Hello All - I am very pleased to announce that at AstroCon 2004's USS Hornet Banquet event Don Blair, the "radio voice of Apollo 11," will be signing copies of his newly published book Splashdown--NASA and the Navy. This to be just-released book (during AstroCon and the Hornet's Splashdown event) details all Navy and Marine units involved in the 31 manned spacecraft recoveries. The USS Hornet is heavily featured, including the cover artwork.
The book will sell for around $39.95. Splashdown--NASA
and the Navy will be 9 x 12 (12 inches long--landscape mode), 70 pound
glossy enamel pages, color on every page in some manner, and somewhere
between 176 and 192 pages and 200 to 240 photos. For those who know
about binding, this will be Smyth sewn, rounded and backed, head and
foot bands. Should be simply spectacular!
