Coming in 2019 via Oxford University Press, The Apollo Chronicles: Engineering America's First Moon Missions takes readers on an engaging and immersive journey from the space program's origins through the end of the Apollo program, including many new interviews and reflections. Born to a NASA family just months before the first moon landing, Brown presents the story of the earthbound engineers who confronted an incredible series of obstacles. By solving, soothing, or circumventing each challenge, they kept astronauts balanced on a mathematical razor's edge long enough to survive these unlikely journeys to the Moon and back.
