SHOOTING FOR THE MOON The Strange History of Human Spaceflight BOB BERMAN

Shooting for the Moon provides an accessible and detailed look into one of the most intriguing pro- grams ever: the American lunar program. From the pioneer efforts of test pilots in the early “space race,” to the worldwide exhilaration behind man’s first walk on the moon, to the devastation behind the disas- trous Challenger accident and the new visions the government now has for the program, author Bob Berman recounts for the lay reader all the advances and setbacks that have taken place during the immense growth of the space program.

Bob Berman is author of Strange Universe and Secrets of the Night Sky. He has a weekly radio show and a monthly hour-long call-in show on NPR Northeast. He also writes a column for The Old Farmer’s Almanac and is a monthly columnist for Discover and Astronomy magazines. He lives in upstate New York.
