Description:
New book, 415 pages. Growing up on either side of the Iron Curtain, Alexei Leonov and David Scott shared the same dream - to become a pilot. Excelling at flying, they were chosen by their countries burgeoning space programmes to be part of the greatest technological race ever - to land a man on the moon. Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov became the first man to walk in space; he won a place in history, but almost lost his life. The American space programme was fraught with danger too; in 1966 David Scott and Neil Armstrong were seconds away from death as Gemini 8 spun violently out of control. Both men survived against dramatic odds with Scott later flying to the moon as commander of Apollo 15, the most complex expedition in the histoy of space exploration. Scott and Leonov were eventually brought together in the planning of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project that culminated in the US and USSR crews shaking hands in space as their space craft united. The project marked the end of the Cold War silence and started a friendship that would last for decades.
