Neil Armstrong : a life of flight by Jay Barbree( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To date, everything written about Armstong's life and flights has been written from the outside looking in; Barbree is the only person whom Neil Armstrong trusted to share close personal details about his inspiring life story. Working from his years of notes, and with the full cooperation of the Armstrong family, Barbree has written the definitive biography of America's most famous astronaut and one of our greatest modern heroes. Much has already been written about Armstrong and the major players who helped him fly to the moon, but he wanted this book to emphasize his two passions--family and flight. Barbree and Armstrong discussed everything, from his two marriages and the death of his baby daughter, to his love of flying, the war years and of course, his time in space. The book, timed to coincide with the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch and full of never-before-seen photos, includes many personal details that have never before been written, such as what Armstrong really felt when he took that first step on the moon, what life in NASA was like, his relationships with the other astronauts, and what he felt the future of space exploration should be"--
A journey through time : exploring the universe with the Hubble Space Telescope by Jay Barbree( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbree, coauthor of Moonshot (LJ 4/15/94) and a TV space journalist, and science fiction novelist Caidin survey the universe as seen by modern astronomers. Their prose is lush, and the color photographs are beautiful. After opening with an account of the initial failure of the Hubble optical system and its repair by a skilled and daring team of astronauts, the authors drift away from the Hubble story for whole chapters at a time; the text and the photos are derived from many sources, not just the Hubble Telescope. Compared with Carolyn Peterson's Hubble Vision (LJ 11/15/95), this new book is far more readable for the general public, but it gives far less scientific and technical detail and tells disappointingly less about the Hubble Telescope's work. Recommended chiefly for public and secondary school libraries.?Jack W. Weigel, Univ. of Michigan Lib., Ann Arbor
Live from Cape Canaveral : covering the space race, from sputnik to today by Jay Barbree( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NBC TV reporter Barbree will be a familiar figure to many readers for his frequent appearances on the Today show and his decadeslong coverage of the space program. As a cub radio announcer in Georgia in the late 1950s, Barbree (coauthor of Moon Shot) realized the next big story was taking place on the rocket launch pad in Florida. He began a string of scoops early on when, hiding in a men's room stall, he heard that a satellite launch would carry the first broadcast from space, a recorded message from President Eisenhower. Barbree's inside access allows him to give pungent details: in 1961, [t]he astronauts' crew quarters ... were smelly, military, uncomfortable and too damn close to the chimpanzees' colony (a chimp having preceded man into space). While recounting the exploits of the early cowboy astronauts, he gives equal time to the tragedies of Apollo 1 and Challenger (he broke the story on the cause of the shuttle's disaster) and the near-tragedy of Apollo 13

Neil Armstrong az első ember, aki a Holdra lépett by Jay Barbree( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Hungarian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Neil Armstrong nevét biztosan sokan ismerik - ám annál többet vélhetően kevesen tudnak róla elmondani, hogy ő volt az első ember a Holdon. Róla jelentetett meg könyvet jó barátja, a legismertebb amerikai "űrrepülési újságíró", Jay Barbee (aki annak idején Emmy-díjat kapott az Armstrong holdra szállásáról készített tudósításáért). Az Egyesült Államokban az űrhajós 2012-ben bekövetkezett halála után két évvel napvilágot látott, és most magyarul is olvasható, John Glenn - az első amerikai űrhajós - előszavával ellátott kötet a beszélgetéseken túl természetesen a szerző saját jegyzeteire, valamint a NASA űrrepüléseinek jegyzőkönyvére építve vázolja fel az életutat. Megtudhatjuk, hogyan lett Armstrong pilóta, milyen bevetései voltak a koreai háborúban, hogyan kapcsolódott be az űrprogramba, hogyan szállt fel az X-15-nek nevezett rakéta-repülővel a világűr határáig, miként hajtott végre elsőként a Gemini-8 űrhajóval kényszerleszállást a Föld körüli pályáról. Legrészletesebben természetesen a Holdra szállásról esik szó, amelynek kapcsán azt is megtudhatjuk, milyen érzés volt Földünk néma kísérőjének felszínén sétálni. A repülési szenvedélyen túl az űrhajós emberi oldalát is megismerhetjük: hogyan telt élete 1969. július 20. után, miként viselte a nyilvánosságot, vagy hogy mit gondol a családról és a barátokról. A nyomtatásban még soha nem látott fekete-fehér fotókkal illusztrált kötet névmutatóval zárul
