50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF THE 
FIRST MANNED MOON LANDING

Apollo 11 launched on July 16th, 1969; its aim to make a manned landing on the moon, a goal set by President John F. Kennedy eight years earlier amidst the competition of the so-called Space Race between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. The lunar module touched down on the surface of the moon on 20th July and Neil Armstrong emerged first, uttering what has become one of the most famous quotes of all time -  “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.”

Many missions have followed, increasing our knowledge and thirst for knowledge of the universe. To commemorate this achievement, we have put together a selection of space-related books so you can explore the universe from the comfort of your own armchair or your own space by the pool.

We hope to hear some out of this world reviews! Leave us your Review in 3 Words on Twitter using the Hastag #DoncasterRead
