Missions to the Moon traces our quest to explore this final frontier, starting with the deadly development of German V1s and V2s in the Second World War, through the pioneering adventures of the Apollo moon-landing program, and culminating in the future of lunar exploration with the recent missions by China, Japan, and Europe. Through 150 stunning photographs and 20 beautifully recreated rare facsimile documents that almost make you feel like part of the crew, we witness the lethal Apollo 1 fire; celebrate the success of Apollo 8, the first manned spacecraft to orbit a celestial body; marvel at Apollo 11 and the first man to land on the moon; and share the dangers endured by the astronauts aboard the ill-fated Apollo 13. These are events the whole word watched in rapt attention. Now everyone can relive the experience or enjoy it for the first time. The historic facsimile documents include: * Werner von Braun’s 1964 design for a space station * A 1969 issue of the USSR newspaper Pravda, celebrating the success of Soyuz 4 and 5 * The official NASA photograph of the Apollo 7 flight crew * The mission report from Apollo 11, as well as the descent map * The Apollo 13 flight log * A memo outlining future plans for Apollos 18, 19, and 20 before they were cancelled * And more!  … (mer)

"Missions to the Moon" is a fascinating study of a piece of history which may soon be forgotten in our turmoil filled world. Already, this was history the of parents and grandparents for those adults in their twenty's and even thirty's.

What ages would I recommend it too? – Fourteen and up. Homeschooled younger children may enjoy it. The feel of historical documents in the hand is mesmerizing. They were so well copied - you can still touch coffee cup stains, see page corners turned, and even try to read cursive handwriting.

Length? – About four evening read.

Characters? – Memorable, several characters.

Setting? – Earth, outer space, and the moon.

Written approximately? – Complied in the 2000's.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Will humans return to the moon? If so, will governments fund it, or will rich individuals fund it?

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Yes. This resource was written primarily about the United States Moon program. However, it was written in British English, and using the metrics for measurements. This can cause confusion for adults, when trying to see in their mind's eye the distances that are being discussed. It can also confuse children learning to spell correctly to see so many words consistently spelled an alternate way.

Short storyline: The story of the United States trials and tribulations when trying to reach the moon. ( )
