Description de l'ouvrage

1 mai 2009

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.

5.0 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.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One Giant Leap:Apollo 11 Remembered 25 août 2010
Par Sara Howard - Publié sur Amazon.com

Well, Well This book has great pictures. I enjoyed it. I know about Apollo 11. I was working on Apollo, too. I know many folks who knew Neil, Buzz and Michael. It is a shame that some of the reviewers think that they are the gift from the the universe. These people not only give horrible reviews, they think that they are experts on the entire world and especially Apollo.
I got news for you, you are are nothing. One person NEVER gives a decent review, he is an offensive jerk.
He has to be THE expert on everything.

Anything that celebrates Apollo 11 is a good book. The pictures are lovely. The story is true to the actual mission.
The rest of your complaints ought to be forgotten.
