Descripción: “An extraordinary delight for a reader of any age.” —The New York Times Book ReviewBrian Floca explores Apollo 11’s famed moon landing with this newly expanded edition of Moonshot!Simply told, grandly shown, and now with eight additional pages of brand-new art and more in-depth information about the historic moon landing, here is the flight of Apollo 11. Here for a new generation of readers and explorers are the steady astronauts clicking themselves into gloves and helmets, strapping themselves into sideways seats. Here are their great machines in all their detail and monumentality, the ROAR of rockets, and the silence of the Moon. Here is a story of adventure and discovery—a story of leaving and returning during the summer of 1969, and a story of home, seen whole, from far away.ReviewTelling the Apollo 11 story more fully while recognizing the contributions of women and minorities, here's an engaging, enlightening, and timely new edition of this visually stunning book. -- Booklist, starred reviewA soaring commemoration of our space program's most spectacular achievement.
