Grabois, M. (Jan. 2009). "Apollo Lessons Learned Project". In 2008, NBC/Universal was looking into the possibility of including some of the presentations from our Apollo Lessons Learned project on its then-upcoming "Apollo 13" Blu-ray (which for various reasons ended up not happening). But NASA had to put them on the NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS), stripped of author and contact info, in order for NBCU to be able to obtain them. The listed author of all these Apollo documents is the person who was the liaison between NASA and NBCU. Click the above link for all of them, these are the ones I did.
Grabois, M. (Feb. 1995) "Countdown!", an account I wrote in about what it's like to work on console in Mission Control during a space shuttle launch.
