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.Revue de presse :

"More inside stories, more details, recollections, and feelings of all the men who traveled to the moon than any other account of the Apollo program."

Description du livre Paperback. Etat : Very Good. Illus. With Photos (illustrateur). The greatest adventure of the 20th century came with a deadline - Before this decade is out. John Kennedy's words in 1961 burned in the minds of the astronauts training to land on the moon. Through their eyes, revealing previously unknown personal details, Andrew Chaikin chronicles the Apollo missions from their disaster-plagued beginnings, through their spectacular climax to their premature end. From flamboyant prankster Pete Conrad to scientist Jack Schmitt, who had to prove he was made of the right stuff to go to the moon, memorable characters abound. With consummate ease, Chaikin makes technological details accessible to the lay person and gives each aspect of the moon voyage, from a Saturn V lift-off to the euphoria of a moon walk, a minute-by-minute feeling of excitment. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. N° de réf. du vendeur GOR002170002
