This audio presentation of NASA's Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo space programs will delight aerospace fans who think they've heard it all before. Well-crafted mixtures of narration, music, and sound accompany the abundant recordings of working astronauts' transmitted voices during the triumphs and trials of early space travel. Mistakes and accidents never published in the popular media add surprise, suspense, and tragedy to a history book like no other. A nail-biting hour is devoted to the Apollo 13 mission, which suffered an onboard explosion traveling to the moon and only returned to Earth by the skill and resourcefulness of the engineers who sent it there. J.A.H.
