Since the first glimmerings of intellect on planet Earth the moons quicksilver light has beckoned. In July of 1969 the people of the world were witness to an event, which was the undisputed scientific accomplishment of the 20th century. When astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin planted their footsteps in the barren dusty powder of the lunar surface they not only fulfilled President John Kennedys bold challenge but also mankinds ancient dream. An accomplishment without parallel, the flight of Apollo 11 stands alone as humanitys greatest feat of imagination made manifest. Everything about project Apollo was an exercise in superlatives the Saturn V was the largest and most powerful machine ever made by man, wielding an unimaginable seven and a half million pounds of thrust while the Apollo spacecraft was able to travel a half a million miles and function with a precision to match the finest Swiss watch. Standing on the shoulders of generations, Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins heralded the arrival of anew era, an era in which the horizon of mankinds dreams would be forever shifted. In Apollo 11 The NASA Mission Reports Volume One some of the rare official documentation of this historic voyage is collected and made commercially available for the first time.
