7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By John R. Keller on May 7, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This relatively small book presents a very good summary of NASA's conquest of the Moon. The book is divided into three sections plus several appendices. The first section of the covers the early ideas about the moon and Russia's and America's pre-Apollo space race. The second section, which is approximately 2/3 of the book, details the entire lunar exploration program from the early Ranger missions to the splashdown of Apollo 17. This portion of the book also has some nice sections of the launching facilities and the Lunar EVA suits. The final section examines what was learned from the exploration of the Moon. The book does contain some minor information on the unmanned Russia probes to the Moon. The appendices are first rate and provide a synopsis of the missions, a dictionary of the important geology terms and a bibliography.
If you're looking for a book that contains an excellent overview of the exploration of the Moon, this book is it. The book not only provides information on all the missions that went to the moon, but also provides information of surface experiments, the lunar rover, spacesuit design, etc. While all the photographs are in black and white, they are excellent quality and include some of the more classic space explorations photographs as well as those, which were not as famous.
