Publisher Comments:

Marking the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 and the first moonwalk, the latest addition to the long-running Eyewitness series takes the reader on a lunar voyage to Earth's nearest neighbour. This book explores the Moon from its place in myth and legend to the 20th Century space race and beyond.
