DIY on the Moon

“DIY on the Moon: how Buzz saved the launch back to Earth”. It’s an extract from Buzz Adrin’s book Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon. I really need to get the book. Those few paragraphs there are riveting. I can’t even fathom the bravery of those guys.

  1. I shook hands with Buzz Aldrin once when he was doing a book signing the week I happened to be at Space Camp (nerd!). He has incredible stories; I just wish he were a better writer.

  2. Thanks for the link…looks like a fascinating book. I just ordered a sample sent to my new Kindle. Can’t wait till it arrives!

  3. Looks like an interesting read. I read a book a few years back called ‘From the Earth to the Moon’ (subsequently made in to a television series by Tom Hanks of all people 😉 ). I can’t remember that situation in the book.. will have to re-read it…
