"THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND." With these words, Neil Armstrong marked the climax of one of the most exciting adventures in history and the beginning of a new era of human endeavor. MISSIONS TO THE MOON traces our quest to explore this final frontier, starting with the deadly development of German V1s and V2s in the Second World War, through the pioneering adventures of the Apollo moon-landing program, culminating in the future of lunar exploration with the plans for missions by China, Japan, and Europe. A free app enables special interactive pages to come alive, allowing you to witness Neil Armstrong’s first steps, explore your own Lunar Module, and access rare documents as if the story were unfolding before your eyes. With more than 150 stunning photographs you will celebrate the success of Apollo 8, the first manned spacecraft to orbit a celestial body, marvel at Apollo 11, and share the dangers endured by the astronauts aboard the ill-fated Apollo 13.
