Summary
"As we plan our return to the Moon - this time to stay - and as we consider the journey to Mars, it is vitally important to revisit the lessons of the past. This fast-moving and illustrated book does just that. It captures the excitement, spirit, and frustration of the Apollo crews as they explored this new frontier, carried out unique scientific experiments and became the first lunar field geologists."--Jacket
