An excellent early book about a manned voyage to the Moon. It discusses the history of study of the Moon, what current theories about it are and why we must explore the Moon. It lays out the steps building up to a manned trip and then discusses an imaginary voyage from take-off (in your 6-man ship) to touchdown. Illustrations of rockets, astronauts, a lunar lander, and a Moon base.
