I am somewhat an expert in the history of the US manned space programme, with particular emphasis on the Apollo programme. I have some knowledge of the Soviet manned space programme though do not claim to be an expert in the field. I welcome questions.

Thanks!

Evan

Fascinating article about some of the items that Neil Armstrong kept after the Apollo 11 mission. Most every astronaut kept souvenirs of some type or another, normally equipment that was no longer required (though there have been legal battles regarding the ownership status of such items).

This lady is attempting to recreate - in exact detail - the DSKY (display / keyboard) used on Apollo missions. This video log is long (about 50 mins) and very detailed but if you are a student of Apollo, it is well worth the time.
