About this book

Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the Moon in 1969 - the first humans to visit another celestial body. This extraordinary lunar odyssey grew out of the rivalry between the United States and Soviet Union during the Cold War. To mark the 50th anniversary of Sputnik in 2007 and the 50th anniversary of the founding of NASA in October 2008, this epic moment is recaptured with a lively and compelling new account and rare archival photographs, narrating the story from both the American and the Russian perspectives and showing how each space-faring nation played a vital role in stimulating the work of the other. The authors recreate in vivid detail the "parallel universes" of the American and Soviet space exploration programs, with visionaries Wernher von Braun and Sergei Korolev and political leaders John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev at the epicenter of their story. This book chronicles the story of the epic race to the Moon and back as you've never heard it before.
