Blue Dot 138: James Donovan

Mar 23, 2019

Dave interviews James Donovan, author of the new book, Shoot for The Moon: The Space Race and The Extraordinary Voyage of Apollo 11. Donovan tells the story of both the Cold War driven space race and the culminating achievement of the moon landing in July of 1969.

Meticulously researched, the book is timed for the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing this summer. Donovan shares how he unearthed new and little known details of the mission from his exhaustive research and interviews with veterans of the Apollo program.
