Here is the exciting story of Apollo 11 and the three men who made the historic flight to the moon: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. When they were boys, each had dreamed of flying planes. Their dreams came true when they joined the United States military, flying and testing new types of aircraft. Finally, they became members of a select group of flyers called the Astronaut Corps, which would venture into space. From Project Mercury, whose goal was to put a single astronaut in orbit, to Project Apollo, whose goal was to put an astronaut on the moon, Richard Hilliard's lively picture book, featuring simple text, bold illustrations, and informative sidebars, follows the inspiring journey of three genuine heroes.
