Moon Mission: The Epic 400-Year Journey to Apollo 11

<em>Moon Mission</em> is a unique look at the successful – though nearly disastrous – Apollo 11 moon landing. With a riveting narrative told from the astronauts’ points of view, readers get to relive every step of Apollo 11’s 1969 mission – from ignition to moon walk to splashdown – including the nail-biting (and relatively unknown) crucial moments when it came close to failure. <em>Moon Mission</em> also links each step to the innovations and discoveries from the past four centuries that made it possible. A fascinating new perspective on an epic journey and how STEM set it in motion.
