Summary
This approach to the story behind Apollo 11's successful--but nearly disastrous--1969 moon landing ties the preceding four centuries of science, technology, engineering, and math to the mission and the first steps on the moon with the art of storytelling. Structured in 11 episodes, the narrative takes us from pre-ignition to the moonwalk to splashdown"--
