Destination Moon tells the significant, spectacular and intriguing story of the Apollo space programme through first-person accounts by the astronauts themselves, explained and put into context with expert commentary by Rod Pyle. Travelling to the most forbidding environment known to man, twelve courageous individuals stepped out of their tiny spaceships and onto another world. And with that, the history of humankind was irrevocably changed. But the adventures live on, and with the 50th anniversary of the moon landings in 2019, the world is once more gazing moonward. Destination Moon contains over 100 images - many of which are rarely seen - drawn from original NASA film. Creating a remarkable book that transports readers to a world they have never seen like this before.

Rod Pyle has written widely on space and the inner workings of NASA. He is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post and, as well as other media outlets. He has produced numerous documentaries for The History Channel and Discovery Communications. He holds a master's degree from Standford University, worked at the Griffith Observatory in LA and wrote the Smithsonian's Destination Moon and Carlton Books' Missions to the Moon.
