Apollo 11 – The Untold Story

These are just some of those amazing facts:

* As we all watched Armstrong set foot on the Moon we all thought we were watching the direct transmission – but we weren’t seeing for real. Find out why not and what you and I actually saw!

* Also amazing is the fact that there was no outside door handle on the lunar lander. What would have happened if they got locked out!

* Did you know Buzz Aldrin carried out Holy Communion on himself on the Moon, that his life fell apart when he returned from the Moon, that Neil and Buzz almost died on the Moon because of a broken ignition switch?

* Upon return the three astronauts were held in quarantine, just in case they came back with any strange organisms from the moon.

* Was Armstrong NASA’s first choice ?

* The original Moon landing TV tapes are now missing…why?

* By the way, in a case of bureaucracy gone mad, the astronauts had to fill out a customs declaration form after returning with their samples of moon rocks and lunar dust. True!

Over 50 pages, 13 book reviews and well over 40 outstanding images included
