Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is a fascinating and fun book . . . the perfect gift."  —Tom Hanks, actor and executive producer, From The Earth to the Moon



"A fascinating visual history of an endeavour that challenged and occupied some of the finest minds of the 20th century, beginning with the early space cadets and rocket pioneers. NASA stood on the shoulders of many giants when it landed men on the moon."  —Sir Arthur C. Clarke


"This book should be on the desk of everyone working on the next lunar lander. It is full of history and lessons learned."  —Richard F. Gordon, Jr, Apollo 12 command module pilot



"Not just a pleasure for historians and students, this book could serve as inspiration for those working on our return to the Moon."  —Astronomy Magazine



"A fun book full of illustrations on a plethora of moon vehicles."  —Air & Space Magazine, Smithsonian Institution


"This book is certainly hard to put down."  —Spaceflight, British Interplanetary Society


"I was both impressed and amazed clear through to the last page."   —Ron Miller, Bonestell Space Art, and author, The Dream Machines


"A book unlike any other, meticulously researched and providing information not to be found elsewhere. Strongly recommended."  —Sir Patrick Moore, The Sky At Night, BBC

For a Manned US Spaceflight Hiistorian, this is THE one-stop shop for the variety of designs and missions considered prior to settling n the configurations the US did for Apollo- the Lunar Lander, the Command-Service craft and even the Lunar Roving Vehicle used on the final 3 moon landing missions. Godwin does a truly thorough job presenting the information in a decent summary format (...as might be expected by the founder of Apogee books- that fills the niche of human spaceflight so well).

Space Buffs will love the illustrations in this history of lunar vehicles that might-have-been and almost-where. An absolute must have if you're into the history of manned space exploration.

Robert Godwin has been doing a stellar job of collecting information documenting the history of space exploration. I bought this book a few years ago and have used the references he sited to further my own research into the lost history of the space program that was not developed by the American government after the election of 1968. I especially liked the CAD renderings of the old pen and ink drafted drawings of the proposed equipment from advanced apollo programs that were cut after the first moon landing. Buy two copies, keep one for your collection and donate the other to your public school library. Light the fire for space exploration and development for the next generation.

I bought this book when I stumbled across it in Borders before they closed. I couldn't believe that I'd never heard of it before then!

If you have any interest in the Space Race, especially in the Lunar exploration phases, do yourself a favor and get this book. The author has done an amazing amount of research and each vehicle is presented with a combination of drawings, blueprints and 3D renderings.

The sheer number of designs will impress even the most ardent space fan. It would be a very rare person indeed who knows even half of the designs presented within.

Excellent and highly recommended!

This book presents the space historian, or buff a level of subject coverage seldom found in most space history books. The majority of books on lunar exploration deal only with the actual hardware used in this endeavor. Mr. Godwin's work succeeds in revealing many of the conceptual hardware designs, created by scientists and engineers in the past seventy years. Superbly illustrated, with many historical photos and painstakingly created computer 3D imagery.
