Going to the moon is not a small undertaking. Imagine, it had never been done before, and the mission was planned & executed in sixteen weeks! Apollo 8 is the story of a “wild crapshoot” that will bring you back to that time or open the door to an accomplishment that included a TV broadcast from the moon on Christmas Eve 1968.

August is Eclipse Month, so what better way to celebrate than by reading a fabulous book about the Great American Eclipse of 1878. It was the US government's first big foray into the science business, the zenith of the superstar status of scientist icon Thomas Edison, & the first opportunity modern astronomy would have to use equipment--& understanding--that had never been available for previous eclipses. An informative, compelling & timely read.
