Apollo Moonwalks: The Amazing Lunar Missions
Thousands of miles away from Earth astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin made history by becoming the first people to walk on the Moon. Within a few years, ten other men made this same thrilling journey. These twelve Apollo astronauts did something no one else has repeated, -they walked on the Moon. How did they prepare? How did they survive in an alien environment? What was moonwalking like? Gregory L. Vogt answers these questions in this cool book. He recreates the lunar landing voyages with vivid and detailed descriptions.
