Nearly 50 years have passed since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon.
The July 20, 1969, moon landing changed the world and forever changed Houston. The Houston Chronicle presents "Mission Moon," a hardcover collector’s book that explores how the country came together to fulfill President John F. Kennedy’s goal of reaching the lunar surface by 1970, NASA's bold missions — and crippling tragedies — since that historic day, the future of space exploration and the fate of Houston as America's "Space City."
This book has some very awesome and detailed photos. Perfect for any space buff.
Mission Moon: How 50 Years of Space Exploration Defined Houston
Got these as an end of year gift. Being "old" I still like to have and read books. These fill in important Houston history that I have witnessed since arriving in 1970.
