In this way the Workshop Manual brand line is maintained as a reference to the way machines are built and operated.

Dr. David Bakerworked with NASA on the Gemini, Apollo and Shuttle programmes between 1965 and 1990. He has written more than 100 books on space flight, aviation and military technology. In October 2017 he received the American Astronautical Society''s Frederick I. Ordway III award "for a sustained excellence in space coverage, through ...
