9. Moon Shot 1st (first) edition Text Only
Hardcover by Alan Shepard
The story of the golden years of American space exploration told by the men who rode the rockets. On October 4, 1957, the USSR launched Sputnik I, and the space race was born. Desperate to beat the Russians, NASA gathered a crew of daring test pilots: the seven men who were to lead America to the moon. The first into space was Alan Shepard; the last was Deke Slayton, whose irregular heartbeat grounded him until 1975. They spent the 60s at the forefront of NASA's effort to conquer space, and Moon Shot is their inside account of what many call the twentieth century's greatest feat. Collaborating with NBC's veteran space reporter Jay Barbree, Shepard and Slayton narrate the gripping story from the time of Shepard's first flight until he and eleven others walked on the moon. "Swashbuckling." -The New York Times." "A must read . . . an insight into the wonders of space flight, yes. But more important, readers come to know Alan Shepard and Deke Slayton, and come to respect their courage and feel genuine affection for these two American heroes." -President George H. W. Bush. "From the early Cold War days of the Space Race through the beginnings of the 'thaw,' Moon Shot comes alive." -Senator John H. Glenn. Another Mercury astronaut, Deke Slayton (1924-1993) was meant to be the second American in Earth orbit, but was grounded because of an irregular heartbeat. He stayed on at NASA to supervise his fellow astronauts and was returned to flight status in 1972. In 1975, after sixteen years as head of the astronaut office, Slayton made it into space for the historic first docking of an American and a Russian spacecraft, a step that was a long stride on the road to end the Cold War. Jay Barbree (b. 1933) is the author of eight books and has been NBC's space correspondent since the birth of NASA. He shared an Emmy Award for NBC's coverage of Apollo 11's first landing on the moon, and is a recipient of NASA's highest medal for Exceptional Public Service.
