The Apollo lunar missions of the 1960s and 1970s have been called the last optimistic acts of the twentieth century. Twelve astronauts made this greatest of all journeys and were indelibly marked by it, for better or for worse. Journalist Andrew Smith tracks down the nine surviving members of this elite group to find their answers to the question "Where do you go after you've been to the Moon?" A thrilling blend of history, reportage, and memoir, MOONDUST rekindles the hopeful excitement of an incandescent hour in America's past and captures the bittersweet heroism of those who risked everything to hurl themselves out of the known world—and who were never again quite able to accept its familiar bounds. Chapters include: Dreaming of a Moonage; The Hologram Man; Then There’s Buzz Aldrin!; The Life of Neil; Paint the Dust Red; The Quiet Stuff; Luna Meets Her Match; Sons and Lunar Modules; more. Imported from Britain. “Fascinating and disturbing.”— J.G. Ballard
