When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon in 1969, they personified an almost unimaginable feat—and cemented America's victory in the space race. Telling the story from both the American and the Russian points of view, Von Hardesty and Gene Eisman show how each nation played a vital role in stimulating the work of the other, with the launch of Sputnik as the opening bell for a world-changing struggle. The son of the former Soviet Premier and an accomplished engineer, Sergei Khrushchev contributes the foreword.
