Book Review: Moon Dust, Andrew Smith

MoonDustThis book tells the journey taken by the author in his attempts to find and interview all the remaining astronauts who have walked on the moon. Twelve men in history have known what it is like, and at the time of his writing, only nine were alive. The book describes the impact such an event had on the lives of the men.

It’s an interesting read, primarily it’d good to hear about astronauts other than Buzz Aldrin – the others have just as interesting stories, both of their lunar expeditions, and the effect on their lives afterwards. Yet, the media attention is generally given to Buzz Aldrin these days, with his ideas on colonisation of Mars.
