About the book:

The story of America's Apollo space projects of the 1960s, told from the perspective of the scientists, engineers and people at Mission Control who made the moon landing possible. This history of science is related in human terms, and aims to capture the drama of a critical era in world history. It begins with the group of engineers commissioned to build a space programme from scratch, and the experiments at Cape Canaveral which turned theory into practice. There are portraits of Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and many of the astronauts, and accounts of the success of Apollo 11 and disastrous failure of Apollo 13. Charles Murray is the author of the bestselling "Losing Ground" and "In Pursuit of Happiness and Good Government".
