The Apollo 11 mission began as a challenge. In 1961 President John F Kennedy committed the United States to achieving, within the decade, the goal of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth. This book tells the Apollo 11 story through the medium of artist Adrian Buckley's atmospheric imagery. It is a story of epic heroism and technological endeavour, a tale of three extraordinary men and their incredible achievement: Mission Commander Neil Armstrong, Lunar Module Pilot Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin and Command Module Pilot Michael Collins. On 21 July 1969, when Neil Armstrong opened the hatch in the Lunar Module and descended the ladder to set foot on the surface of the Moon, he became in an instant the greatest traveller in human history. Written for children, but with parents very much in mind, this is a book to be explored and enjoyed.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing, TASCHEN has paired Norman Mailer’s seminal text with spectacular photography—from the archives of NASA, LIFE magazine, and many other sources—to create a unique tribute to the defining scientific mission of our time. It has been called the single most historic event of the 20th century: On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins met John F. Kennedy's call for a manned Moon landing by the end of the 1960s. A decade of tests and training, a staff of 400,000 engineers and scientists, a budget of $24 billion, and the most powerful rocket ever launched all combined in an unprecedented event watched by millions the world over. And no one captured the men, the mood, and the machinery like Norman Mailer. One of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, Norman Mailer was hired by LIFE in 1969 to cover the Moon shot. His three-part feature was the longest nonfiction piece LIFE had published. He enhanced and extended his reportage with deeper reflection in the brilliantly crafted book, Of a Fire on the Moon, excerpted here for the first time. Equally adept at examining the science of space travel and the psychology of the men involved—from Saturn V rocket engineer Wernher von Braun, to the crucial NASA support staff, to the three astronauts—Mailer provides provocative and trenchant insights into this epoch-making event. Illustrating this volume are hundreds of the best photographs and maps from the NASA vaults, magazine archives, and private collections. Many of them previously unpublished, these images document the development of the agency and the mission, life inside the command module and on the Moon’s surface, and the world’s jubilant reaction to the landing. This edition includes an original introduction by Colum McCann and captions by leading Apollo 11 experts, explaining the history and science behind the images, citing the mission log and publications of the day, and post-flight astronaut interviews. Limited to 1969 copies in two editions Each copy includes a Plexiglas-framed, ready-to-hang, archival-quality, numbered photographic print, produced using the revolutionary new Skia printing technique, and signed by Buzz Aldrin. This shot of Aldrin walking on the Moon is the definitive image of the Apollo 11 mission, and one of the most iconic photos ever taken. Hardcover in box with print XXL format: 36.5 x 44 cm (14.4 x 17.3 in.); with framed print: 32.5 x 40 cm (12.8 x 15.7 in.) 348 pages, including 4 foldouts Utilizing state-of-the-art digital technology, no expense has been spared to restore the original photographic materials to the highest possible standards English language edition No. 1–1957 Limited to 1957 numbered copies Packaged in a custom-molded white resin box with a convex Plexiglas window No. 1958–1969 LUNAR ROCK EDITION Marc Newson designed this special edition of only 12 copies Each copy comes with a unique specimen of lunar rock, ranging in weight from a slice of the moon at 0.4 grams to 30.34 grams, one of the largest lunar meteorites ever found on Earth Specifications and prices available on request

On July 20, 1969, US astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. The Apollo 11 mission that carried him and his two fellow astronauts on their epic journey marked the successful culmination of a quest that, ironically, had begun in Nazi Germany thirty years before. This is the story of the Apollo 11 mission and the ‘space hardware’ that made it all possible. Author Chris Riley looks at the evolution and design of the mighty Saturn V rocket, the Command and Service Modules, and the Lunar Module. He also describes the space suits worn by the crew, with their special life support systems. Launch procedures are described, ‘flying’ the Saturn V, navigation, course correction ‘burns’, orbital rendezvous techniques, flying the LEM, moon landing, moon walk, take-off from the moon, and earth re-entry procedure. Includes performance data, fuels, biographies of Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, Gene Kranz and Werner von Braun. Detailed appendices cover all of the Apollo missions, with full details of crews, spacecraft names and logos, mission priorities, moon landing sites, and the Lunar Rover.

20:17:40 UTC, 20 July 1969. Spoken by Neil Armstrong to an enthralled worldwide audience of tens of millions who watched and listened, live, moments after Apollo 11's landing on the Moon, were the words:"Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." It was a culmination of a dream that dated back millennia. Landing Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the Moon had cost the lives of three astronauts in the Apollo 1 (AS-204) fire, as well as something approaching $125 billion (in 2009 dollars) of American treasure. It stands as the landmark technical achievement in the 6,000-year recorded history of the human race. This photo scrapbook shows images - some famous, others unknown - that chronicle the epic jouorney of Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins aboard Apollo 11 forty years ago.
