Another scrub! Shuttle began fueling at the last possible moment, then another hydrogen leak appeared. I'm sure you've seen the reports- no new attempts until July. So back to T-Ville and some rest. LRO/Lcross/Atlas will attempt launch Thurs or Fri PM- keeping fingers crossed anew.

Also had the good fortune to see Andy Chaikin, an old friend, at KSC yesterday. Got a chance to see his fine new book, "Voices From the Moon." Really nice work and some great original material from the Apollo astronauts, as only Andy can tell it.

I will get back to posting downloadables in a couple of days-for now, avoiding the 95 degree heat and 95% humidity! Yuck!

Welcome to the Missions to the Moon book blog. This is a place to re-live the heady days of the Apollo and Soyuz lunar programs- perhaps the crowning achievements of the 20th Century. Many blog entries will include a new downloadable image or artifact from the space age- items rarely seen and not available in print. It's all in the spirit of my newest book, Missions to the Moon- to remember the great adventure of the Golden Age of space exploration, and ponder what wonders await us in space.
