Description
Bill Mellberg turns his story-telling skills to the tale of NASA's triumphant effort to place an American on the Moon. From the failed launches following the Soviet Sputnik to Neil Armstrong's historic steps in 1969, readers are regaled with concise descriptions and photos of the men and machines which made "Moonwalk" a household term. Mellberg tells the story of what is possibly mankind's greatest engineering achievement in everyday language accessible both to everyday folk and technophiles. With a foreword by Harrison H. Schmitt, Apollo 17 astronaut. Includes over 100 photos of the lunar program's exploits on earth, in space, and on the Moon.
