Lunar Orbiter Bugle (LO BUGL) October 27, 1966

"WELCOM FELLOW ORBITEERS

Thoughts of Mission B crowd out the memories of Mission A as we get back into the headset harness again and prepare ourselves for training and another successful mission. It's good to see so many of the "Old Pros" again and to recognize the high level of talent of many of our new team members. But even with all this talent Mission B doesn't look much like a picnic. Instead it looks like another challenge that will require our best efforts at all times."

Keith Cowing: it was a common habit to refer to the Lunar Orbiter missions as being "A", "B" etc. as well as "1", "2" or "I", "II".

25 August 1966 Lunar Orbiter Bugle: Waiting For Earthrise

Keith Cowing: We have obtained more than 160 pages of the "LO BUGL" i.e. The Lunar Orbiter Bugle. This internal newsetter was produced by NASA, JPL, and Boeing staff during 1966-1967 while the Lunar Orbiter missions were underway. These newsletters contained unofficial news, notes, gossip, jokes, and all of the other sorts of things that a NASA mission team shares with itself - but not necessarily with the public. These newsletters were published using mimeographs and some scanning wizardry will be required to make them all readable online. Stay tuned. Click on image to enlarge.
