CD-ROM and Book. Foreword written by Buzz Aldrin. Since the first glimmerings of intellect on planet Earth the moon's quicksilver light has beckoned. On July of 1969 the people of the world were witness to an event which was the undisputed scientific accomplishment of the 20th century. When astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin planted their footsteps in the barren dusty powder of the lunar surface they not only fulfilled President John Kennedy's bold challenge but also mankind's ancient dream. An accomplishment without parallel, the flight of Apollo 11 stands alone as humanity's greatest feat of imagination made manifest. Some of the rare official documentation of this inspirational voyage is collected and made commercially available for the first time.
