Far Side of the Moon: The Story of Apollo 11’s Third Man

We rated this book:

$16.95

This book is about the third person on the Apollo 11 mission, Michael Collins, the man who stayed behind on the command capsule while the other two walked on the moon. This book talks about what he had to do while he was up in space, about the the other astronauts who had attempted this before, about the different parts of the rocket, and about how many times the command module orbited the moon. It also talks about what Collins did for his training and what he had to do to get this third seat on Apollo 11. The way the book is written makes you feel like you are actually experiencing the flight with Michael Collins; you feel like you are there, and you feel the weight of his responsibility for the mission. The book is illustrated and written almost like a graphic novel, with cartoon black-and-white drawings; this makes you feel even more like you are out in space with this team, and it is a very interesting and accessible format that will appeal to all ages. It is a great book to learn about this very important, but not as well-known, aspect of this historic space flight.
