Field Notes Limited Edition - Three Missions
Fifty years ago, America was in the midst of a historic quest to land a man on the Moon. The Field Notes 39th Quarterly Release is the "Three Missions Edition", which celebrates the programs that got us there.
Each 3-Pack consists of three Memo Books, one each for the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs. These books are full of facts and figures. They feature dramatic photographs of iconic moments from those missions on the covers, printed in full process color, plus an “Orbital Silver” metallic ink and an aqueous coating. The insides are graph paper with the rules printed in an extremely light “Firmament Gray” ink. Those pages will be helpful in planning a summer picnic or calculating optimal orbital trajectories and eccentricities.
Additionally, you’ll notice these 3-Packs come in a slightly larger package than usual. That's because each pack also contains three "Punch-Out and Assemble" Mission-Specific Crew Capsule Models, for fun and education.
We hope you enjoy this edition as much as we, here at Field Notes Mission Control, enjoyed making them. As we researched these books, we were constantly and dramatically reminded of the truly monumental achievements of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo scientists, support and crew members. Our thanks goes out to them and also the current staff at NASA and the JPL. Let’s go back to the moon, and beyond!
