In 1961, President John F. Kennedy proposed the nation spend twenty billion dollars to land a man on the Moon before the end of the decade. Stone and Andres reveal for the first time the unknown stories of the individuals whose imaginative work across several decades culminated in America's momentous achievement. They show that the moon landing-- now celebrating its fiftieth anniversary-- grew out of the dreams of science fiction writers, filmmakers, military geniuses, and rule-breaking scientists. Setting these key players in the political, social, and cultural climate of the time, the book focuses on the science, the history, and the individuals behind what was undoubtedly the greatest human achievement of the twentieth century. -- adapted from jacket

Chasing the moon : an epic rivalry, a monumental challenge, the race to be the first by Robert Stone( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A charismatic young president issued the historic Moon landing challenge. This book, which greatly expands the companion PBS series, tell the stories of the visionaries--based on eyewitness accounts and newly discovered archival material--who helped America win the space race with the first lunar landing fifty years ago. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy proposed the nation spend twenty billion dollars to land a man on the Moon before the end of the decade. Based on eyewitness accounts and newly discovered archival material, Chasing the Moon reveals for the first time the unknown stories of the fascinating individuals whose imaginative work across several decades culminated in America's momentous achievement. More than a story of engineers and astronauts, the moon landing--now celebrating its fiftieth anniversary--grew out of the dreams of science fiction writers, filmmakers, military geniuses, and rule-breaking scientists. They include: Science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, whose writing inspired some of the key players in the Moon race. A scientific paper he wrote in his twenties led to the U.S. beating Russia in one area of space: communications satellites. Wernher von Braun, the former Nazi military genius who oversaw Hitler's rocket weapons program. After working on ballistic missiles for the U.S. Army, he was recruited by NASA to manage the creation of the Saturn V moon rocket. Astronaut Frank Borman, commander of the first mission to circumnavigate the Moon, whose powerful testimony before Congress in 1967 decisively saved the U.S. lunar program from being cancelled. Poppy Northcutt, a young mathematician who was the first woman to work in Mission Control. Her media exposure as a unique presence in this all-male world allowed her the freedom to stand up for equal rights for women and minorities. Edward Dwight, an African American astronaut candidate, recruited at the urging of the Kennedy White House to further the administration's civil rights agenda--but not everyone welcomed his inclusion. Setting these key players in the political, social, and cultural climate of the time, and including captivating photographs throughout, Chasing the Moon focuses on the science and the history, but most important, the extraordinary individuals behind what was undoubtedly the greatest human achievement of the twentieth century

Farewell, good brothers( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An offbeat, provacative documentary film about a small collection of people who, back in the 1950's, claimed to have been contacted by friendly visitors from the planet Venus. In a vain attempt to establish a new global religion and to bring about world peace, these so-called 'Contactees' pioneered much of the mythology about Flying Saucers, UFO's and Alien visitations. Thirty-five years later, against all odds, they're still trying to make converts."--Container
