Customer Review

on 19 July 2013
Imagine you had dinner with Buzz and then you move to a terrace, overlooking Cape Cañaveral, and Buzz begins to tell you how all started...and where it should go: this is the view of Buzz regarding how we might be able to reach Mars, with all the details on how to do it: political, practical, theoretical, social, but all explained in a logical, friendly chat, with plenty of interesting anecdotes, pictures, etc.
For young students: it's an amusing way of understanding the social context of why in the 60's the USA wanted to go to the Moon, all the the space history...up to why we should go today to Mars and how all the socio-political context have changed.
For everyone: extremely easy to read and understand, but at the same time, the reader will learn loads of interesting facts and will educate the reader on the importance of space exploration.
The only but is, that I find it a bit centered on why it is only up to the USA to lead space exploration; I would have preferred a more global approach and less self-centered.
