Welcome to this 1 October 2020 release of the Apollo 14 Flight Journal, part of the Apollo Flight Journal series.
Like its companion, the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal (ALSJ), it is intended to be a resource for all those interested in the Apollo program, whether in a passing or scholarly capacity. As per the sharing of work between these two projects, the surface portion of the mission is depicted over on ALSJ.
This journal covers the flight of Apollo 14 from launch to splashdown. As a
living document, it will continue to grow and evolve.
Journals for other Apollo flights are available at the AFJ Portal.
