It was, he writes, an aerospace engineers dream job of the century. Kellys account begins with the imaginative process of sketching solutions to a host of technical challenges with an emphasis on safety, reliability, and maintainability. He catalogs numerous test failures, including propulsion-system leaks, ascent-engine instability, stress corrosion of the aluminum alloy parts, and battery problems, as well as their fixes under the ever-present constraints of budget and schedule. He also recaptures the exhilaration of hearing Apollo 11s Neil Armstrong report that The Eagle has landed, and the pride of having inadvertently provided a vital lifeboat for the crew of the disabled Apollo 13.
