Just in time for the much-heralded anniversary of Apollo 11's historic 1969 touchdown in the Sea of Tranquility comes Apollo: Through the Eyes of the Astronauts (Abrams Books, June 2009). The book features a foreward co-authored by physicist Stephen Hawking and photographs handpicked by each of the surviving astronauts from the Apollo program—many of the pictures were taken by the astronauts themselves.

From the historic first landing—and the ensuing fanfare—to the 1972 conclusion of the Apollo program, the images provide a visual tour through the only missions to ever bring humankind to another world.
