Abstract Note"During the Apollo program of the 1960s and early 1970s the United States of America landed a total of 12 men on the Moon. Although politically initiated as a 'space race' in the context of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, this epic program became a great feat of exploration." "Apollo - The Definitive Sourcebook brings together all the available information in one reference work. Importantly, it refers to original documentation, resolving problems caused by reported differences in measures, typographical errors and so on. The book gives a complete overview of the entire Apollo program."--Jacket
