Synopsis: CD-ROM and Book. October 1968 and the US manned space program was about to be reborn. An entirely new space vehicle awaited its pilots at Pad 34. After 21 months the three-man Apollo space capsule had undergone a transformation. Over 1300 modifications had been made to the spacecraft following the tragic fire which had claimed the lives of the Apollo I crew. Now the three men who had been back-up crew for that ill-fated mission were faced with the task of flying an all-new space vehicle. It was to be the first manned flight of America's lunar spacecraft and it was to be the first manned launch of Wernher von Braun's giant Saturn lB rocket. The prestigious task of commanding the first Apollo mission was given to Captain Walter M Schirra, a veteran of America's Gemini and Mercury programs. Accompanying him were Command Module Pilot, Major Donn Eisele, and physicist-civilian, Walter Cunningham - both were taking their first ride into space. Schirra, Eisele and Cunningham would be the first men to ride on a Saturn rocket and were then expected to fly the new spacecraft for the full length of a lunar mission. Every single onboard system would have to be tested and studied.

Apollo 7 would be the longest first flight of any spacecraft or aircraft in the history of aviation. Incredibly, within nine months of this first manned Apollo mission, two Americans would fly the hardware to the Sea Of Tranquillity.

Review: Another entry in Robert Godwin's detail-packed, armchair astronaut NASA Reports series, the Apollo 7 compilation includes all the tech-heavy goodies that earlier instalments featured: the official press kit, pre- and post-mission reports, the technical debriefing, dozens of diagrams and colour photos, and even a CD-ROM packed with astronaut interviews, thundering launch footage, and over 500 70mm pictures taken by the flight crew.

Godwin's books are so addictive because they're the real deal--essentially unedited, unaltered artifacts from some of NASA's most hair-raising missions. And while Apollo 7 might not have matched Apollo 11 or 13 for sheer drama, the crew of Wally Schirra, Walt Cunningham, and Donn Eisele had a lot on its hands. It was what would be the longest first flight of any craft in aviation history, the first successful manned launch of Wernher von Braun's Saturn IB rocket, and the first successful restart of the service module's hypergolic-propelled motor after a "cold soak" in space.

Because there's no-one to hold your hand through the details, the Godwin books can be daunting to casual readers. But that same rawness makes this report (like its predecessors) often very funny, fascinating, and revealing, whether it's complaints about head colds and congestion in the post-mission report, or just Wally Schirra waxing space-cowboy in the debriefing ("...I've had a harder landings on a carrier landing. If you ever watch a guy land in a Demon, for example, his head goes bla-lah-lah lah-lah-lah as he rolls out on the flight deck. It's that bad.") --Paul Hughes
