The Moon Landing 30 Years Later
Cyberspace a great resource for outer space


The Washington Post

        For more information on Apollo 11 and related missions, a good place to begin is NASA's online anniversary Web site:

        www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/ap11ann incorporates dozens of color images and numerous links to other Web pages.

        Other Internet sources include:

        The Smithsonian Institution's Air and Space Museum at www.nasm.edu:80/APOLLO. The Apollo 11 Command Module is on display at the museum.

        In Rosslyn, Va., the Newseum has a modest exhibit on world press coverage of Apollo and space travel in general. See www.newseum.org/dateline_moon

        In print, one of the most complete and accessible popular accounts is Andrew L. Chaikin's “A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts” (1994).

        Michael Collins described his experiences in “Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut's Journeys” (1974), and Buzz Aldrin wrote “Men from Earth” (1989) with Malcolm McConnell.
