Description About the author SIGNATURE AUTHENTICITY

Personally signed by Buzz Aldrin, one of the first men to walk on the moon!

"NASA: The Complete Illustrated History", by Michael Gorn. The Easton Press, Norwalk, CT. Signed Limited Collector's Edition. Forward by Buzz Aldrin. Full genuine leather.

Michael Gorn has prepared an engaging volume on the space age. His NASA: The Complete Illustrated History is a lively and richly illustrated account of the organization that led and contines to lead America's ever-evolving space program. The book is a welcome addition to the historical literature on space exploration--and it will appeal to the general reader and specialist alike.

Includes all the classic Easton Press qualities:

* Premium Leather

* Long-lasting, High Quality Acid-neutral Paper
* Smyth-sewn Pages for Strength and Durability
* Beautiful Illustrations


Popular perceptions of NASA focus almost exclusively on the post-1958 era, when the organization oversaw America's successful effort to land a man on the Moon. As Gorn shows, the story is much larger than this particular epoch. In its first incarnation, NASA was known as NACA, when the organization played a pivotal role on the cutting edge of aviation design. Gorn's lively narrative tells this story along with the dramatic era of space exploration. This comprehensive approach gives the book unique character, allowing the reader to comprehend the entire sweep of aerospace history.

No less important, Gorn is attentive to the role of key personalitise, some known and others lesser known to the general public. One of the most impressive dimensions of this beautifully designed book is the masterful way it matches images to the story line of the text. Most stunnning arguably are the color images showcasing the Apollo and Shuttle flights: the reader acquires a keen appreciation for the technical sophistication of rocketry and the sheer size/drama of space flight. I enthusiastically endorse this book as a meaningful way to appreciated the origins, development, and impact of NASA on the twentieth century.
