This is the National Geographic book that commemmorates the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo program. The narrative uses 50 key artifacts sourced from the Smithsonian archives to tell the story of the program, whose goal was to land and return a man on on the Moon. Intriguing back stories about the artifacts -- which include the lunar rover, a space survival kit, space food, a stamp honoring Russian Yuri Gagarin, plastic astronaut action figures, and Moon rocks — accompany profiles of key astronauts, such as Neal Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. The book also features the contributions of President John F. Kennedy, newsman Walter Cronkite, and NASA scientists such as Margaret Hamilton. Hardcover; 320 pages. 9" H x 7 1/4" W x 1" D.
