Mission Control, This Is Apollo
July 20, 1969, marked one of the climactic moments in our history, the day Apollo 11 landed on the moon. But it is only one piece of a magnificent story. Mission Control, This Is Apollo, by the acclaimed Andrew Chaikin recounts space history from the Mercury missions through Apollo 17 and beyond. It is illustrated with stunning full-color paintings by astronaut Alan Bean, who walked on the moon with Pete Conrad on Apollo 12 and has devoted his post-NASA life to creating art. Handsome, informative, and dramatic, this is no textbook, it is the tale of humankind's greatest adventure in the last frontier: space.

Apollo 11 was the first time humans landed on the moon, but without the earlier Apollo missions, it would not have been possible. Subsequent missions expanded our knowledge of the moon. This title is illustrated with paintings by astronaut Alan Bean, the fourth man to walk on the moon, as well as photographs.
