I want more audiobooks like this in my life! I NEED more audiobooks like this in my life!! I love learning about Space and NASA'S programs
A fantastic little informative audio on all things Apollo. It’s succinct and packed with tonnes of great knowledge nuggets - you learn a lot in a short time! It was so interesting and it was a wonderful insight into our going to the moon. I loved the inclusion of media reports and news casts and actual audio from the missions which really added a sense of history to it. It wasn’t a dry reading of Apollo history, but greatly narrated with plenty of backing sounds and sound recordings which adds to the overall listening experiences. From the space race, the road to the stars, to the first man on the moon and the subsequent missions - It covered the successes and the failures of all the Apollo missions to date. Overall, a fab comprehensive overview of the human endeavour to leave our planet and begin our exploration beyond earth. Really easy to listen to and a great quick audio for an afternoon and can easily be finished in one sitting. I did and the time flew by!
This is a very short audiobook, but it packs a punch. It’s a summarized version of every mission of the Apollo Program, including original sound excerpts that make for fascinating history. In a time when space travel doesn’t seem like science fiction anymore (at least to the Moon), it’s hard to imagine that there was a time when space seemed so far away. The recordings on this program sound at once impossibly remote and very close. I was born too late, and yet listening to it was like being there. I enjoyed the narration by Matt Morales, but specially the parts read by Maren Hunsberger, who sounds like an informed, but friendly, guide. I chose to listen to this audiobook and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thank you, NetGalley/OrangeSky Audio!
Growing up, I was obsessed with NASA and the space program. This was a great refresher of the history of the program. I liked the enhanced audio used to color the narration. I only wish it had been a little longer and included a little more of what was accomplished with each successful mission. Focused on the Apollo program, I also liked the tie-ins to the Mercury and Gemini missions that preceded it. Another nice touch would have been to include more of the resulting enhancements to our lives, (technology, etc.) thanks to the research surrounding the Apollo space program. I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
