Overview

The Apollo space program was the largest technical undertaking of the twentieth century. In three short years, from 1969-1972, nine missions headed to the moon, and six of them landed men on its surface and safely returned home.

Destination Moon tells the significant, spectacular, and intriguing story of the Apollo program through first-person accounts by the astronauts themselves—both their mission dialogue and retrospective reminiscences—explained and put into context with expert commentary by Rod Pyle. With more than 100 images, some rarely seen, Destination Moon is a whole new look at one of mankind's most extraordinary achievements.
