One Giant Leap: The Apollo 11 Moon Landing
THE STORY: “That’s one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.” On July 21, 1969, humans for the first time stepped onto another world. Fifty years later, the scope and daring of the Apollo 11 moon landing is still not fully understood. In ONE GIANT LEAP, Tony Award–winner J.T. Rogers tells the gripping, surprising story behind one of the greatest achievements in history. Weaving together the actual transcripts of the Apollo 11 mission, news coverage of the period, and Rogers’s interviews with the men and women who made the mission happen, ONE GIANT LEAP captures the thrills, anxieties, and triumphs of a group of men and women striving to do the impossible.
