Apollo 11 Moon Landing: 40th Anniversary Photographic Retrospective
Stock #: KB10098
Author: Dennis R. Jenkins and Jorge Frank

OUT OF PRINT

20:17:40 UTC, 20 July 1969. Contrary to popular belief, few people remember the first words actually spoken from the Moon. The first words were procedural, hardly memorable: "Contact light; Okay, engine stop; ACA – out of detent," etc. Then, in words intended for public consumption, spoken to a worldwide audience so enthralled with the mission that tens of millions were listening and watching, live, in fuzzy black and white by Neil Armstrong: "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." This photo scrapbook shows images — some famous, others unknown — that chronicle the epic journey of Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins aboard Apollo 11, 40 years ago. more»

Touching Space: The Story of Project Manhigh
Stock #: KB10438
Author: Gregory P. Kennedy

List Price: $24.95
Karen's Price: $22.95

Project Manhigh took humans to the threshold of space using balloons. Drawing upon flight reports and technical data, this book documents Project Manhigh and the high altitude flights that preceded it. The Manhigh flights were, in many ways, prototypes for future space missions. On each of the three flights, the Air Force placed a lone pilot in a sealed capsule nineteen miles above the ground. At such extreme altitudes, the pilots were well within the functional equivalent of outer space and needed the sealed capsule to survive. Manhigh existed prior to the creation of NASA and helped pave the way for human space exploration. more»
