9780060873509: Destination Moon: The Apollo Missions in the Astronauts' Own Words

The Apollo space programme was the largest technical undertaking of all time and also the greatest adventure of the twentieth century. Travelling to the most forbidding environment known to man, twelve unique and courageous individuals stepped out of their tiny spaceships and onto another world. And then, as suddenly as it had blossomed, the lunar programme was gone. In three short years, nine missions headed to the moon and six landed men on its surface. They explored, they experimented, and then they came home. By 1972 it was over. NASA moved on to other activities. But the fascination with these journeys lives on. Destination Moon tells the significant, spectacular and intriguing story of the Apollo space programme through first-person accounts by the astronauts themselves - both their mission dialogue and retrospective reminiscences - explained and put into context with expert commentary by Rod Pyle. With more than 100 accompanying images, some rarely seen, Destination Moon is a whole new look at one of mankind's greatest achievements.
