Branley, Franklyn M., Illustrated by: Glanzman, Louis S.  
Man In Space to the Moon
 Picture
Publisher: Thomas Y. Crowell Company, 1970 New York.
ISBN: 069051686x Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good to Very Good. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall SIGNED by the author on half-title page! "In the summer of1960, man took a giant step into outer space when he set foot on another world. Franklyn M. Branley, Chairman of the American Museum-Hayden Planetarium, tells the story of man's landing on the moon, the achievements that led to it, and its significance to science. Louis Glanzman's illustrations add immediacy to this intriguing record of the Apollo 11 flight as the author describes the intricate maneuvers of separating the command and lunar modules, the voyage of the LM to the lunar surface, and the activities of the astronauts while they were on the moon. The age-old and once fantastic dream of reaching another wold had begun to emerge as a reality in 1957 when Sputnik I was launched into an earth-circling orbit. But while satellites have probed farther and farther into space to gather information, instruments cannot be programed to reveal unexpected conditions. A human being must be there to recognize and report them. Apollo 11, Eagle, and Tranquility Base; Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins - these names have become part of history, and Dr. Branley gives and exciting and accurate account of the achievements they represent." Well illustrated. 38 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Reinforced library binding. Dust jacket is in GOOD to VERY GOOD condition; some edgewear.
