In summer 1969, astronauts landed on the moon and hippie hordes descended on Woodstock—two era-defining events that are not entirely coincidental. Neil M. Maher shows how NASA’s celestial aspirations were tethered to terrestrial concerns of the time: the civil rights struggle, the antiwar movement, environmentalism, feminism, and the culture wars.

The race for space begins on October 4, 1957 as the Soviet Union stuns the world and launches the first man made satellite - a feat until then only read about in science fiction. America is caught unprepared for 1957 and must answer this embarrassment to the world by proving its superiority; however, each time America tries to launch a satellite - let alone test a new rocket - it fails. • How could America have taken a back seat in the missile race? • How did America take the lead and win the race to the moon in as little as ten years? • How did America gain the necessary technology and ingenuity to not only launch men into outer space, but also land them on the moon and safely return? • Why did man even go to the moon? • How has the space program affected our lives today? Casey spent his life researching the space program and interviewing many people involved in it, from scientists to astronauts, to find answers to these questions. Casey, an accomplished technical writer, astronomy columnist and artist, began to write this book after he was inspired as a young child when he witnessed, along with the rest of the world, Apollo 11 land three men on the moon in 1969. Casey enjoyed educating students about the space program and wrote this book to share an enthusiasm about science, especially for those never thought about looking up at the night sky and wondering about the stars. Casey wanted students to ask questions and to gain a perspective on how incredible science is. But mostly, he wanted to inspire students to pursue a career in science to continue the peaceful exploration of space for generations to come.

This memoir of a veteran NASA flight director tells riveting stories from the early days of the Mercury program through Apollo 11 (the moon landing) and Apollo 13, for both of which Kranz was flight director. Gene Kranz was present at the creation of America’s manned space program and was a key player in it for three decades. As a flight director in NASA’s Mission Control, Kranz witnessed firsthand the making of history. He participated in the space program from the early days of the Mercury program to the last Apollo mission, and beyond. He endured the disastrous first years when rockets blew up and the United States seemed to fall further behind the Soviet Union in the space race. He helped to launch Alan Shepard and John Glenn, then assumed the flight director’s role in the Gemini program, which he guided to fruition. With his teammates, he accepted the challenge to carry out President John F. Kennedy’s commitment to land a man on the Moon before the end of the 1960s. Kranz recounts these thrilling historic events and offers new information about the famous flights. What appeared as nearly flawless missions to the Moon were, in fact, a series of hair-raising near misses. When the space technology failed, as it sometimes did, the controllers’ only recourse was to rely on their skills and those of their teammates. He reveals behind-the-scenes details to demonstrate the leadership, discipline, trust, and teamwork that made the space program a success. A fascinating firsthand account by a veteran mission controller of one of America’s greatest achievements, Failure is Not an Option reflects on what has happened to the space program and offers his own bold suggestions about what we ought to be doing in space now.
