Inside the Lunar lander.

The Lunar Module was the first manned spacecraft specifically built to deliver men to the Moon.

This two-stage spacecraft was built by the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation to ferry two astronauts and scientific equipment to the surface of the Moon. The 6.7-metre (22-foot) tall craft had an aluminium frame with titanium fittings and was covered with layers of aluminised Kapton and aluminised Mylar to provide thermal protection against micrometeoroids.

The Apollo Command Module carried it into lunar orbit, and two of the three crew transferred to it and used the descent engine to land on the Moon. After deploying scientific

Become a Dr.Rex power-user

The Dr.Rex is one of Reason’s unsung heroes, great for everything from backing to experimentation. Hollin Jones slices it up…

The Props have created a number of important technologies that many of us take for granted — and without which our lives would almost certainly be more fiddly. There’s ReWire, of course, the invisible protocol for streaming audio and MIDI between Reason and other DAWs, and also the REX format. ReCycle was actually one of the company’s first major software releases — a standalone application for analysing and slicing up audio loops and saving them in a format that had

8W+8W Stereo Amplifier Module

An endless variety of stereo amplifiers arc available in the market. But the prices of good quality amplifiers, equipped with graphic equalisers etc, are not within the reach of all audio enthusiasts. The cheaper varieties are generally based on discrete transistors, and suffer from drawbacks such as uncontrolled hum, ineffective tone controls, poor bass response, thermal runaway etc. The use of interstage transformers in such circuits reduces their versatility.

This article describes the functional and constructional details of a compact and complete solid-state stereo amplifier module, which is capable of providing an output of over 8 watts into each channel.
