in breve
From 1969 to 1972, twelve astronauts embarked on the most extraordinary voyage ever done by man, destination the Moon. Four decades have gone by and no one else has trod the lunar surface. Only nine of the astronauts who made that voyage are still alive. And in the near future, none of them will remain.

Before this occurs, Andrew Smith collected their testimonies, reconstructing in an unusual manner the odyssey of the handful of heroes glorified by the entire USA, and describing how after that, these men had to face the unpredictable consequences of that voyage alone. In this book, the astronauts tell in their own words how, once they had touched down on earth, they had to grapple with a surrealistic and epochal adventure that forever changed their lives – and ours.
