The Apollo missions to the Moon are some of the most successful and well-remembered manned spaceflights that NASA has ever accomplished, taking place in the heyday of space travel. Indeed, the programme was the only one to achieve the ultimate goal of placing humankind on the Moon, which it did no less than six times between 1969 and 1972.
Here aviation author Norman Ferguson reveals fascinating facts and figures, and recounts amazing stories about the astronauts, their spacecraft and their missions whose achievements have never been surpassed.
