Product Details


“This remarkable book by Teasel Muir-Harmony, a curator at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, tells the story of the technical and human aspects of the Apollo program through a series of objects…From the forward by Michael Collins, command module pilot on Apollo 11, to the closing comments of Buzz Aldrin, the lunar module pilot on the same mission, readers are in for a stunning ride through the familiar and the surprising.” –Physics Today
“This clever and intriguing artifact key to Apollo makes the legendary missions feel human and freshly astonishing.”  –Booklist

“The saga of NASA’s glory days, illustrated with artifacts from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.” –GeekWire

“There is something here for everyone from the person who doesn’t know about these missions at all to the person who is looking to fill in the spaces of their knowledge.” –Lit and Life
“It is very rare for me these days to read a book in print – but for this I’m glad that I made the exception. It’s gorgeous, in its own geeky-techie-nostalgic way, and I am glad to have it on my shelves to pick up and dip into, over and over again.” – Reading Reality

“The entire book is beautifully done, from the photographs to the people and items that were included, each focusing on a different mission or important event, I loved looking through this book.” –Books Are My Thing

“…a book to be browsed and savored.” –From the TBR Pile

“I live in the town that the space program built. Most of our schools are named after either astronauts or shuttles. My husband is an aerospace engineer, my mother works for the U.S. Space and Rocket Center and we all drive past a Saturn V on a daily basis. With the space program being so much a part of my day to day life, I figured there wasn’t much this book could teach me but I was so wrong!” –I Wish I Lived in a Library
