Scope and Contents
The training files contain a wide variety of materials used specifically in the astronaut training programs which led to the success of the Apollo missions. Neil Armstrong played a large role in designing both simulation training exercises and in the development of the Lunar Landing Research Vehicle (LLRV). The LLRV was a specialized training vehicle designed to train pilots how to fly and land the lunar module, and as such, presented a unique engineering problem to its development team; i.e. how to design a vehicle for non-aerodynamic flight while still constrained by earth'’s gravity.
