Abstract:

"In Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Moon, we finally hear about Apollo from the Earthly perspective. Howard tells us what it was like for the 400,000 people on the ground who together built the largest and most powerful rocket in history. Though the astronauts themselves were, of course, important to the mission, this story looks beyond the glitz and glamour of the stars and honors the men and women who made this vast program a reality."--Page 4 of cover.

von gungho (Veröffentlicht von WorldCat-Nutzern/innen 2011-02-16) Ausgezeichnet Permalink


    When I read this book, I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting something
    very technical with complex equations, intricate diagrams and stories about
