Summary
"On July 23, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin stepped from their spacecraft onto the alien soil of the Moon--Earth's sister world. Using archival images and explanatory text, this riveting title guides the reader through NASA's Apollo space program, including the tragic deaths of an entire flight crew and Apollo's ultimate triumph--the first lunar landing in 1969. Maps of the moon show where Apollo 11's lunar lander Eagle landed and the route taken by the Soviet robot lander Lunokhod 1 in 1970."--
