A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts

by Andrew Chaikin - £12.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241363157 | ISBN 10: 0241363152

This is the definitive account of the heroic Apollo programme.
 
When astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took their 'giant leap for mankind' across a ghostly lunar landscape, they were watched by some 600 million people on Earth 240,000 miles away.
 
Drawing on hundreds of hours of in-depth interviews with the astronauts and mission personnel, this is the story of the twentieth century's greatest human achievement, minute-by-minute, through the eyes of those who were there.
 
From the tragedy of the fire in Apollo 1 during a simulated launch, Apollo 8's bold pioneering flight around the moon, through to the euphoria of the first moonwalk, and to the discoveries made by the first scientist on the moon aboard Apollo 17, this book covers it all.
