“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” were the words spoken by astronaut Neil Armstrong as he stepped off the Apollo 11. This was the first and most famous manned mission to land on the Moon. As a 19-year-old college journalist, author David Chudwin covered the launch from Florida in July 1969. Chudwin was the only college journalist with official NASA credentials, representing the college press and had extraordinary access to the astronauts, rocket scientists, launch pads, rockets, and control centres.
2019 will be the 50thanniversary Apollo 11 – a time to look back to celebrate that mission and forward to our future in space. Divided into three parts, this book provides the author’s account of covering the first landing on the Moon in 1969; lessons learned from the Apollo program and their relevance to future space activities; and our future in space including new rockets, space stations, and trips back to the Moon and to Mars.
