Book Description

Sept. 2 2011
second edition This book is a collective effort on the part of many of the NASA flight controllers who "manned" the front row of consoles in Mission Control during the preeminent days of America's Manned Spaceflight Program. These controllers were the singular group in Mission Control Houston that was formed to work as a team. They were known as The TRENCH. In that same team spirit, this book about them and by them has been a collective endeavor. They have contributed their own mini autobiographies of life events that shaped their character and their roles and contributions that carried Man to the moon.

Great stories and info about the space missions and work Mission Control,
additionally supported by technical details.
For a long time space freak still new stuff and insight to the every day
life of the people involved in real space business.
5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable Nov. 9 2012
By David Clow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Glynn Lunney, Jerry Bostick, Steve Bale and their colleagues in Mission Control share their personal recollections of America's space program in this indispensable book. Thank God they got their stories into print, because regardless of how great the astronauts' memoirs are, they'd all be incomplete without the information captured in this book.
