On July 16, 1969 all eyes turned to the skies as Apollo 11 was launched into space and into history. While the rocket was launched from Florida, it was the Parkes Radio Telescope in Australia that allowed people from around the world to watch the moon landing on their television screens.

In this latest collaboration between Mark Greenwood and Terry Denton, we are taken back through history to this momentous occasion that captured the hearts and imaginations of children and adults alike. An exciting and captivating book that will be the perfect way to celebrate the 50th year anniversary of man first landing on the moon.
