|Summary, etc.:||Fifty years ago, in July 1969, Apollo 11 became the first manned mission to land on the moon, and Neil Armstrong the first man to step onto its surface. President Nixon called it the greatest week since creation. In the most authoritative book ever written about Apollo, David Whitehouse reveals the true drama behind the mission, telling the story in the words of those who took part, based around exclusive interviews with the key players. This enthralling book takes listeners from the early rocket pioneers to the shock America received from the Soviets' launch of the first satellite, Sputnik, and from the race to put the first person into space through President Kennedy's enthusiasm and later doubts to the astronauts' intense competition to leave the first footprint.|
