Moon Landing: Apollo 11 40th Anniversary Pop-Up (Hardcover)
"This wonderful book retells our story vividly. I should know; I was there."
— Buzz Aldrin
Trace the history of people's fascination with the moon — and the scientific developments that led to a ground-breaking mission — in an out-of-this-world novelty book marking the first moon landing. Acclaimed author Richard Platt focuses on humankind's dreams of traveling to the moon, the race to conquer space, the technology needed to reach the moon and sustain the astronauts in space, and the moon landing itself. Re-creating the excitement of the expedition are extraordinary pop-ups depicting a rocket, the lunar module, a spaceship, and a spectacular spherical moon, while booklets and flaps offer readers a wealth of intriguing facts.
* Published in anticipation of the fortieth anniversary of the first moon landing on July 20, 1969
* Features official NASA photographs, two mini-books, and fun informational flaps
