I was surprised to discover how little I actually knew about the moon landing before reading Moonshot, but through the events detailed and the descriptions of the different personalities involved, I now feel well-educated! Definitely a book worth buying.
Kennedy proposed the USSR to make the trip togheter, becuse he was trilled of the high expenses. But he did in a speech the day before he was killed, so it never become reality. The main on-board computer had 32Kb memory, but it was enought to compute their position and trajectroy, even if the commander must take their actual relative position... blocking one eye and using a sextant in the other, like any XVI Century marine and using apparent still stars as referene... This kind of data will jump from page to page.
Interesting reading, highly recommended.
