About the Book

On the 50th Anniversary of mankind's giant leap…

“I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.” declared President John F. Kennedy before Congress on May 25, 1961.

No nation had ever attempted such a grand undertaking. The cost would be vast. The dangers were unknown. The technology didn't exist. But on July 21, 1969 American astronaut Neil Armstrong, commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft, stepped on to the lunar surface. When the Apollo program ended in 1972, 12 men had walked on the moon.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first manned moon landing, Easton Press presents the illustrated history of the “space race” to the moon -- APOLLO: The Mission to Land a Man on the Moon, an exclusive leather-bound Collector's Edition.

"Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."

Beginning with the development of rocket technology and the first rival space missions by the U.S. and the Soviet Union, APOLLO: The Mission to Land a Man on the Moon chronicles in words and glorious illustrations the technical innovations, daring experiments, political decisions, and individual vision and courage that shaped the first decades of space exploration.

These pages take the reader through the triumphs and tragedies of the increasingly complex manned space missions, describing the landmark engineering breakthroughs and profiling the key people – scientists, engineers, politicians, and astronauts – of both the American and Russian space programs.

The history of space exploration's “Golden Age” comes to life in hundreds of brilliant historic pictures, including gorgeous full-color images from the moon, and full-size graphics that explain the technology of the missions and the workings of the rockets, capsules, command modules, lunar vehicles.

Comprehensive, accessible, and wonderfully illustrated, APOLLO: The Mission to Land a Man on the Moon is a stirring celebration of one of humanity's most exciting and ambitious achievements.
