Epic Rivalry : Inside the Soviet and American Space Race
When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon in 1969, they personified an almost unimaginable feat--the incredibly complex task of sending humans safely to another celestial body. This extraordinary odyssey, which grew from the rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War, was galvanized by the Sputnik launch in 1957.
To mark the fiftieth anniversary of Sputnik, National Geographic recaptures this gripping moment in the human experience with a lively and compelling new account. Approaching its subject from a uniquely balanced perspective, this important new narrative chronicles the epic race to the moon and back as it has never been told before--and captures the interest of casual browsers and science, space, and history enthusiasts alike.
