Go Team Moon

How 400 000 People Landed Apollo 11 on the Moon

Aldrin, Armstrong and Collins have said from the very beginning that they were the smallest part of the Apollo 11 mission and that most of the credit was due to the 400,000 other people who were essential workers on the Apollo Program.

This hardback picture book, written originally for children, uses NASA transcripts, archive material and pictures taken by the Apollo 11 crew to create a full picture of just how many people were integral to the landing.

This is a wonderful book championing the oft over looked 'back room' boys who worked so hard in the 1960s to achieve Kennedy's goal.
