And the moon came nearer: Journey back to July 20, 1969.

It has been called thesingle most historic event of the 20th century. On July 20, 1969, after a decade of tests and training, supported by a staff of 400,000 engineers and scientists, and with a budget of billions, the most powerful rocket ever launched brought Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins to the moon.

Nobody captured the men, the mood, and the machinery like Norman Mailer, hired by LIFE magazine to cover the mission in a dazzling reportage he later enhanced into the brilliantly crafted book, Of a Fire on the Moon.

Rediscover this epoch-making event with TASCHEN's adaptation of Mailer's account, now in our popular Reader's Edition so you can really curl up and travel not just back in time, but into outer space.

The text is accompanied by hundreds of photographsfrom the NASA vaults, thearchives ofLIFE, and other leading magazines of the day, documenting the development of the agency and the mission, life inside the command module and on the moon s surface, as well as the world s jubilant reaction to the landing.

Captions by leading Apollo 11 expertsexplain the history and science behind the images, citing the mission log, publications of the day, and postflight astronaut interviews, while an evocative introduction by Colum McCanncelebrates Mailer's incomparable skill at transforming the science of space...the weight of history...the breadth of mythology into prose.
