Summary
On July 20th, 1969, over half of the world's population tuned in to witness the first lunar landing, watching as Neil Armstrong ventured outside the cabin door of Apollo 11 and declared "that's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." As the most expensive civilian scientific and technological program in American history, Project Apollo symbolized the unmatched prestige of American space exploration. But the project was never just about winning the Space Race, advancing scientific progress, or even conquering the final frontier: the American government was more interested in establishing its superiority much closer to home. Muir-Harmony explores how and why the moon landing became one of the most decisive geopolitical events of the 20th century, an unconventional proposal that had the potential to restore America's tarnished geopolitical standing. -- adapted from jacket
