 octobre 2011
Par P. Shelley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you are fascinated by space and engineering, this book is for you. The insider information on the space shuttle design, the program and explanations of the challenges encountered, make this book hard to put down. Sometimes I became so fascinated by what I was reading I wanted more detail than the book offered, but there is still a wealth of knowledge and it is written well. The graphics are not sufficiently detailed or of poor quality in some cases. Overall a wonderful addition to the library.
