Apollo 11 Box: Artifacts from the First Moon Landing

Overview

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." These were the words heard around the world on July 20, 1969, as American astronauts accomplished the first manned lunar landing. People everywhere watched and waited as Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins embarked on a daring eight-day space voyage to a place where no one had gone before. This "museum in a box" features 16 meticulously reproduced artifacts from the Apollo 11 mission, from its heart-pounding launch to its triumphant splashdown.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Beautifully designed by Laura Lovett, Chronicle Books's latest clever gift box brings together reproductions of 16 artifacts from man's first trip to the moon. Among the goodies are a copy of the front page of the Washington Post dated Monday, July 21, 1969, an iron-on Apollo 11 mission badge and a government handout about the in-flight menu ("a typical dinner includes beef and potatoes, butterscotch pudding, brownies and grape punch"). Each of the original astronauts also contributed personal effects for facsimile in this "museum in a box." Neil Armstrong offered a humorously matter-of-fact travel voucher listing his trip as "Houston, Texas to Cape Kennedy, Fla., Moon, Pacific Ocean, Hawaii, and return." Buzz Aldrin gave the little snapshots of his children that he carried with him on the voyage. Michael Collins provided maps, star charts and the "Solo Book" he wrote in during the flight. The box also includes a small paperback book by planetary geologist Craddock, which chronicles the main events of each day of the mission. Though readers who have little previous knowledge of the landmark flight may have trouble piecing these artifacts together into a coherent record, this mini-museum, which is published in collaboration with the Smithsonian, makes a great gift for those already interested in astronomy and space exploration.
