9780141041834: A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts (Penguin Magnum Collection)

The race to the moon was won spectacularly by Apollo 11 on 20 July 1969. When astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took their 'giant step' across a ghostly lunar landscape, they were watched by some 600 million people on Earth 250,000 miles away.

'A Man on the Moon' is the definitive account of the heroic Apollo programme: from the tragedy of the fire in Apollo 1 during a simulated launch, through the euphoria of the first moonwalk, to the discoveries made by the first scientist in space aboard Apollo 17. Drawing on hundreds of hours of in-depth interviews with the astronauts and team, this is the story of the twentieth century's greatest human achievement, minute-by-minute, in the words of those who were there.

Note : The book contains 688 pages , but only pages 1 - 670 are numbered. The other 18 pages are images and are not numbered.

Chaikin's superb book demonstrates how' Sunday Times 'A superb account ... Apollo may be the only achievement by which our age is remembered a thousand years from now' - Arthur C. Clarke
