Journey to the Moon
Journey to the Moon....... Coming soon
With a foreword written by Apollo16 Lunar Module Pilot Charles M Duke
This is the second book in the series and recalls the Apollo lunar missions flown during the 1960's and 1970's. The format follows a typical Apollo mission profile from launch through landing. There are also additional sections on hardware, the Apollo missions, astronauts and our long interest in observing and exploring the moon. As America was aiming for the moon, the Soviet Union was in a race to send their cosmonauts first. Unfortunately the Soviet manned lunar programme never left the ground though they had more success with unmanned robot craft which are described in this book. Interactive pages, useful chronology and website references are included. The book is has many coloured images throughout.
