The story of the lunar landing and the events that led up to it, told in text and visually stunning 3-D images. July 2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11's epochal lunar landing, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the surface of the moon. This visually rich book offers a new perspective on that historic accomplishment, telling the story of the lunar landing and the events that led up to it with text and 3-D images. A 3D viewer, designed by astrophysicist (and lead guitarist with the rock group Queen) Brian May is included with the book. Mission Moon 3-D offers unique access to the Apollo astronauts and what they saw. It tells the story of the US-Soviet space race, from Sputnik and the space dog Laika to Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy declared that America would put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong guided the Eagle to a safe landing on the edge of the moon's Sea of Tranquility. President Richard Nixon told the astronauts, and the nation, that it was "the greatest week in the history of the world since the Creation." Mission Moon 3-D recounts all this and more in memorable and visually stunning fashion

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"April 1970--the Apollo 13 mission is 178,000 miles from Earth, just two days away from a lunar landing, when an explosion rips the spacecraft apart and puts the crew's lives on the line. Captain Jim Lovell has to work quickly and decisively to save his crew and what's left of his ship. After struggling to stay alive for four days in a freezing cold spacecraft, no one knows if the command module carrying the astronauts can survive a fiery re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere. Only the leadership of Jim Lovell, the ingenuity of the NASA team in space and on the ground, and the robust systems of the spacecraft offer a chance for survival. [An] account of the infamous 'successful failure' of the Apollo 13 mission"--C.f. publisher's website
Failure is not an option by Gene Kranz( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At 25, Gene Kranz was a former Air Force pilot working as a flight test engineer for McDonnell Douglas. At 26, he quit his job to work for the fledgling space agency NASA. For the next 34 years, Kranz had the best view of the space program possible without leaving the ground, serving as primary flight director throughout the Gemini and Apollo programs. Based on Kranz's acclaimed memoir of the same name, FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION offers an extraordinary behind-the-scenes look at the early years of NASA, highlighting defining moments such as John Glenn's historic first flight, the moon landing, and the "successful failure" of Apollo 13. Kranz and other NASA veterans recall the "whiz kid" atmosphere in the beginning, where people in their twenties were put in positions of enormous responsibility, and show how the extraordinary exploits of the astronauts were supported by equally impressive work on the ground. Narrated by actor Scott Glenn (The Right Stuff), FALURE IS NOT AN OPTION is a gripping account that adds an important new perspective to the story of the Space Race."--Publisher's website
