Product Description

An out-of-this-world exploration of the 1969 Moon landing from children's science expert Seymour Simon!

In July of 1969, NASA sent the Apollo 11 spacecraft to the Moon. Inside were three people: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. They went into lunar orbit a few days later. More than a hundred hours after launch, the word came back: “The Eagle has landed!”

In this exciting account of the famous 1969 Moon landing, award-winning science writer Seymour Simon tells the story of the Space Race between the US and the Soviet Union; recalls how families across the world sat captivated in front of their TVs to witness humankind's first steps beyond Earth; and explains much of the science and technology that got our astronauts to the Moon on that remarkable day.

Perfect for young scholars' school reports, Destination: Moon features clear text, vibrantly colored pages, engaging sidebars, and stunning full-color photographs. This book includes an author's note, a glossary, a timeline, and an index and supports the Common Core State Standards.
