Description

About The Book

The most beautiful and influential photographs ever made were of the whole earthseen from space. They were taken from the moon, almost as an afterthought, by theastronauts of the Apollo space programme. They inspired a generation to think moreseriously about our responsibility for this tiny oasis in space, the 'blue marble' fallingthrough empty darkness.

This is a book about the long road to the capture of those unforgettable images. It isa history of the space programme and of the ways in which it transformed our viewof the earth and changed the lives of the astronauts who walked in space and on themoon. It is the story of the often blemished visionaries who inspired that journeyinto space: Charles Lindbergh, Robert Goddard and Wernher Von Braun, and of thecourageous pilots who were the first humans to escape the Earth's orbit.
