Team Moon [SCM]

by Catherine Thimmesh Author

How 400,000 people landed Apollo 11 on the Moon. Includes fascinating background information on the different teams assigned to create, test, re-test, produce, and support the various systems needed for Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to land on the moon and to televise the event. First-hand accounts and quotations are sprinkled throughout (which unfortunately include two short instances of swearing, but both can easily be edited if reading aloud) along with lots of photographs. A wonderful mixture of technical facts presented with human faces.
