With the passage of time there are opportunities to reconsider Project Apollo anew. This book draws out the statistical information about each of the flights that have been long buried in numerous technical memoranda and historical studies.
Has the Space Age had a significant effect on society? This volume is to examines the effects of spaceflight on society through scholarly research, making use especially of the tools of the historian and the broader social sciences and humanities.
