Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
Relive the days of the Apollo era with this Time-Life Records audio and book set, "To the Moon: The Dramatic Story of Man's Boldest Venture Told in the Voices of Those Who Achieved It." This set is from the personal collection of astronaut Paul Weitz, who has signed it, adding "NASA Astronaut" below his name, as well as the inscription, "One of my souvenirs of the Apollo program."
Though the exterior of the set's casing does suffer some wear, everything within is in excellent condition. Inside the printed cardboard case is a hardback book, as well as a hardback casing containing six two-sided records. The record set, entitled "To the Moon I: The Story in Sound," is packaged with a useful key to identify the content of each record. The 191-page book, "To the Moon II: The Stories in Pictures and Text," is filled with glossy, full-color photos spanning America's great achievements in space from the first experimental spacecraft to the unforgettable Apollo 11 mission.
Although Weitz served on the later Skylab 2 and STS-6 missions, he was selected as part of NASA's Group 5 astronauts in 1966 and trained and worked as an astronaut during the Apollo program.
