Apollo Flight Mission Rule Documents (from JSC) are easy to find on the internet, but the Launch Mission Rule Documents (from KSC) - not so much.

I found a couple paper copies for sale, but that's not what I want.

Are there any pdfs of these documents available for download? (I want one from a crewed Apollo mission.)

    $\begingroup$ @StarMan: I'm not convinced of such an argument. The guidance computer source code is available on-line, yet I'd be willing to pay big bucks for an original printout. (Even more if it was autographed by Margaret Hamilton.) $\endgroup$ – DrSheldon Jul 19 '19 at 20:25

    $\begingroup$ @DrSheldon The FMRDs reference the LMRDs. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Jul 19 '19 at 21:33

    $\begingroup$ I sent a request to the STI for document 630-23-0002 (Apollo/Saturn Launch Mission Rules Handbook), so we'll see what comes of it $\endgroup$ – Ash Pera Jul 19 '19 at 22:36

    $\begingroup$ @AshPera Let's hope the Launch Mission Rules Handbook is not a document that tells you how to work with the LMRD, but I fear it might be. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Jul 19 '19 at 22:45
