Neil Armstrong once recalled standing on the Moon and noticing he could blot out the Earth with his thumb. Did that make him feel really big, he was asked? ‘No,’ the great astronaut replied. ‘It made me feel really, really small.’
Of the twelve astronauts who walked on the Moon only nine are still alive. Soon there will be none. This book is about these nine men. How did they cope with the years that followed such an extraordinary adventure…not very well, and with little help from NASA.
