Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13 - Jim Lovell, Jeffrey Kluger


Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13 - Jeffrey Kluger, James Lovell 


Wow. The sheer awesomeness of this book has rendered me speechless. Forget boy bands and pop stars, troubled movie stars, and overpaid athletes. Men like Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, Fred Haise, and the scientists and engineers at Mission Control are the ones who kids (and adults!) should admire and aspire to become. Just wow.
