Welcome to the Rocket Ranch!

The Nuts and Bolts of Apollo Processing and Launch Operations at Kennedy Space Center

Resources on this site, apollolaunchcontrol.com

This site serves as a companion to my books and research, specifically related to the technology and processes used at Kennedy Space Center during Apollo. The website will be significantly expanded throughout the coming year, so check back often.

The interactive format of a website gives me the opportunity to highlight some interesting things that you just can't show well in a book. On the other hand, a book allows you to be more descriptive narrative than you can in a website.

So, please enjoy the books and website together! Information is cross-referenced whenever possible. We will be expanding this website frequently with new information and photos.

My other website is www.apollo-saturn.com. It focuses on the people, teams, and organizations that assembled, tested, and launched the Apollo missions from Kennedy Space Center.

Our sister site showcases the men and women of Kennedy Space Center who helped make the Apollo program a success.
