Description:
 Join New York Times bestselling author Robert Kurson as he chronicles Apollo 8–a mission many still call the greatest ever undertaken in space. By August 1968, the American space program was in danger of failing in its two most important objectives: to land a man on the Moon by President Kennedy’s end-of-decade deadline, and to triumph over the Soviets in space. With its back against the wall, NASA made an almost unimaginable leap: it would scrap its usual methodical approach and risk everything on a sudden launch, sending the first men in history to the moon—in just four months. And it would all happen at Christmas. Registration required.
