Counting down from the first failed rocket launches in 1957 to the moment when Neil Armstrong steps onto the surface of the moon, T-Minus follows the race between the American and Soviet space programs. While showing the contributions of U.S. and Soviet scientists, astronauts, and cosmonauts, the book focuses on engineer Max Faget and designer Johnson "C.C." Caldwell as representatives of all those who played an important role in the American moon mission. End note. Black-and-white drawings.
