The Apollo 11 moon landing : 40th anniversary photographic retrospective by Dennis R Jenkins( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

20:17:40 UTC, 20 July 1969. Contrary to popular belief, few people remember the first words actually spoken from the Moon. The first words were procedural, hardly memorable: "Contact light; Okay, engine stop; ACA out of detent," etc. Then, in words intended for public consumption, spoken to a worldwide audience so enthralled with the mission that tens of millions were listening and watching, live, in fuzzy black and white by Neil Armstrong: "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." It was a culmination of a dream that dated back millennia, although the landing could trace its specific origin to a speech by the President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, on 25 May 1961: ". . . I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth. . . " Landing Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the Moon had cost the lives of three astronauts in the Apollo 1 fire, as well as something approaching $125 billion (in 2009 dollars) of American treasure. It stands as the landmark technical achievement in the 6,000-year recorded history of the human race. This photo scrapbook shows images some famous, others unknown that chronicle the epic journey of Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins aboard Apollo 11, 40 years ago

Launched by Space Shuttle Discovery in 1990, Hubble has circled Earth more than 97,000 times and provided more than 4,000 astronomers access to the stars not possible from inside Earth's atmosphere. Hubble has helped answer some of science's key questions and provided images that have awed and inspired the world. The STS-125 mission will return the space shuttle to the Hubble Space Telescope for one last visit before the shuttle fleet retires in 2010. This detailed coverage of the last servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope covers training, launch, and return to Earth with never-before-seen photographs of astronauts working 300 miles above Earth, plus spectacular images of other galaxies, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope
