Summary
Told in free verse, the story of the American effort to land the first man on the moon comes to life. During the two thousand nine hundred and seventy-nine days following his speech, eighteen astronauts climbed into spaceships; three of them died before even leaving the ground. Eight rockets soared into space. And four hundred thousand people-- engineers, technicians, scientists, mathematicians, and machinists-- joined Project Apollo in hopes of making the dream a reality
