Présentation de l'éditeur

The first moon landing in July 1969 captured the imagination of the world as no subsequent “space spectacular” has. Forty years later, space historian Piers Bizony has produced a stunning visual record of this unparalleled mission. Drawing on high-resolution images from the entire suite of Apollo 11’s on-board film magazines, the book presents a complete picture of the mission: the launch, the astronauts’ lives inside the spacecraft, the landing and moon walk, and finally the return to earth to worldwide acclaim. Accompanying these remarkable images, many published here for the first time, is Bizony’s fascinating essay on the lasting cultural and emotional impact of the mission. Quotes from astronauts, scientists, and literary commentators add an extra dimension to Bizony’s account.

Apollo 11 may have happened a long time ago, Bizony remarks, but it casts an important shadow over today’s generation. Can we live up to it and learn from it--or even repeat its achievements with new spacecraft? However tempting it might be to assume that our advanced modern society could go back to the moon, it is an unavoidable fact, as this book makes clear, that Apollo 11 was an event that may never be replayed. One Giant Leap gives modern readers the information and perspective for thinking about Apollo 11 and space exploration in general in an entirely new way.

HASH(0x9be1be88) étoiles sur 5 One Giant Leap 14 septembre 2009
Par D. Price - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book was purchased in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the July 20, 1969 landing. It tells the story in detail with all of the original famous pictures, and even many color photos I had never seen before. It gives the history with wonderful large and full color photos of John Glenn's Mercury Atlas ship, Mission Control, etc. In addition, the book looks to the future with text and photo quality illustrations of Orion.

The only things I could not find were photos of Gemini and an index. However, this is more of a coffee table book so an index is not really necessary.

I greatly enjoyed this book and would recommend it without hesitation to the spaceflight enthusiast and/or the historian. THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THE PICTURES.

HASH(0x9be200b4) étoiles sur 5 Great pictures but the narrative is wrong in many places 25 juillet 2012
Par Colin Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a coffee table sized book which I bought mainly for the photographs, some of which have not been published before (although can be found on various websites if you look hard enough).
The photographs are excellent, highly detailed, a lot of color photographs taken from the training and the before the flight, with some taken years after the flight (a good one of Neil Armstrong given a talk 40 years later). There are also some computer generated pictures to give a feel for what some things were like where photographs were not available.
Unfortunately for a book dedicated to the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, the narrative that goes along with the book is fairly badly written and in quite a few places just plain wrong.
One glaring example can be found starting on P45 where the author is talking about the computers on board and the infamous program alarm incident during decent. The author starts correctly with mention of Program Alarm 1201 then in the text gives the quote of "Give us the reading on the 1202 alarm". This 1202 alarm happened later and was not part of the same sequence of events. The author then goes on to say the that when Charlie Duke gave the 30 second fuel warning then the Eagle starting moving horizantal (this happened before) and also that when the fuel ran out the abort system would automatically take the astronauts back up to dock with the command module (incorrect). The author states that has heard the air to ground communication tapes and goes on about inflections in the voices but if he had truly heard the tapes then he would know that what he had just written was plainly wrong.
The narrative is a great letdown to what could have been a good book.
The book is worth it for the pictures but do not read it for the content.

Par Delta Sigma - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I worked on Gemini and Apollo at Kennedy, and I try to read every space history book I can get my hands on. From the title, I expected this book to be exclusively about the Apollo 11 mission. However, there is a lot of material included that, while still of interest, has nothing to do with Apollo 11. The photos are good, altho some of the captions are a little misleading. There are several technical and factual errors, including the strange one making the rounds lately about Apollo 6 heading toward earth before recovering and limping into orbit.
