More FREE NASA Books

By Glenn A. Walsh
Reporting for SpaceWatchtower

 Last week, I reported on "NASA's Massive Free E-Book Collection":

Richard Spencer, Information Services Manager for the Library at NASA Headquarters in Washington has informed me of more free NASA E-Books, and also some free regular books in celebration of 50 years of NASA.  Here is the message he sent me:

By the way, let your readers know that the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate is also building a collection of free ebooks at http://www.aeronautics.nasa.gov/ebooks
Also, I oversee the Headquarters Information Center which distributes and sells the books to the public.  Currently, the History Program Office is celebrating 50 years of publishing books with a massive giveaway of many titles.  The price page (including which titles are available for free) is at: http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/hqlibrary/ic/ic2.htm. We’re distributing them for a $3.00 per book shipping/handling fee (or visitors can walk in for copies – although we will be closing to public access for 9 months beginning Aug 21st.)

  1. For some odd reason.. FF would not allow me to go to the site.. said that the certificate can't be trusted. Would appreciate some feedback or another link please.

    1. Yes, I originally had the same problem. However, I think true NASA web sites can be trusted. And, since this link was provided to me by a NASA librarian, I am sure that this is a true NASA web site.

      It seems your spam protection software is simply being overly cautious. Ignore the warning, in this one case, click on "I Understand the Risks," and add an "Exception" on your computer for this one web link only.

      I hope this advice helps.
